Some of the 102 folks who showed up for our first meeting in
our new space!
Earlier this year, when Larry was at IMS,
he spoke with Executive Director, Linda
Spink about the importance of forgiveness
in our lives.
In their conversation, he described a forgiveness practice
that helps us release the patterns of our suffering, and
become more compassionately connected to the world
