Cultivating Compassion, Forgiveness, and Gratitude
with Fred Luskin, PhD
August 11-16, 2013, Zephyr Point Conference Center, Zephyr Cove, NV
As Companions on the Inner Way, we'll be offered tools and guided practices for cultivating compassion, forgiveness and gratitude-compassion offered to self and others; forgiveness for interpersonal/intrapersonal healing; gratitude in response to experiences of beauty, truth, relationship, and knowledge. Our presenter Dr. Fred Luskin's research shows that these practices encourage the development of physical and emotional well-being, and are foundational for the spiritual life. Cultivating and savoring the experiences of joy and happiness will be the underlying motivation of this retreat.
Frederic Luskin, Ph.D. is the Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Projects, Director of Wellness Education at Stanford and a Professor of Clinical Psychology at Sofia University. He has completed ten successful national and international research projects on forgiveness, including work with those who lost family members in the violence in Northern Ireland, as well as financial advisors after the stock market crash in 2000. Dr. Luskin is the author of Forgive For Good, Forgive For Love, and, with Dr. Kenneth Pelletier, Stress Free For Good.
