Ever have an issue forgiving someone who “did you wrong.” Did you hold a grudge or try to get even? We’re often told to forgive and forget when harm is done to us, yet that’s easier said than done.
Joining Host Jim Falk to talk about the art and science of forgiveness are, Dr. Frederic Luskin, the founder and director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Projects and a professor at the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology. He is the author of Forgive for Good and Forgive for Love.
Also, with us is Molly Biehl (@mollybiehl5916) whose older sister, Amy, a Stanford University student, and Fulbright Scholar, was dragged out of her car and brutally killed in a township outside of Cape Town, South Africa in August of 1993. Amy was 26.
Molly is the author of You’ve Got This, where she shares her path to forgiveness.
What is forgiveness? Why do we find forgiveness so challenging? How does harboring anger and resentment affect one’s health? And what are the benefits of forgiveness?
Our guests say, there is a way to move forward through forgiveness, however difficult that may be. Join us to learn more.
