Publisher's Summary

Forgiveness is possible. In The Beginner's Guide to Forgiveness, author Jack Kornfield explores why forgiveness, personally and globally, is essential to our health and happiness and how you can start using this timeless practice to transform emotional wounds into healing and understanding.

Drawing from his background in meditation and psychology, Kornfield reveals the path to forgiveness and the way out of our pain. Once you understand your own suffering, he says, compassion arises naturally, so you can extend it to others as well as yourself. With guided meditations and insights from the world's wisdom teachings, Kornfield shows how forgiveness can be practiced as a gift we give not only to others but ultimately to ourselves.

Disappointing

First 47 minutes were stories on why forgiveness is important. Last 10 minutes were a meditation. Not very helpful if you want true exercises on how to forgive. Reader is very soft spoken and I fell asleep the first two times I tried to listen. Had to be standing up in order to get threw it.

"You will see it when you believe it."

Only with practice my realization developed.
A Course in Miracles reference that we always have to forgive someone.
These practices by Jack Kornfield is necessary and sufficient to stay on the path of forgiveness. You will only realise it when you do it.
