About the event
Guilt from the past and anxiety for the future can inhibit our full presence in the now. Learning to understand and accept our human frailties with observation and correction but without judgment can be a liberating awakening to sustainable happiness in the present. It begins with restructuring our perception and attitude toward the concept of "mistakes" - on the part of ourselves or others. Stories of transformative experiences and lessons - human and canine - will be shared.
