Forgiveness: The Key to Happiness

Love can heal the world and forgiveness is the catalyst to make it happen. When anyone gives up all grievances, the path is open to find real peace and happiness. In this class, we will discuss inspirational stories of the miracles of personal healing that radical forgiveness can produce and why forgiveness is so important for our own well-being, as well as for others. The steps of actually performing forgiveness will be presented and discussed. Following these steps outside the classroom can release grievances and heal relationships. This presentation of forgiveness is psychologically based and is not focused on any particular religious view of forgiveness, so no religious or faith-based view of forgiveness is needed to understand and practice it.
