This 10 minute forgiveness meditation script is designed to bring you into the heart space to forgive or ask for forgiveness. Originally a meditation led by Tara Brach, it will bring you into radical acceptance for yourself and others. This practice is perfect for anyone having a hard time forgiving themselves or someone else. It is helpful when dealing with feelings of anger and resentment towards someone who may have wronged you. This meditation will help address those negative feelings, recognize them, and let them go so we may come back to radical love for not only ourselves but others as well. So grab your cushion and lets begin.
