Special Music by Job Meiller

Our emotional wounds, our unresolved anger and our sense of loss may often trap and continue hurt us. Unless we acknowledge and process those feelings, we will never be free. The key to that freedom is forgiveness. I draw from various spiritual traditions to point to possible paths to help free ourselves.
