In conjunction with Florida Hospital and the Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Dick Tibbits
conducted a study of how anger and forgiveness affect health. The findings of this study became the Forgive to Live
Facilitated across six self paced topics, the Forgive to Live course is conducted in three parts.
1 - Learning: Dr. Tibbets delivers a short presentation explaining his findings about forgiveness and how to
incorporate this knowledge in facilitating your own forgiveness journey.
2 - Self Reflection: A series of questions prompts you to reflect and engage in your forgiveness
3 - Inspiration (optional step): Watch a testimony from someone who has gone through their own
forgiveness journey, and discover the application within their story.
Many people blame others for the problems in their life, but who is ultimately responsible for your happiness?
We are affected emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually when we continually relive the hurts of the past.
Our future happiness is determined by the choices that we make today. As someone once said, "All the flowers of all our tomorrows are in the seeds of today."
Reframing helps you to see the actions of those who you feel have wronged you, as well as your reaction, with new insights that enable you to see things outside the narrow perspective of your hurt.
Continual anger can make your life and the lives of those around you miserable and unhappy. Recognising your anger is an important step in being able to forgive.
Guilt and shame can cause us to live under a cloud of self-condemnation, which can produce the same unhappiness and negative effects as being hurt by others.
