Welcome to Forgiveness
Goals for the Learner: In this module, you will work through practical exercises with the goal of becoming a more forgiving individual. You will learn how to forgive, applying a five-step method to “REACH Forgiveness” in relation to transgressions you have experienced. Once you have learned the five steps, you will apply them to a variety of hurts. By doing so, you can broaden your forgiving character. You can truly become a person who has few unresolved hurts and who can resolve new hurts quickly and thoroughly.
Type of Learner: Anyone looking to forgive a particular hurt, high school age or older.
Module Logistics: This module can be completed in a month, or, if you prefer to extend your reflection time, you can take up to 6 weeks for completion. We suggest you take a few days to set up your learning program with help of the introduction, then take an hour to do each section with further daily reflections of 10-15 minutes every day for 2-3 days (up to a week) in between sections.
