Forgiveness & Reconciliation 2-Weekend Workshop in Ottawa Valley. NEW DATES: March 29-31 and April 26-28, 2019
Fri 1 pm to 8 pm – Sat & Sun 8:30 am to 5 pm
How can we overcome the anger and resentment generated by the harms suffered in our lives? How can we transform narratives of victimhood and desires of revenge to be able to move forward?
We believe that forgiveness can be learned and fostered. This entails countless benefits for the forgivers and their collectivity, by restoring persons and righting relationships.
If you want to embark on a personal journey of liberation from the impact of harm in your life, this 2-weekend workshop is for you.
In Weekend 1 (March 29-31, 2019) you will:
> Work with a personal offense experienced in your past.
> Understand your emotional responses towards conflict.
> Lessen your pain and hatred by breaking the cycle of violence and revenge.
> Find the strength to share your story, make catharsis and overcome victimhood.
In Weekend 2 (April 26-28, 2019) you will:
> Cultivate strategies and principles of self-care and dignity.
> Recognize the role of truth and justice in restoring trust.
> Discover restorative practices and new narratives for your future.
