This is an introduction to forgiveness meditation and how to use it as part of a personal Life Review. When we are willing to forgive, these types of meditations can be tools to work on forgiving both others and ourselves for actions taken in situations which occurred recently, in distant past or immediate present. Participants will briefly discuss the process of a Life Review and how frequently situations are identified in the review in which the Reviewer has “unfinished business” and would like to forgive another or themselves.
The class will hear samples of different kinds of forgiveness meditation that are easily accessible on-line. The session will include a demonstration of a several forgiveness meditation sequences by the instructor and an opportunity for a brief silent practice exercise.
Between session 1 and 2. participants will get an assignment to review a segment of their current lifetimes and identify several people they would like to forgive.
Become familiar with meditation which is focused on forgiveness. Understand more about their own definition of "forgiving" and how that fits with different kinds of forgiveness meditation. Have an opportunity to hear and try a forgiveness meditation themselves. Find out how including this type of meditation may fit into their practice and may benefit them, including decreased anger, and increased patience. Become familiar with the basics of structured life review and how doing one may benefit them.

Forgiveness in your Life Review
ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Robert Robinson has been a student of metaphysics since the 1970's and a meditator for over 30 years. He has received instruction in Ananda Marga meditation, Transcendental Meditation and Tibetan meditation; and has been practicing a form of Forgiveness Meditation for over a year. Robert's parents were both Parastudy members in the '60s so he grew up with discussions of reincarnation, the spiritual and the paranormal around me.

Robert is an experienced instructor and facilitator and has taught workshops on communications and technical skills for his employers.
