AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! “[The Gift of Forgiveness] will spark conversations across families, across friendships, at workplaces, everywhere.” –Maria Shriver A fresh, inspiring book on learning how to forgive, with firsthand stories from those who have learned to let go of resentment and find peace. "When we learn to embrace forgiveness, it opens us up to healing, hope, and a new world of possibility." --Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt Written with grace and understanding and based on more than twenty in-depth interviews and stories as well as personal reflections from Schwarzenegger Pratt herself, The Gift of Forgiveness is about one of the most difficult challenges in life--learning to forgive. Here, Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt shows us what we can learn from those who have struggled with forgiveness, some still struggling, and others who have been able to forgive what might seem truly unforgivable. The book features experiences from those well-known and unknown, including Elizabeth Smart, who learned to forgive her captors; Sue Klebold, whose son, Dylan, was one of the Columbine shooters, learning empathy and how to forgive herself; Chris Williams, who forgave the drunken teenager who killed his wife and child; and of course Schwarzenegger Pratt's own challenges and path to forgiveness in her own life. All provide different journeys to forgiveness and the process--sometimes slow and thorny, sometimes almost instantaneous--by which they learned to forgive and let go. The Gift of Forgiveness is a perfect blend of personal insights, powerful quotations, and hard-won wisdom for those seeking a way to live with greater acceptance, grace, and peace.

As a self-help guide or a counseling handout, this book deals with a serious problem of control. The individual knows forgiveness is needed, but the tyranny of past pain and current betrayal seems to place it outside of the ability for self-control. At the root of much depression is the inability to forgive oneself.

Do you long to “wipe the slate clean” and have a fresh start in life? Have you made mistakes you wish you could forget? Are you afraid God can’t forgive you for the errors you’ve made in your life? In his forty-one years of ministry, Larry Yeagley met many people who felt that God could not forgive them. “I discovered that a purely psychological approach to forgiveness didn’t work. Introducing people to the forgiving Father in heaven did.” Forgiveness is the unconditional grace of God that He offers to the repentant heart, and yet so many have a hard time accepting that gift. But for those who do, it transforms them! God’s Gift of Forgivenessseeks to renew your confidence in God’s longing to forgive and restore you into His image; the book seeks to teach you how to accept that gift and freely give it to others.

This book is about revealing to yourself your own power through forgiving the idea that anyone else in your life is stronger than you are. What does acceptance of the gifts of forgiveness mean? From love flows forgiveness. In love forgiveness is received. Who can this book help? This book is for all who are seeking peace in times of crises. Key points: 1. Forgiveness means giving over, not giving up. 2. Forgiveness flows from the awareness of love. 3. Find the love within self so that forgiveness comes naturally. What are the gifts of forgiveness? You will receive a sense of freedom, a sense of personal awareness, a sense of peace and personal power. The power of peace is a part of the revelation that comes from forgiving all the limits that have kept you so occupied in the world that you couldn't understand who you are. The gift is recognizing that you have a right to something better, the right to be free, and the right to live comfortably without asking anyone else's permission. Forgiveness brings about inner illumination - enlightenment. What's the process of forgiveness? First, recognize what is required to be forgiven and understand that you are required to forgive yourself as you forgive others. Thinking, "I have nothing to forgive myself about," is delusional and a denial of your greatest capabilities. Second, be willing to allow yourself to be all right (even if you are wrong). Forgiveness doesn't make you wrong, but the ego makes you believe that if you forgive, it is an admission of giving up. Third, feel the willingness to let the situation go. Finally, realize that you are a container for greater things than you have allowed. Let yourself be filled up with a whole new viewpoint, feeling about the person or situation, and a whole new perspective of how it can work.

Loving-kindness, the English translation of the Pali word metta, is defined as unconditional well-wishing and openhearted nurturing of ourselves and others, just as we are. By practicing loving-kindness, you can learn to treat yourself and others-even strangers-like dear friends, putting aside criticism and judgment and choosing instead to open your heart to greater generosity, forgiveness, and compassion. While Buddha taught loving-kindness meditation as an antidote to fear, it can also quiet feelings of anger, judgment, and worry by helping you see the innate goodness within yourself and others. Whether used as part of a formal meditation practice or as daily mindfulness exercises, the 100 meditations in The Gift of Loving-Kindnessmake it easy to open your heart and share the seeds of loving-kindness with others. The Gift of Loving-Kindnessskillfully guides us to train our minds and hearts in the practice of loving-kindness meditation. The meditative exercises in this book can spark one's journey into greater love and compassion or enrich it anywhere along the path. Combining internal reflection and mindful exploration of our heart's capacity, these pragmatic exercises open us to genuine transformation. -Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness Keep The Gift of Loving-Kindnesson your bed table and let its wisdom guide you. This book offers a rich assortment of contemplations that will open and free your heart. -Tara Branch, Buddhist teacher and author of Radical Acceptance: Embracing your Life with the Heart of a Buddha Simply reading these words will awaken you. Actually doing even one of these practices could profoundly transform your life. I offer warm and deep thanks to the authors for blessing us with these hundred doorways to the deepest and best parts of ourselves as human beings. -Jeffrey Brantley, MD, author of Calming Your Anxious Mind Use this practical and heartfelt book to discover how to open your heart in any circumstance. New scientific evidence confirms that filling your heart with loving-kindness can broaden your mind and build your best possible future. -Barbara L. Fredrickson, Ph.D., recipient of the Templeton Positive Psychology Prize Perhaps the greatest power of loving-kindness meditation lies in its elegant simplicity. It is a gentle, easy-to-learn practice, yet its effects are profound, like a deep massage for the mind and soul. The authors present this ancient wisdom in a way that can soothe, deepen, and enrich our busy, modern lives. -Rebecca Elliott, Ph.D., psychologist

The powerful story of a friendship between two men—one Sikh and one skinhead—that resulted in an outpouring of love and a mission to fight against hate. One Sikh. One former Skinhead. Together, an unusual friendship emerged out of a desire to make a difference. When white supremacist Wade Michael Page murdered six people and wounded four in a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin in 2012, Pardeep Kaleka was devastated. The temple leader, now dead, was his father. His family, who had immigrated to the U.S. from India when Pardeep was young, had done everything right. Why was this happening to him? Meanwhile, Arno Michaelis, a former skinhead and founder of one of the largest racist skinhead organizations in the world, had spent years of his life committing terrible acts in the name of white power. When he heard about the attack, waves of guilt washing over him, he knew he had to take action and fight against the very crimes he used to commit. After the Oak Creek tragedy, Arno and Pardeep worked together to start an organization called Serve 2 Unite, which works with students to create inclusive, compassionate and nonviolent climates in their schools and communities. Their story is one of triumph of love over hate, and of two men who breached a great divide to find compassion and forgiveness. With New York Times bestseller Robin Gaby Fisher telling Arno and Pardeep's story, The Gift of Our Wounds is a timely reminder of the strength of the human spirit, and the courage and compassion that reside within us all.

Despite recent interest in forgiveness and reconciliation, relatively little research has been conducted on forgiveness in literary studies. A Poetics of Forgiveness explores the profound links between creativity and forgiveness, and argues that creative production and interpretation can play a vital role in practices of forgiveness. Developing a model of "poetic forgiveness" through the work of Julia Kristeva, Jacques Derrida, and Kelly Oliver, A Poetics of Forgiveness asks how forgiveness is expressed in literature and other art forms, and what creative works can bring to secular debates on forgiveness and conflict resolution. Jill Scott explores these questions in a wide variety of historical and cultural contexts, from Homer s Iliad to 9/11 novels, from postwar Germany to post-Apartheid South Africa, in canonical texts and in diverse media, including film, photography, and testimony.
