Whether it is the betrayals, disappointments, and abandonments experienced in our interpersonal lives, the injustices and tragedies perpetrated in society, or the various ways we have failed to live up to our own or others expectations of ourselves, forgiveness practice can begin to loosen the ropes binding us to the past. It can allow us to come more fully into our hearts and can be a catalyst that transforms bitterness, anger, and grief into compassion and lovingkindness.

Join us for a 5-meeting course examining forgiveness and how to heal our relationships with others, ourselves and the past. We will meet in person every other Monday evening and have home practice in the weeks between. This course is appropriate for meditation practitioners of all levels.

If there’s ever been a time when we needed our practice to lean on – it’s now. What helps the most is sangha, a group of one’s own, a place and time to sit together, develop gentle ways to untangle our tangles, dissolve delusion, see through the causes of suffering, and find peace. Our practice can guide our minds to calm down and our hearts to open up. For all of us, it’s been said, “Take care of your practice and it will take care of you.” This is a workshop for MBSR alumni and those with some background in Buddhist meditation. All proceeds from this program will go to support New York Insight.
