In this podcast, Jack Kornfield and Trudy Goodman discuss the art and heart of forgiveness, and how forgiveness is an expression of what it means to live with loving awareness.

“It’s really an act of mercy of your heart to say, ‘Alright, I can do this, I can forgive in some way.’ And a lot of it is forgiving of yourself; we’re so hard on ourselves, and we define our lives by our worst moment—as if that’s really the truth.”—Jack

“When you sit down to be with yourself and meditate, maybe you aren’t going to just follow your breath that day, maybe you’re going to radiate some compassion to yourself or to somebody else, maybe that’s what’s called for. I like to begin this practice with forgiving ourselves, because without that, it’s really hard to genuinely forgive anybody else.”–Trudy
