Day of Mindfulness: Opening to Forgiveness 
with Diana Winston 

 
Diana Winston

So many of us carry resentment, anger, hurt, and disappointment towards individuals, groups, and even the world. These emotions burden us and we can carry them for a lifetime. We suffer from the ways others have hurt us, but we also suffer from the memory of the pain we have caused to others. Often the hardest is the blame and hurt we carry towards ourselves.

Forgiveness is a conscious, deliberate decision to release these feelings. It is tremendously joyful and helpful when we touch into it, even briefly.

Through the transformative power of mindfulness and specific forgiveness practices, we can learn how it is possible to give up the resentments, let go of the hurt and anger, and move towards forgiveness for others, from others, and towards ourselves.

This daylong will include sitting walking meditation, lecture, and exercises to work with powerful practice of forgiveness.

Note: The topic of forgiveness is challenging so we recommend that you have at least some experience with mindfulness before joining this day. Also, there will be no pressure to forgive anyone or anything that you do not feel ready to forgive. You can take the material of the day at your own pace and only do what you feel ready and/or willing to do.

Please bring your lunch with you.
