Forgiveness holds a promise . . . of reconciliation and serenity, of empowerment and love.

The world's great spiritual traditions all teach forgiveness as the key to inner peace. But many people find this an impossible ideal--perhaps even a way of flossing over pain, anger, and wrongdoing.

Now, in this wise and heartfelt book, psychotherapist Robin Casarjian confronts the dilemmas of forgiveness and offers a new approach to healing our old wounds and self-judgements. Drawing on the philosophy of A Course in Miracles, plus years of experience with her own clients, she shows us why letting go of the past is not only possible but necessary, if we are to achieve lasting health and harmony.

Within these pages are simple but powerful exercises, meditations, and visualizations that acknowledge our hurt even as they lead us beyond it. Here, too, are moving true accounts of forgiveness in action, showing how parents and children, spouses and lovers, workers and bosses--even victims of crime and historic injustice--can all find peace.

"For those of us who have been troubled by fear, doubt, anger, self-hatred, and guilt--in other words, almost everyone who is human--this book is a real and rare treasure."--Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind.
