Specialized Workshops

  • 1. Freedom from Resentment: The Art of Forgiveness is designed for anyone who struggles with a resentment. It has proven effective for seniors, church groups, community organizations, those in recovery, and the incarcerated or recently released. This is a program I offer in either a 4 or 7-week interactive workshop.  There is a lot of writing, sharing, and dialoguing that occurs. 
    • This course was/is offered at the College of Marin in Kentfield, California, for 2019, 2020
    • In April, 2017, I presented the program at San Quentin State Prison as part of their Empowerment Re-entry Program. It was a rich experience to hear and see the changes in the men’s words and attitudes because of what they were learning in their course; I deepened their knowledge. A few forgave others. A large portion of the men are active in twelve step programs and they found my information complemented what they learn in recovery.
    • One workshop participant at another workshop said, “It’s like I was lost in a dark forest and your workshop was the flashlight.”
  • 2. Empowerment Through Forgiveness of Self and Others  is a more intensive look at how to forgive another, what the benefits are and what drawbacks exist when you don’t forgive. It deals with guilt and shame, so you can resolve your self-resentment.
