“Christianity is not the only religion to command forgiveness. It is at the heart of every significant religious, philosophical, ethical, psychological or even political construct.”
This full-day workshop addresses how we have most likely forgiven many times, yet we often re-experience the hurt we have been trying to forget. How do we forgive? How do we move beyond the hurts and take them to God? Includes lunch, guided meditation, and exclusive book signing event. Limited space.
Forgiveness is essential to emotional and physical well-being. Join us for a rare opportunity to intimately study with master teacher and Trappist monk William Meninger. Based on his best-selling book, Fr. William will discuss how to overcome obstacles to forgiveness and develop your capacity for lasting peace. All faiths welcome.
