Tim and Tuere teaching at UFM

Forgiveness Ceremony (In-Person & Online)

September 18, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT

It may seem like a conundrum to hold a forgiveness ceremony amid everything going on in the world right now, but right now is where forgiveness belongs. Spiritual forgiveness is a necessary part of beginning again. It is the foundation for renewing our faith and realigning us with our values/practice. In addition, ceremony restores our soul. It provides the space to include everything on the path. In this context, there is no better time to hold a forgiveness ceremony than right now.

On this night, Tim and Tuere will be offering their annual forgiveness ceremony. Come join us in person or online as we connect with one another through the Dharma, bowing and chanting.
