Forgiveness: Learning to Keep Our Hearts Open
A Daylong Retreat led by Janka Livoncova

Saturday, February 10, 2018, 10am-4:30pm
@ The Center for Mindful Living

Like the practice of compassion, forgiveness does not ignore the truth of our suffering.  Forgiveness is not weak.  It demands courage and integrity.  Yet only forgiveness and love can bring about the peace we long for. – Jack Kornfield

We all know that forgiveness is a wonderful idea and a spiritually evolved thing to do – that is until we have something to forgive. It is only then we realize that unforgiving is the default and that forgiveness is a process, which requires great care and attention. During this retreat we will be cultivating a forgiving heart and mind, a heart that has the capacity to live with openness and trust, and a mind that no longer carries the burdens of the past, endlessly replaying hurt and pain.

Through the practice of forgiveness we will learn how to meet the hurt of betrayal, loss and anger with understanding, compassion and courage. We will practice releasing our hearts from the pain of resentment, anger and fear to find peace and ease in our lives.

A Day of Mindful Practice with Kittisaro and Thanissara

Sunday, March 25, 2018, 10am-4:00pm
@ The Center for Mindful Living

Mindfulness is the art of non-judgmental attention applied to the internal and external experience of the present moment as it is felt within body, mind and heart. While mindfulness reduces stress and increases well being in daily life, it’s also central to the realization of inner freedom and deep peace. We will explore different dimensions of mindfulness and how to practice it. We will also touch into the transformative power of mindfulness and its ability to reduce negative emotions while increasing kindness, joy and equanimity. There will be talks, guided meditations and group discussion.

Fee: $40 + Dana for the teacher
