The Power of Forgiveness is a comprehensive guide to forgiveness as a healing practice. The author makes the crucial point that, for us to be the most empowered versions of ourselves in the world, we must prioritize our healing. And forgiveness is the most important path toward healing that we can undertake.
The book is made up of three distinct parts. Part I engages the reader in considering what forgiveness is, and what it isn't, and why it is so important to participate in this powerful and often misunderstood, process.
Part II reveals the framework and process. The author offers readers a comprehensive roadmap, with a series of written exercises and guided meditations, toward forgiveness. The structure she provides helps to strengthen the competencies we need to forgive fully.
The final section of the book discusses concepts related to forgiveness that deepen our understanding of the healing practice. In considering the impact of personal forgiveness on the world around us, Hooks shows us in great detail how people who practice forgiveness in their daily lives have the capacity to heal both themselves and the world.
