"Transformative Practices" with Fred Luskin
Visionary: Frederic Luskin, PhD
Among transformative practices is the practice of forgiveness. It has been shown to reduce anger, hurt, depression and stress and leads to greater feelings of hope, peace, compassion and self confidence. Forgiveness means you take back your power. You literally say, "My life is mine." When you meet people who have forgiven, you see their power. Forgiveness allows you a fresh start, whether it's a big insult or a small one. It's like a rain coming to a polluted environment. It clears things.
Fred Luskin makes the distinction between justice, reconciliation, condoning and forgiveness. Forgiveness does not mean you condone the action. It doesn't mean you have to reconcile with or like the person who did it. He says that forgiveness is a skill that can be learned and he will describe tools and techniques we can use to transform our lives through the practice of forgiveness.
