What People Are Saying About BEYOND FORGIVENESS:
“If we harbor thoughts of violence or hatred, or seek revenge or retribution, we are contributing to the wounding of the world; if we transform those thoughts into forgiveness and compassion, and then move beyond them to actually make amends or restitution, we are contributing to the healing of the world. This timely, powerful and compassionate book helps show us the way.” — Deepak Chopra
“Beyond Forgiveness is an inspiring, practical and compelling book, relevant for our times....a profound and provocative...” — Angeles Arrien, Ph.D., author of The Second Half of Life
“Let this book open your heart.... The good and brave stories being told here...will give you courage...” — Coleman Barks, author of Rumi: The Big Red Book
“Potent and capable of moving hearts, minds, and even the legal system itself. This critically important book blazes new trails beyond social justice to atonement (at-one-ment), which is the taproot of reconciliation and true peace.” — Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money
BEYOND FORGIVENESS shows how acts of atonement—making amends, providing restitution, restoring balance—can relieve us of the pain of the past and give us a hopeful future.
