To help participants understand, how the currently accepted idea of forgiveness can lead to far more problems in the long run. Is there an alternative which can be more effective?


For a long time I have been told by many spiritual gurus that the key to happiness in a relationship is forgiveness.

In my experience forgiveness meditations and related process would give me temporary relief and a short term feel good factor, but in the long term the same problems crept up again many me feel more frustrated and angry then earlier.

I thought maybe I have not understood the idea of forgiveness correctly, so I discussed it with others who have also been through many similar processes. I realized that their understanding and experience was not too different from mine. In fact in some cases there was also a lot of dependence on meditations, as this became an escape route for many.

So I would like to know why is forgiveness not working for so many people? Also what else can be done?


An open mind and a willingness to live a happier life
