Aloha, I’ve spent a good deal of my career working with and teaching forgiveness, specifically ho’oponopono, the ancient forgiveness practice of the Hawaiian Islands. In fact, I wrote my PhD dissertation on it. So I’ve got some expertise in this area, and I’ve noticed that there’s some pretty rotten advice out there on forgiveness. Check […]

What Everybody Ought to Know About Forgiveness
