ONLINE: Forgiveness – A Workshop Circle
October 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
In our search for love, in our search for meaning, in our search for spiritual growth and joy, we will be brought into contact with others. Our expectations in relationships is for harmony and understanding; and yet that is not always the outcome.
One lesson that comes up for most of us in life is the need and opportunity to offer forgiveness – both of others and of ourselves. It’s about being misunderstood, being betrayed, being deeply hurt, being revealed in all our less than stellar traits. There is, of course, a sunnier side. Our strengths have been well earned, our hearts are open, our expectations may be positive, and still, there is more to clear.
This workshop with Jamuna Snitkin and Kristy Law will explore this subject from the depths of Yogananda’s teachings, the wisdom of the poets, the stories voiced from spiritual traditions through the ages, and – as we sit in a circle – your voice as well.
Of her background, Jamuna writes: “In college I specialized in art history and later received a degree in library science. I showed up initially at Ananda Village in 1972. In 1980 served with my husband Vasudeva, for 2 decades plus, through the Palo Alto Sangha as co-manager, of East West Bookshop. I have been serving through Ananda Washington as minister, teacher, Lightbearer and artist since 1994.”
Kristy Law is an Ananda Bothell sangha member and a floral and landscape designer. She has an abiding interest in the layers of forgiveness that can happen between people, within oneself, and through the grace of God, and in exploring the relationship between nature and healing.
