What does it mean to truly forgive another person? And, do we all forgive in the same way? Are we all just doing the best we can with what we have been given? Host, Mike Domitrz, asks CAST members Rick Clemons, Dr. Jenn, and Barry Moniak to share their thoughts on how they use mindfulness to navigate through potentially uncomfortable situations when seeing the best in another person is more cloudy than clear. 

 

The quote that Inspired this week’s show is "See with the heart so that what is invisible to the eye becomes visible as the living magic of reality. Seeing one drop of water can be seeing all water. See how things display their harmony and their chaos at the same time. We are never limited by beauty alone but we appreciate all sides of reality properly.” — from the book Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa.
