August Immersion: Beyond Forgiveness - Opening to True Healing


True Healing transcends the egoic need for forgiveness. True Healing addresses the deeper, more primal wound of the ego – that of separation. While forgiveness presupposes and reinforces our sense of separation, True Healing opens us to our own Essential Nature and Greater Oneness.  

Starting Saturday, August 14, from 3:00 - 5:30pm PDT  

Join Tovah and Ted in exploring the true nature of the Healing Journey needed to open more fully to our Spiritual Identity.  

This month of Elul is a period of preparation for the High Holy Days. It is a time of self-reflection on the year past and an opportunity for deeper spiritual commitment in the year to come. Traditionally, Elul is also a time of forgiveness - forgiving others, forgiving self, and asking for forgiveness.  

Through teachings, discussions, meditations, and spiritual practices, we discover the consequences of the Forgiveness model and explore what is truly needed for our spiritual unfolding: 

  • the three levels of forgiveness – forgiving, letting go, and healing 
  • the ways that forgiveness reinforces our sense of egoic identity and separateness 
  • the nature of True Healing the deep wound of our perceived separateness 
  • the process of transcending forgiveness to a greater sense of Oneness 

This is the final monthly immersion in our 8-month Spiral of Personal and Spiritual Transformation. Each month offers specific teachings and practices to help us realize the essential nature of our being, as well as opportunities for deeper conversation and experience. This sacred Spiral is modeled on the spiritual wisdom contained within the ancient Exodus story, and the commitment to journey from ego-enslavement, through the Wilderness, to touching Enlightenment.
