“Letting Go of Regrets: The Journey to Forgiveness and Healing”
Regrets are inevitable in life; holding onto them is not. This workshop is for individuals who want to let go of burdensome regrets or to assist others in doing so. Letting go of regrets is fundamentally about forgiveness, a process that is widely misunderstood. At the completion of this workshop attendees will have a better understanding of: the seven categories of regret, why we hold onto regrets, toxic thought patterns that perpetuate regrets, the physical and psychological rewards of letting go of regrets, eight myths of forgiveness, spiritual and psychological tools for letting go of regret and forgiving, and ten steps for letting go of regret and finding forgiveness.
Presented by Hamilton Beazley, Ph.D.
