About The Event
Empowerment Weekend London
Kairos Centre, Richmond Park, London 2nd - 4th November 2018
Explore the limitless power of forgiveness for good mental health.
We are delighted to host our 2nd annual forgiveness retreat in an amazing setting overlooking Richmond Park.
Enjoy what has been described as a life-changing experience, and the only one of it’s kind in the country. Through the use of Jack Kornfield’s Buddhist psychology and guided meditations and Dr Enwright’s PhD research on the forgiveness model, we have fused a weekend of mindfulness, and psychological model of forgiveness.
The long-lasting effects of anger and resentfulness can prevent us from living a full life; and we can pass this trauma on to families and communities. The American Psychological Society has published on the benefits of the forgiveness model and its implications for mental health. The American Psychological Society and BPS recognize the value of the forgiveness process – see link below for a recent publication.
The Empowerment Weekend is ideal for mental health practitioners, counsellors and psychotherapists and mindfulness teachers to gain a different approach to working with suffering and trauma, and a new working model. But we welcome people who feel drawn to learn and benefit from this opportunity.
The Empowerment Weekend will begin with a sound bath with gongs, which is an energetic loosening and balancing of stored energy in the body. Throughout the weekend there will be meditation, presentations, discussions, reflection, enquiry, understanding and practical sessions defining forgiveness and working through this process. There will time for reflection, walks and rest.
We welcome people from all walks of life wanting to learn and engage with this model, including those who have been dealing with childhood abuse and/or neglect, divorce or other life-changing situations where they have felt that their lives have been impacted or put on hold by a feeling of deadlock and of ‘no alternatives’; and practitioners who would like to learn how to work with this model.
