The Value of Surrender and Forgiveness

Giving In and Getting Whole

Both surrender and forgiveness are powerful tools with which we can change ourselves and change our lives. Their virtues have been recognized through the ages and all the religious traditions of the world have sung their praises. However, as with all powerful tools, they must be used skillfully if they are to be effective. In this workshop, therefore, we will explore the value of surrender, the value of forgiveness, and how they can best be applied in our day-to-day lives.

A major part of discovering how to use them effectively is discerning when each is appropriate and how to apply them in a healthy and balanced way.
