Forgive and Be Free April 15 2014
By KiaScherr - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
In The Book of Forgiving, Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Mpho Tutu are inviting us to join them on the path of forgiveness so that we can 'heal the world by healing each and every one of our hearts'. I was invited to share my story of forgiveness for this book, which is quite an honor, and when I received my copy upon its release, I was surprised at how much grief I hadn't yet processed as I read it. I have told my story many times, both in person and in writing. Telling the Story is the first step on this Fourfold Path of Forgiveness. Naming the Hurt is the second step on the path and this is where I had not completed the journey. I had no words to name my hurt over losing my husband and 13 year old daughter in a terrorist attack. I certainly felt it but it was so overwhelming that I plunged into the third step of Granting Forgiveness so that I could restore peace within myself. I discovered I could not truly Release the Relationship to this event and Renew my relationship with life without Naming the Hurt. Even now my eyes fill with tears as I write this. Healing the heart is a process of liberation that requires full acknowledgement of the emotional pain that splits the heart into pieces. I am so grateful to Desmond and Mpho Tutu for outlining the importance of this step and giving many examples from the stories of others who have suffered violent, unexpected losses of dear ones. By allowing ourselves to fully accept the reality by naming it, frees us from being bound by the shackles of that which cannot be changed. Forgiveness is then possible. By practicing this Fourfold Path on a regular basis we not only create inner peace, we give the gift of peace to everyone in our world.

Imperatives for Healthy Heart-Mind-Soul April 24 2014
By ClaireLouise - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully written by such credible, wise father and daughter.
I will recommend this to almost everyone I know, because almost everyone
I know is struggling with this issue, whether past or present. People should
understand that to forgive is not to condone. To forgive is not always to
continue the relationship. It is to relieve ourselves of negativity and bitterness
so we can move on with increased serenity.

A May 18 2014

Format: Kindle Edition
In the author's own words:
"The truth prevents us from pretending that the things that happened did not happen. How we begin is by first letting the truth be heard in all its rawness, in all its ugliness, and in all its messiness."
