All life is about relationships. Creating an alive and honest connection with an intimate partner requires us to go deeply into our hearts and allow the courageous self to emerge. This journey to intimacy begins with the path of forgiveness. How does forgiveness lead to intimacy?
• It allows us to let go of anger, resentment, and grief
• It allows the agitated mind to move more deeply into the healing heart
• It resolves separation from ourselves and from others
• It allows us to complete unfinished business
