Forgiveness is a choice, the volition to move forward beyond hurt, harm or injustice. Forgiveness allows us to proceed in a life that holds an endless potential. It makes us stronger, wiser and kinder.

The F Word: Stories of Forgiveness is an internationally-renowned exhibition, displayed in over 550 venues. It uses real stories to encourage discussion and a possibility of healing. “The depth of your love is shown by the extent of your anger”, says Archbishop Desmond Tutu, founding patron of The Forgiveness Project. When you are angry the issue is always something you deeply care about.
Serious meditation practice helps us see how "negative" emotions are rooted in deep care and uncondiitional love.
In his story, which is part of the exhibit, Tutu continues to say: “If you can find it in yourself to forgive then you are no longer chained to the perpetrator. You can move on, and you can even help the perpetrator to become a better person too”.
Such an inspiration and definitly a gift, we are proud to be sharing this exhibit with visitors to Governors Island this year.
