OUCH! We say this when our bodies are injured. When we stub our toe or when someone runs over our foot with a shopping cart in the store. We rarely ever use this simple word to exclaim when our heart is wounded, our feelings hurt, or our life altered by a painful experience.
Yet, recognizing the “ouch” is the first step in knowing that you are hurt and moving toward forgiving the other or yourself who caused the ouch. Forgiveness is the process of changing our feelings and reaction to an offense by letting go of the anger, sadness, and other inhibiting emotions associated with the ouch so we can move on. Forgiveness doesn’t excuse bad behavior, forgiveness prevents that behavior from holding us back.
Please join us on Saturday November 21, 2015 from 9:00-3:00 at Waterloo Village in Byram Twp. NJ as we explore forgiveness and the inner freedom, as we go deep, and inhale the love we feel when we are healed of our ouch! Please register at email@example.com.
People of all ages and religious beliefs are welcome. Light breakfast and vegetarian lunch will be provided. An offering of $25 for the retreat is requested, the net proceeds will be donated to “A Future with Hope.”
