Forgiveness at the United Nations!

I (Jed) was transformed four years ago at a conference on Forgiveness presented by Fred Luskin, Ph.D. I took an instant liking to Fred and found his work simpatico with my philosophy of life. I learned a great deal about the method and details of forgiveness from Fred. I had an instinctive feeling that I was at the beginning of an important journey.
I hunger to share this journey with you and others. Once I studied and learned the forgiveness methodology, I presented forgiveness with Fred. Out of this friendship, we formed The Forgive for Good Center for Forgiveness Education and have been training others to teach Forgiveness to their communities. We now have in operation a certified forgiveness training program and have proudly graduated three classes. Today, hundreds of psychotherapists from various disciplines have incorporated this forgiveness methodology into their clinical practices.
On a personal note, I have found that when I forgive, anyone even for the smallest offense, I am significantly healed and the world feels more open and accepting. Forgiveness has not ended my suffering, but it has enabled me to ease my mind and body, so that I am not dominated by past, personal hurts. For me, forgiveness leads to compassion for self and others and eventually to Peace.

Recently, Fred called me to let me know that he had been invited to speak on Compassion at an event called The TEDPrize@UN which will celebrate the one year anniversary of the Charter for Compassion. This event will take place on November 18th, from 11a.m. to 1p.m. at The United Nations and will be broadcast on a special Webcast.
I felt honored that Fred would invite me to this event as his guest. I am so grateful to be a part of this momentous work. I want to share this with all of you! I hope you will get a chance to view the Webcast
I would love to hear your thoughts and comments about it.
