The Freedom of Forgiveness

Saturday, November 25th - 10am-3pm

with Rob Codling

"If you think you're enlightened, go home for the weekend."  Ram Dass

While the holiday season can be a time of joy and togetherness for some people, for others this time of year brings up stress, resentment, and upset.

At this unique workshop, experienced teacher Rob Codling will explore the meaning of forgiveness and its power as a practice to free ourselves from difficult feelings about those we love and our past struggles.  We'll explore what it means to let go, to understand true bravery and strength, and learn to use gentleness and kindness to uncover our true nature of lovingness and receptivity.

This event will included guided forgiveness and lovingkindness meditation, discussion, lecture, and Q&A. Beginners are welcome. Chairs and cushions will be provided.

IDP offers its events on a sliding scale basis so that everyone can attend, regardless of financial means. This requires that you pay the highest rate you can reasonably afford. If you are a Monthly Member, we suggest you select the middle rate. 
Scholarship information is available at the bottom of this page.
Rob Codling is a native New Yorker (fu-get-da-bout-it), whose path towards awakening has taken him around the world for the past 15 years, to study in a variety of wisdom traditions ranging from Tibetan Buddhism, to Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung, to the indigenous wisdom of the Americas. He is a a graduate of the 2015 IDP Yearlong Meditation Teacher Training Program and holds a master's degree in Archetypal Cosmology and Conscious Evolution from the Graduate Institute. His practice focuses on using meditation as a powerful vehicle in being kind and gentle towards ourselves. He finds extreme hope in the notion that we can always begin again and is deeply grateful to teachers and his meditation practice for continually reminding him of this.
