Podcast Episode 14 The Relentless Invitation To Go Within

There is so much grit in the practice of self-forgiveness.

Self-forgiveness is courageous work that requires us to answer the call to go within and reckon with the parts of ourselves that might feel ugly, unloveable and unworthy.

Listen as Monica and Andrea explore and model how to practice self-forgiveness and what to do when we have hurt someone intentionally or unintentionally. Learn why the practice of self-forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and others.

Links Mentioned:

 "Forgiving means not pushing anyone, or any part of our own being, out of our heart. As we bring a full, compassionate presence to the wounds that we’ve been protecting, we release the armoring of hatred and blame that has been imprisoning our heart. We cannot will this process of forgiveness, but we can be willing. It is a challenging and courageous life practice that frees us to love without holding back." - Tara Brach
