Course Navigation

Forgiveness is a powerful practice of healing.

This one-day online retreat suggests the practice of forgiveness as a powerful way to recover from harm, reducing the impact of the difficult things that happen. Forgiveness helps us heal and move on.

Forgiveness practice:

  • helps us understand and let go of the past hurts we’re holding.
  • shows us the damage we can do to ourselves long after the harm that we experienced.
  • helps us build healthier relationships.
  • leads to a reduction in depression and anxiety.
  • strengthens self-esteem.
  • has many health benefits – lowered blood pressure and improved heart health among others.


Look forward to a supportive and safe community of learners led by Senior Teacher and Mindfulness Northwest Executive Director Tim Burnett in this innovative retreat day exploring forgiveness. The day will include meditations, exercises, discussion, and exploration around forgiveness in a safe space. A helpful info packet will be provided to support your continuing practice.
