If you were to die today, what might be unsaid or unsettled? We will take the time to address what is often easily avoided for a lifetime with this practice.
Having someone to forgive seems to come with being human. We feel that the quotes and concepts regarding forgiveness make sense -the whole idea that it’s not about freeing the other person but freeing yourself- yet we’ve found it’s often more complicated than simply making the decision to do so.
We will ask difficult questions... What if the person we need to forgive has died? What if it’s not healthy to have a relationship with the person we would like to forgive? What if we sometimes have feelings of freedom and understanding and other times not?
As usual, we will ask more questions than we answer, and create a space to explore this often complex topic with the support of one another.
