Forgiveness

Forgiveness and Meditation: Using Mindfulness to Release Resentment and Blame (via RADICAL COMPASSION INSTITUTE)

In this online, on-demand course, we’ll explore forgiveness through short talks and meditations. While blame and punishment might temporarily interrupt a pattern of behavior, they do not create the grounds for deepened understanding, compassion and transformation. Only when we include ourselves and others in our heart do we serve a path of true healing, connection and freedom.
