Gift of Forgiveness Retreat

July 18, 2020 @ 5:30 am - July 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm PDT

Abbess teaches Buddhism.

Teachings and meditation with Ven. Thubten Chodron

Throughout a lifetime, at one time or another, almost all of us will meet a situation that leaves us feeling wronged, betrayed, and deeply hurt. Psychologists and spiritual teachers of every tradition agree that forgiveness heals the emotional pain that bitterness and resentment create. But what is forgiveness? And how do we get there?

In this weekend of teachings, Ven. Thubten Chodron explains the benefits of forgiveness, how to begin to let go of our anger, and the freedom that comes from letting go of past hurts. Forgiveness is a key step to opening our hearts to greater love and compassion.

Go here for the retreat schedule, direct links, and recitations and prayers.
