Are you ready to release the burden of anger, resentment, recrimination, and regret and feel liberated fand more empowered? In these challenging times, it’s more important than ever to expand our capacity to skillfully work through fear, anger, divisiveness, and other patterns that limit our well-being. Whether your hardest challenge is in the arena of relationship, family, work, #metoo, social change or otherwise, mastering the act of forgiveness is essential for anyone seeking psychological freedom and emotional transformation.
In this retreat, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the profound, transformational power of forgiveness. You'll be shown how to break down and clear limiting stories, shift core beliefs, and unwind shame, blame, and retaliatory patterning. Ultimately, the path of forgiveness is a life-changing journey back to our authentic self, our soul self, and the embodiment of love and compassion.
We will guide you through a powerful, research-based forgiveness process that can be used to heal any type of conflict or painful situation, and addresses both forgiveness of others and self-forgiveness. We’ll engage mind-body methods, group process, movement and integration to ensure lasting results. Bring your greatest challenges and move toward more resourcefulness, love, connection, and inner peace than you may have thought possible.
The retreat will be facilitated by Eileen Barker, joined by Biodanza Teacher Zora Couer de Roy.
