I’ve written about FORGIVENESS before right here on my blog in a blog post called ‘Pls Forgive Me’.
All self-improvement books talk about the importance of forgiveness for personal growth. The basic theory everywhere is that the more you forgive the happier (and healthier) you’ll be. And that theory is of course part of all religions.
But did anyone ever teach you HOW to forgive? How do you forgive someone when they’ve violated you? How do you forgive another person who has stolen from you, lied to you, or killed a relative of yours. How do you forgive a parent who has abused you, a business partner who stabbed you in the back, or a spouse who had an affair?
We all know it’s great to forgive. But HOW DO YOU DO IT?
I was dying to find out. So I got a book called FORGIVE FOR GOOD by Dr. Fred Luskin. I read it 2 years ago and it changed my life.
You can get the book here
I wrote about this book several times, but now I’m taking this a step further. I’m talking to the author himself, LIVE.
Let this episode show you how to elevate yourself with forgiveness. You won’t regret this.
Dr. Fred Luskin is the Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects, an ongoing series of workshops and research projects that investigate the effectiveness of his forgiveness methods on a variety of populations. The forgiveness project has successfully explored forgiveness therapy with people who suffered from the violence in Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone as well as the attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11.
In addition his work has been successfully applied and researched in corporate, medical, legal and religious settings. He currently serves as a Senior Consultant in Health Promotion at Stanford University and is a Professor at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.
He presents lectures, workshops, seminars and trainings on the importance, health benefits and training of forgiveness, stress management and emotional competence throughout the United States. He offers presentations and classes that range from one hour to ongoing weekly trainings.
