Is there someone you want to forgive but just can’t?
Forgiveness is an internal process in which an individual will be able to let go of negative emotions and thoughts, as well as to enhance positive emotions towards oneself and others. Forgiveness is deeply personal and true healing is different for everyone. Coaching isn’t therapy; it’s focused on being emotionally aware, and developing a personal understanding of the journey towards forgiveness. You’ll develop a deep understanding of your story, knowing yourself, curiosity of oneself and the other, empathy and non-judgment, developing meaning in your life and relinquishing grievances.
Some Reasons to Choose to Forgive
- Forgiving is an act of self-empowerment – FOR YOU.
- Forgiving liberates YOU from the bonds of YOUR past.
- When YOU find forgiveness within YOURSELF the less likely you will harm others.
“To forgive is not just to be altruistic. It is the best form of self-interest. It is also a process that does not exclude hatred and anger. These emotions are all part of being human.”
– Rev. Desmond Tutu
Remembering Eva Kor
By Louisa Hext, North American Exhibit Co-ordinator
Eva Kor, Holocaust survivor, forgiveness advocate, and founder of CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center, passed peacefully on July 4th, 2019 in Krakow, Poland. It seems cosmically fitting that she passed during the annual CANDLES educational trip to Auschwitz, the place where she suffered and was liberated.
Eva was an incredible influence in my life. She was resilient, passionate, and dedicated. Her love for humanity, especially for our future generations, was profound. I will miss our personal connection through phone calls, texts, tweets and occasional visits. I was grateful to see Eva just three weeks before her passing.

Louisa has a warm, authentic way of working with highly complex and conflictual situations, bringing them to resolution and achieving reconciliation for all concerned. Her years of experience in the field of forgiveness and her connection to, and work with, the Charter for Compassion, give her a unique and deep insight into the dynamics and processes involved in achieving wholeness in relationship to oneself and others. I highly recommend her brave and loving work.
