FREEDOM Through FORGIVENESS
Not forgiving is a kind of soul sickness that saps our energy and keeps us from fully accessing clear Life Energy to fuel our walks in life. It represents a kind of stuckness which is fueled by our anger, disappointment, fears, and pain which block our healing and growth. Our injuries drain our spirit with great costs to our physical, emotional and spiritual health. They also keep us from being fully present with our clients who struggle with their pain from not forgiving.
This workshop will emphasize the freedom that is yours through full acceptance of where you are in the forgiveness journey and experiencing ways to heal the impacts of your pain that keep preventing you from experiencing full forgiveness of your Self and others. Your transformational healing will enable you to transcend the most hurtful of circumstances. Your freedom will then enable you to re-claim your inner vitality and release any lingering bitterness, shame, guilt, or fears. You will emerge feeling much more fully alive!
