Forgiveness liberates the soul.
~ Nelson Mandela

In today’s climate, we are experiencing unfortunate amounts of anger, hate, and self-loathing. As a collective humanity, we have spent the past almost two years living in unprecedented times. It’s been overwhelming for most to figure out how to successfully find a new normal. This imbalance has caused pain throughout the world. Lives are falling apart at faster rates than ever before.

However, as a collective humanity, we know there is hope for a better tomorrow. To make that a reality, we must begin our journey of healing and forgiveness today. There are steps we can take toward this life. We can come together to begin
the process immediately. Focusing on self-love and self-care play a major role on this healing journey.

During this two-part program, be guided toward a life of forgiveness and healing through journaling, conversations, and contemplative prayer and meditation.
