Overview

Forgiving someone who has wronged you holds power far beyond the act itself. On The Beginner's Guide to Forgiveness, Jack Kornfield explores why forgiveness is essential to our health and happiness and how anyone can begin its practice. Drawing from his background in meditation and psychology, Kornfield reveals the roots of the forgiveness process within our own internalized pain. By embracing our own suffering, compassion arises naturally, so we can extend it to others as well as ourselves. With guided meditations and insights from the world's wisdom teachings, Kornfield teaches that when forgiveness is practiced, it is a gift we give not only to others - but ultimately to ourselves.
