Breath of Compassion: Forgiveness Retreat with Rose Kress
April 16 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$25
Breath of Compassion: The Art of Forgiveness
Forgiveness is the ultimate act of compassion. It means that we chose to let go of anger and resentment. Forgiveness does not absolve others of wrongdoing, nor does it need to be extended towards another for healing to occur. The most powerful act of forgiveness is when we offer it to ourselves. We might be carrying anger and resentment towards ourselves for “allowing” ourselves to get hurt.
The greatest gift we can give someone else is unconditional listening; the greatest gift we can give ourselves is unconditional.
Yoga is the ultimate practice of unconditional listening. The more we listen to our bodies and our feelings, the more we release the hardness we have built around our hearts for protection. During this retreat, we will learn about the aspects of forgiveness, how to listen to ourselves, and the process of releasing. We’ll practice:
- Breath of Compassion
- The practice of kindness in yoga
- Loving kindness meditation
- Mantra for peace and compassion
- A yoga practice focused on softening
This retreat comes with a manual and a recording of the session, so you can practice again and again. There is also an essential oil option for those that wish to enhance their experience during the workshop and after.
