Forgiving Our Fathers To Free Ourselves

When we are held prisoner by the ‘resentment’, the pain, the shame, anger, confusion, doubt or the sense
of betrayal – our present life just cannot be fully lived.

The unwelcome inheritance we carry from the past,
function to close our hearts and thereby narrow our world. Yet ‘Forgiveness’ does not mean condoning a
harmful action, or denying an injustice done. Forgiveness should never be confused with being passive toward violation or abuse.

This Daylong is suitable for all levels of meditation experience. Beginners are very welcome !

Guided sitting instruction, Practice-techniques, Dharma-talks that help us explore life-related themes,
new awakening-approaches, and lively Q & A discussion – and there’s lots of welcome noble-silence too.

BRING: water bottle, notebook, pen, light blanket/shawl, easy on-off shoes and non-binding clothes.

Cost: $50 plus a chance to offer Dana to the teacher – No one is ever turned away for lesser or lack of funds – write or call for scholarship and/or work-study info:
323.665.4300.

Akasa Levi – an American filmmaker and student of the Gurdjief ‘Work’ that went to live in Asia for
the full decade of the 1970’s to be directly with the last living spiritual teachers of the pre-global era.
He was mentored by Lama Thubten Yeshe & Zopa Rinpoche at Kopan, Nepal – Munindra & Goenka
in Bodhgaya, India – and by Nisargadatta Maharaj in Bombay. Akasa was a forest bhikkhu monk
for six years in Sri Lanka – trained and ordained into the Theravada monastic order by the revered
Bhante Ananda Maitreya and Kassapa Mahathera. Now 70, he guides Vipassana insight meditation
at The Laughing Buddha Sangha in Santa Monica – www.DharmaHere.blogspot.com – and offers
buddhist-based counseling-therapy and mindful-life coaching. Akasa is known for his spontaneity,
ready warmth and wry unpredictable humor.
” Holding onto resentment is letting someone else punish us. The “Act of Forgiveness†is an act of mercy to yourself !”
