The Power of Forgiveness – A Conversation with Frederic Luskin, PhD

Free Audio from DrMiller.com

Frederic Luskin, PhD has become world famous for his work in a most unusual subject – forgiveness. This  quality is sorely needed in this world of polarization, conflict, and violence. I first met Dr. Luskin when he approached me at the end of a class I was teaching at Stanford University, while he was in graduate school. In this conversation we will trace his pathway to his current position. He is now the Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Projects and an Associate Professor at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. In his work in health promotion, he started to research the effect that forgiveness had on physical and emotional well-being as well as the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease. His research showed that learning to forgive helps people hurt less, experience less anger, feel less stress and suffer less depression. As people learn to forgive they become more hopeful, optimistic and compassionate, and they report significantly fewer symptoms of stress such as backache, muscle tension, dizziness, headaches and upset stomachs. In this conversation you will get to meet him up close and personal as he and Dr. Miller share their perspectives on forgiveness and healing at the personal and family level as well as at the global level.
