Forgiveness

Sunday, August 28, 1:00 pm
In-Person in the Chochmat Halev Courtyard

As the Days of Awe approach, we open ourselves to the sacred qualities of s’lichot (Forgiveness) and rachamim (Compassion). In this experiential workshop, we will learn life-long skills of forgiveness and explore how and why learning to forgive helps us hurt less, experience less anger, feel less stress, and suffer less depression. These ground-breaking methods will give us insight into the spiritual healing powers and medical benefits of forgiveness and prepare us to enter the Days of Awe with greater peace, love, and compassion. 

Fred Luskin, Ph.D is an American psychologist, professor, and author. He serves as Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects, an ongoing series of workshops and research projects that investigate the effectiveness of his forgiveness methods on a variety of populations, including people who suffered from the violence in Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone, as well as the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. He has also helped Israeli and Palestianian students have conversations about forgiveness and compassion as healing tools.

Fred is the author of Forgive for Good: A Proven Prescription for Health and Happiness and Stress Free for Good: Ten Proven Life Skills for Health and Happiness. He is also an international speaker, offering workshops, TED talks, and consultations.  His overarching purpose is to help people derive the spiritual, emotional and medical benefits of forgiveness, compassion and stress-reduction methods.
