You are invited to think of a scenario where you have felt hurt or wronged in preparation for the evening. We will guide you through a 5-stage process to let go your pain, anger and blame, awaken repeating patterns and find peace and healing through surrender to a hHigher Power. WE will complete the process with a meditation and forgiveness ritual. Please bring a journal or notebook and pen. All sessions are offered by free-will donation and charitable tax receipts are offered
Rev. Wayne and Marilyn Myhre will be leading a discussion group on a book RETURN TO LOVE: Reflections on the Principals of “A Course in Miracles” by Marianne Williamson.
