Forgiveness as a Spiritual Practice
Find healing and inner peace by choosing:
Forgiveness as a Spiritual Practice, facilitated by Sue Regen
Friday, May 19, 7-8:30pm and continuing through Saturday and Sunday
NOTE: You MUST be present at the initial session on Friday to continue the course.
This course is limited to 28 participants, so register early!
Life brings to each of us, experiences of anger, fear, hurt, and pain. What we do with these is up to each individual. Choosing to practice forgiveness can bring healing and inner peace. Forgiveness work helps us reconnect with our selves and others in more loving ways. Research shows that it’s great for our physical health, too.
Come, join with others who are willing to take some steps along this spiritual path. Focus is on tools and techniques, not on therapy. Workshop will include presentations, quiet worship, guided meditation, practicing techniques, and group and individual time.
Topics include: what forgiveness is/is not, tools and techniques for forgiving, health and forgiveness, self-forgiveness, boundary setting, and if time allows, the role of apology.
The first session begins on Friday, May 19, at 7 pm EDT (6 pm CDT) and concludes at 8:30 p.m. Please note that you MUST be present at this initial session in order to continue the workshop. The course continues with two sessions the next day, Saturday, May 20, 10 am to noon EDT (9 to 11 am CDT) and 1:30 to 3:30 pm EDT (12:30 to 2:30 pm CDT). It concludes on Sunday, May 21, in the afternoon commencing at 3 pm and concluding at 5 pm.
