Unitarian Universalist Church

Palo Alto CA

We all have people in our lives who are difficult for us and with whom we experience separation.  Forgiveness and reconciliation are what's needed. But how do we get there? How do we get past our resentment, anger, and pain?  How do we transform these into real forgiveness so that our hearts can rest with these people?

You will learn:

Methods to transform your resentment, anger, and pain.

Healing to soften your heart towards people you find challenging.

Ways to communicate with them that leads to forgiveness and reconciliation.

The freedom that comes from dropping burdens your heart has carried for years even decades.

    I've been walking the Sufi Path for more than 10 years and found this workshop and it's process a refreshing approach to a difficult and challenging topic. I will continue to use the process in many areas of my life.
