Join Dr. Kelly this week as we discuss what is perhaps one of the most important components of happiness in this life, FORGIVENESS. We are joined this week by Dr. Fred Luskin, psychologist and forefront researcher in the realm of how forgiveness can HEAL our mental, physical and spiritual wounds. Dr. Luskin is the Director of the Stanford Forgiveness Projects, a Senior Consultant in Health Promotion at Stanford University, and has been teaching forgiveness for more than 20 years.
Forgiveness is a daily practice and a process, much like meditation. It is not the same as reconciliation, and it is not a sign of weakness but a practice of deep strength. In this podcast, we discuss how forgiveness as an empowering exercise in letting go of the past. This ground breaking approach offers insights into the healing powers and medical benefits of forgiveness. Dr. Luskin offers a powerful method in which the emphasis is of letting go of hurt, helplessness and anger while increasing confidence, hope and happiness. Through these powerful techniques individuals can learn how to release unwanted hurts and grudges and open themselves to happiness, peace and love.
