Question of the Month: What Did you Get Out of Azim’s Forgiveness Workshop?

“I’m glad I was receptive to the overture to attend this seminar. Azim’s power is both in his message and how his approach has helped him come to terms with the terrible tragedy he suffered. On reflection, I’m startled at how little there seems to be about the path to forgiveness. Yet when we hold someone in rage, as Azim says: “this is a bond that is more powerful than steel.”
Azim is right; rage has two victims: the person we hold the rage against, and ourselves. In rage, we are not free; we are stuck and can’t move. Neither can our oppressor. Why can’t we move? Because we don’t know-how.
Today’s seminar revealed the cost of our rage, and then gave us a system to deal with it. Each step is clear, precise, and direct. Acknowledging our oppressor’s frailties and failings is powerful because it strips so much of their power as demonizers. And the truth is always complex, as often our oppressors believe they are doing the best for us.
The meditation introduces a calmness and a focus, a clearing of the madness and hurtling chaos of our minds. Intentions matter, because if we’re not absolutely clear about our intentions, how will we have the focus, clarity, and strength to realize our journey of forgiveness?
Thank you, Azim for this meaningful seminar and day.”
