- How to forgive others.
- Tools for overcoming resentment, fear and anger.
- Learn adaptive mindfulness strategies.
Have you wanted to forgive someone but can't? Or, perhaps you've decided that you have forgiven, but still feel negative around that person or just by thinking of them. There is a reason why you're attempts at forgiveness have failed. In this class, you will learn why you can't simply "choose" to forgive someone and it be effective. More importantly, you will learn how to forgive through the power of mindful, self-regulation, which intern can allow you not to feel negative towards that person any longer. The great lie is that the other person is the problem. The problem is no longer with the other person, but rather the reaction that the body and mind have when we encounter them, whether that be in person or in thought. In this course you will learn mindfulness techniques that work directly with forgiveness and move towards healing. Joins us today and FORGIVE.

Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet. ~ Thich Nhat Hahn
You've made it this far and earned one extra gift. It is what I like to call, "A Walk in Space".
Choose a path that you can take a 15 minute walk down each day. Walk very slowly down your street, a greenway or hiking trail. As you walk, notice each thing you see, giving thanks for each. The key her is to walk slowly, being mindful of each step, each smell, sight and the feel of the air. Continuously giving thanks (Gratitude) to what it is that you are witnessing. "Thank you for this path". "Thank you for this tree", "this sky". Whatever it is that you experience, express gratitude in whatever way feels most natural. Perhaps you walk with your hand on your heart. Maybe you stop a blooming bush or stream and close your eyes for a moment. To be mindful in this way, is what has always been meant by the phrase, "stop and smell the roses". It's not that life is hectic (though it is) and it is saying to somehow enjoy life, but rather to notice your coexistence with the hidden wonder of reality itself. To be fully present with the natural world, of which we are all a part. It is to become aware that we are not separate and cannot be separated from this one experience of life. Though, your mind insists otherwise. To walk slowly in this way, allows your mind to rest into the very thing that it struggles so hard to resist. After a period of time while walking and noticing, begin to imagine the person that you are forgiving walking along side you, also giving thanks. There is no need to acknowledge one another, only to recognize that both are present and both are grateful. This is your visualization, so even if the one walking with you isn't a model of gratitude normally, it doesn't matter. Here, they are peaceful. Here, somehow they have escaped the wounds of their past to, a least for a few moments, be the person that we have always wanted them to be. After a few more minutes, they simply stop to be mindful of a part of their experience and your walk continues, giving thanks, breathing deeply.
Now you have three powerful tools for changing not only how you forgive, but the experience of forgiveness itself. Continue the practices that you've learned here until you feel as if you have truly experienced forgiveness.
Warmest wishes for your practice and your life,
