Event Description: For thousands of years people from every religion have studied and practiced forgiveness as part of their personal lives. Yet, for many of us, forgiveness remains a misunderstood and misapplied concept. Recent scientific studies support the view that forgiveness is good for us and promotes phycological and emotional wellbeing. This workshop will explore the process of forgiveness with attention to psycho-spiritual dynamics and how they relate to our lives.
In this workshop we looked at:
*What forgiveness is, what forgiveness is not, and why forgiveness is a necessary part of being human.
*The process of forgiveness and the obstacles encountered in each of the stages of forgiveness.
*How forgiveness brings about the deep transformation of our basic beliefs about self, the world and our concept of God.
* Practical applications relevant in clinical and pastoral settings-where forgiveness often is the issue underlying many psycho-spiritual disorders.

Event description: Studies have shown that having a positive relationship to anger is essential for both mental and physical wellness. Yet many of us suffer from misconceptions about anger which often results in our inability to channel and express this sacred emotion in ways that benefit us and others.
In this all day workshop we discussed how anger is:
*A messenger telling us that something is wrong.
*A powerful source of energy.
*A response to pain and necessary for survival.
*A secondary, but sacred emotion.
You learn how to identify your particular anger style and the necessary tools for creating positive change in your life.
