Course Details

Please join us for a special 6 week course exploring the art of forgiveness with Senior Mindfulness and Buddhist Compassion Teacher, Heather Prete. All of us wish to let go of the ties that bind us to resentment, self blame, victim mind, and that incomprehensible feeling of stuckness that arises when we’re caught in the painful memories of the past. There is a way to heal even from the depths of adversity. That healing provides the invaluable gift of forgiving ourselves and others.

Who is this for?

  • Anyone interested in forgiveness practices - suitable for experienced practitioners as well as those new to practice
  • Those who wish to bring compassion into their work, such as clinicians, mental health professionals, coaches, teachers, etc.
  • Those who wish to transform difficult emotional states, including chronic emotional conditions such as frequent anxiety or depression
  • Those who wish to transform the “inner critic” and develop a relationship with the Self that embodies acceptance and care

What you'll learn

  • We will explore the paths set out in Tibetan Buddhism and the teaching of the Order of Interbeing with Tich Nhaht Hahn. We will also walk through the 4-fold path of forgiveness offered to us by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu.
  • Learn the steps to:
    • Decrease suffering before we are ready to forgive
    • Care for the wounds that block our heart
    • The 4 fold path to forgiveness Tutu
    • Traditional Buddhist forgiveness practices
    • Self Compassion
    • Giving and Receiving (Tonglen)
    • Freedom!

How it works

  • Join us for 9 hours of online instruction
  • There will be weekly journaling and writing assignments. Please bring something to write notes with during class.
  • You will also be given weekly meditations to complement the teachings

We can plant something new, in the burnt ground and in time we will harvest a new story of who we are." - Mpho Tutu

"Forgiveness is not the first step on the path....
We begin with the intention and desire to break free from the chains that hold our heart hostage.... That intention brings us to understand the healing needed before we can forgive. Intention is our first step, but it is not forgiveness itself."
