Forgiveness

A means for healing internal splits

Half-day Online Meditation Workshop
  • Date: Sunday, 05 September 2021
  • Instructor: Cedric Reeves
  • Cost: Sliding scale

Join us for this half-day event in which we will use visualization exercises to identify and repattern our grievances and resentments, moving instead towards wholeness, ease, integration and "conformity with the ways things are”.

In this workshop we will be using a forgiveness meditation technique with the focus on forgiveness of self and other. Through these guided forgiveness meditations we will heal the inner schisms and splits of our psyches and move towards wholeness, ease, integration and 'conformity with the ways things are'.

Workshop Overview

This program is suitable for beginners in meditation and healing work.

There will be a few brief lectures on forgiveness, and Q&A. However, the focus of the workshop will be experiential. We will spend 50% to 65% on forgiveness meditations and exercises.

During the exercises, we’ll focus on both processing and forgiving others and ourselves. We’ll develop and deepen compassion towards self and other. Importantly, we’ll give ourselves full permission to feel our suffering, validating any difficult emotions. We’ll also engage in perspective taking exercises which will help us release ourselves from blame and release others from blame when we are ready to do so – never rushing the process! Moreover, we’ll see how that which we reject in others we tend to reject in ourselves and we’ll work towards healing this psychic-split.

The material on this course has been influenced by Bruce Ecker’s book “Unlocking the Emotional Brain”: “Neuroscience research since 2004 has shown that the brain has a key to locked synapses: a type of neuro-plasticity known as memory reconsolidation, which, when launched by a certain series of experiences, actually unlocks the synapses of a target emotional learning, allowing it to be not merely overridden but actually nullified and deleted by new learning.

I hope that we’ll develop a sense of community in the workshop. As part of signing up you’ll be invited to the Attachment Repair Slack Group.

We will send out recordings to everyone who signs up. But it is highly recommended to attend live because we will be pairing up participants to do dyad-work.

Miscellaneous Notes

There will be time for Q&A and spot coaching.

We will be doing deep work. For that reason please feel free to take a break at any point.

    Hello Cedric,

    I sent my donation for Sunday’s 2:30-5:00 pm session. Is there a registration form I need to fill out to receive the zoom link for the session?

    Thanks,
    Hana

    1. Hi Hana,

    Hello Cedric. I just found your YT channel Attachment Repair last week and have already benefitted from two of the sessions, this last one on forgiveness and the emotional repatterning meditation. I would like to learn much more. Please put me on any newsletter list so I can sign up for more of these sessions and be able to ask some questions live. (on Youtube my identity is “Pa” which I did purposely to avoid any unwanted attention from stalkers.)

    1. Hi Patricia. Wonderful to hear you benefited from the meditations – we’ve added you to the newsletter. You should get an email that you will have to confirm
