Traditional forgiveness offers compassion when we have been harmed and takes responsibility and apologizes when we have harmed. In radical forgiveness, we go beyond blame and take courageous responsibility for what is unhealed in ourselves to attract any offender – personally, socially or politically. We move from understandable victimization to revolutionary gratitude for the soul growth that any harm and betrayal have catapulted us into.
We are able to eventually say, "It couldn't have been any other way." This can be a tall order. Committed attention and surrendering to the rich journey that radical forgiveness is, make it possible.
In this 2-hour talk and workshop, Cyntha will take participants through the rich journey that radical forgiveness is. She will includes exercises from:
- Buddhist Forgiveness Meditation
- A Course in Miracles
- The Karpman Victim Triangle
- Colin Tipping’s Radical Forgiveness
Cost: BD20 (payable in advance to Words)
