The Tutu Global Forgiveness Challenge

Announcement | April 28, 2014

The Forgiveness Challenge, launching May 4, will help you discover how the act of forgiving can bring more love and peace to your life.

While forgiveness sometimes happens quickly and easily it is a deeply personal process that can take time and effort. It’s different for everyone and every situation but if the hurt is significant, it usually involves more than simply saying a few words.

The Fourfold Path is the process we developed in The Book of Forgiving, and it is based on our work around the world who have suffered heartbreak and violence. The four steps are: Telling the Story, Naming the Hurt, Granting Forgiveness, and Renewing or Releasing the Relationship. During the Challenge you’ll learn more about each step.

We know how busy you are, so we’ve tried to keep each exercise brief—something you can finish in less than 15 minutes, though you might want to spend more time if you have it. Like anything, you get out of it what you put into it. And what you will get with the Forgiveness Challenge is more joy, more love, and more freedom.

Sign up, and starting May 4th you’ll receive a daily inspirational email from the Archbishop and Mpho Tutu, with a link to join their online forgiveness community. Inside, you’ll get:

  • Daily exercises to teach you how to forgive anyone for anything.
  • Extraordinary stories from ordinary people who have been transformed through forgiving or being forgiven.
  • Interviews with the world’s top forgiveness experts, great spiritual leaders, and well-known celebrities, including Alanis Morissette and Arianna Huffington.
  • Community support from people just like you who are trying to live a more forgiving life.
  • And it’s free!
