It's been said that holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Study after study shows that one of the keys to longevity and good health is developing a habit of forgiveness and letting go of past hurts. It's hard work, but it's the kindest thing you can do for yourself -- and for others. Nobel Peace Prize-winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Chair of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the global icon of forgiveness, partnered with his daughter, the Reverend Mpho Tutu, to write a manual on the art of forgiveness, The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World. Now Mpho Tutu comes to New York to give you the instructions on how to forgive, as well as scientific and moral reasons for doing so. She'll explain the universal four-step process of forgiveness that everyone can apply to their life, no matter how large or small the hurt. She'll affirm that healing does not lie in anger, it lies in empathy and love, knowing that by pardoning others we ultimately heal ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally. Learn More
Are you one of those people who have been looking for love in all the wrong places? Or perhaps you are someone who has found love, only to find that it fizzles out faster than a lit match in the spring rain? Have you genuinely tried your best to leave behind your pattern of unfulfilling relationships, only to find that you keep on going back to them, again and again?
Dr. Srini Pillay will spend an evening with us to unravel the mysteries of love and help us make wiser more informed choices about the loving relationships in our lives. He will address the following questions with cutting-edge scientific answers:
1.Why do so many people look for love in all the wrong places? What can you do about this?
2.Why you end up doing all the wrong things in love despite your best intentions? How can you change this?
3.Why does loving someone else require that you love yourself first? How can you achieve without the hype of a contemporary tabloid?
4.Why do you repeat your destructive patterns of falling in love? How can you escape these patterns?
5.Why does love become so boring so quickly? What can you do to lead a more sustainable fulfilling romantic life?
Dr. Pillay will also explain in everyday language how our fears complicate finding and forming loving relationships that last. By helping us understand the science of love, Dr. Pillay will help us move through the roadblocks that prevent us from living a satisfying, fulfilling and magical life.
"The secret to living life successfully is to recognize that you can be different from what is happening to you."--Srinivasan S. Pillay
