"Forgiveness is giving up all hope for a better past." -Lily Tomlin
Let's walk together towards a better future. I offer workshops, spiritual direction, and retreats focused on forgiveness to help you or your community carve out time for this important work and accompany you as you take the first step.
Desmond and Mpho Tutu van Furth outline the following path in The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path to Healing Ourselves and Our World:
• Telling the story
• Naming the hurt
• Granting forgiveness (Telling a new story)
• Renewing or releasing the relationship
I have walked this path myself and with others and experienced lasting healing. The work of forgiveness is never finished, but as we mature in this practice, we become more willing to take the first step when we sense that forgiveness is required and by doing so we free ourselves and the world.
