Three of the most destructive words to our ability to thrive are Coulda, Woulda, and Shoulda. How many times have we felt guilt, regret, and shame over our actions? I know that, when I started a deliberate forgiveness practice, it was *so* much easier to forgive others their transgressions than to forgive myself, for I *knew* how much I'd screwed up. But as long as we carry that guilt, we are not only chaining ourselves to our past, but we are depriving the world of what we could become. In The Power of Self-Forgiveness, you will learn: * How self-forgiveness can open up your life * Why we judge ourselves so harshly * Specific ways that you can learn how to make peace with your past If you find yourself awake at night, helplessly obsessing over things you�ve done wrong, please join me, and I�ll help you make peace with yourself so you can live your life with confidence, gratitude, and love.
Why do we grieve? What prevents us from grieving, and how can *not* setting aside the time to mourn cripple our ability to fully embrace joy? Finally, what can we do to use our grief to deepen our connection with our hearts? The title of this course is inspired by Kahlil Gibran, who said (paraphrased): The deeper that sorrow carves into my soul, the greater my capacity for joy. If you are struggling with loss in your own life, please join me, and I would love to be able to help you move through your mourning and experience the richness of all Life's emotions.
Time is the great healer. No matter how difficult the circumstances that cross our path, it takes time for our emotions, minds and spirit to process what's happened. Do not let anything or anyone push you to move on too fast or get over it. We all heal in our way at our own speed. This healing cannot be rushed. It's normal and natural to feel overwhelmed, out of sorts and confused when a major change knocks on our door. Whether the loss of a loved one, the breakup of a long time relationship or other event that is emotionally devastating, we need time to heal and adjust. How long that takes depends on the individual. No two people have the same internal clock or the same wiring. Grief is something that we live with for the rest of our life. You don't ever get over it and you're not supposed to. There's nothing wrong with you. Nothing to be fixed. It is perfectly normal to grieve over someone we dearly love for life. Healing means that the initial intensity and frequency of what we are feeling subsides into something that is like a comfortable friend who walks with us. Join Don to learn what grief and other emotionally devastating events are really about, how we can heal from them and how we can best support others in their time of need.
