Module 5 – The Heart of Forgiveness in Troubled Times with Vince Cullen

  • “How do we love our enemies? First, we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.”– Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Live Zoom Session – Tuesday, August 13, 12:00 Noon – 1:00 PM PT


  • If we wish to live and die with a peaceful heart, forgiveness is an essential practice. It enables the healing of our own wounds and broken hearts. Vince will explore ancient and timeless universal precepts not as rules or commandments but as gifts we offer to ourselves and others. He will teach meditations that cultivate an ongoing forgiveness practice for everyone, regardless of religious, spiritual or philosophical affiliation.
  • Learning Objectives:
    • Describe through the lens of the Five Precepts how harm is caused and how it can be avoided in the future.
