β€œTo forgive is to set a prisoner free and find that the prisoner is yourself.”
– Azim Khamisa

The Open Heart Series explores how a compassionate spirit coupled with nonviolent communication principles can transform our lives. These experiential training have defined structures for the mind, feelings exploration for the heart, and kinesthetic activities for the body.

This integration of mind, heart, and body, held in compassionate awareness, is designed to produce a sense of wholeness where we are able to welcome who we are unconditionally and experience our totality. We then recognize our kinship with others; our relationships and quality of life deepens, and aliveness burns brightly within the present moment.

Forgiveness and Gratitude:
Embracing your wounds with compassion.

Learn how to accept and honor yourself as you are right now.
Transform suffering into wisdom.
Learn how to relax and release.

How often do we severely criticize ourselves for things that we would be quick to forgive in others? How much time and energy do we spend reminding ourselves of times we were "wronged", and then find ourselves in the midst of an emotional storm? How would our world change if we brought tenderness to such experiences?

Wounds cry out for our attention. When we hold them in acceptance and compassion we encourage them to reveal how they are trying to protect and serve us, how they yearn to contribute to our being. As we understand and honor that contribution, we invite healing.

Once our wounds know we understand them, they are no longer wounds. They may still hold intensity, yet we experience that intensity as sacred rather than as suffering. Even in the midst of intensity, we feel whole, complete, and accepted just as we are. Gratitude becomes our steady companion and we live a joyful existence.
