‘Forgiveness’ a talk by Gelong Thubten

Thubten will be discussing how to develop our capacity to learn forgiveness.

How meditation and mindfulness can develop our capacity to learn forgiveness. Holding on to resentment and anger will harm our minds and bring suffering to ourselves and others. Finding freedom through compassion and forgiveness can bring about a deep release, as well as heal relationships and create peace within the mind and society at large.
