A gateway to peace & connection
28 September - 4 October 2013
That which un-does us, embraced with love is our greatest ally.
During the event, One Spirit Interfaith Foundation will hold a special forgiveness ceremony and have created and adapted a set of prayers especially for this. You can read and download these payers here.
Most of us long to let go and move on, but even knowing that it is in our best interests, we struggle to do this. What would our inner and outer worlds look like if we opened our hearts to a deep acceptance of 'what is', as opposed to what we and others think 'should be'?
Seeing forgiveness as a means to undo much of the personal suffering that keeps us stuck, and self-forgiveness as a vital practice for healthy and happy living, we desire to hold a space with conference participants in which to examine questions such as:
- Forgiveness – what is it, and importantly, what is it not?
- Why is it so difficult?
- The role of self forgiveness
- Why does revenge play so big a part in our lives?
- What practical tools can help us move on?
- What can we learn from people who have forgiven against all the odds?
- How would our lives be different if we committed ourselves to letting go of all our hurts?
- Where do we ourselves need forgiveness? Can we face and accept that we have betrayed/hurt as well as have been hurt/betrayed?
Our vision is for the week to be co-created with participants, be experiential and provide a mixture of collaborative methods, input from speakers, live mediation, workshops, ritual and time devoted to practical application. We intend to begin from a place of not knowing and a willingness to have some of our deepest assumptions about ourselves and others questioned.
We warmly welcome you join us for this conference and
to participate in a collaborative inquiry with us.

Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there.
