Charles Holt Workshop “Beyond Forgiveness: Living a Life of Letting Go”
Sunday, February 26th | 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
$20 Love Offering
Charles Holt brings you the seldom recognized gift of humanity, reminding you of your own forgiving spirit. With every opportunity to step further into our greater good and life-journey is the likelihood that something from our past will resurface. In most cases, these events and memories have been hanging around in our minds for long periods of time… years even.
