Forgiveness: Letting Go and Moving On

01:00 pm to 03:30 pm
Kadampa Meditation Center Bloomington 406 S. Walnut St. Bloomington, IN 47401
http://www.meditationinbloomington.org

For most of us, it seems almost impossible to go through life without feeling harmed by others, or without turning against ourselves for past mistakes. However, life is too short and our relationships are too valuable to hold onto anger forever. In this half-day course, we will learn about the deep healing and freedom that is possible through the power of forgiveness of ourself and others. We will explore Buddha’s practical methods for learning how to let go of anger and resentment and how to move forward to more healthy, loving relationships.

This half-day course consists of two hour-long sessions with a break in between, including light refreshments. Each session includes a guided meditation and a talk. Everyone is welcome.

Dedication of Hack’s Arch

03:00 pm to 04:00 pm
Will Detmer Park
http://www.facebook.com/MCHPB

Hack’s Arch was built by Merrill E. “Hack” Hacker at his home at 2714 W. Vernal Pike beginning in 1940. Prior to demolition of the house due to I-69, the Monroe County Historic Preservation Board of Review in partnership with the Monroe County Parks and Recreation Department sought to save the arch. This project creates a legacy for the future. It draws upon the creative skill of an ordinary and outstanding resident of Monroe County who loved his family and lived a good, decent, plain life. He built the arch from quarry scraps and in interviews in 1998, described how he accomplished the work and lived his life. The arch welcomed his neighbors to his house and now will welcome visitors to the Will Detmer Park for years to come. All are invited to attend the dedication and meet Hack’s family. This event has been endorsed as an official Monroe County/City of Bloomington Bicentennial event.
