Forgiveness and Healing
Most world religions and wisdom traditions include teachings on the nature of forgiveness. This episode of Global Spirit explores forgiveness and healing on a personal and societal level. The program features author and psychotherapist Dr. Ed Tick and his wife Kate Dahlstedt taking a group of PTSD traumatized Vietnam War vets back to the land where they fought and killed, to help them learn the art of "forgiveness of the self". Program guest Azim Khamisa powerfully illustrates "forgiveness of the other" as he traces how he learned to forgive the boy who murdered his own son. Now Khamisa works with the killer's grandfather to foster forgiveness and healing with young audiences all over the world.
