The gift of forgiveness can be yours.
From bestselling author, mental health expert, restorative justice advocate, and trauma survivor Shannon Moroney comes a powerful tool to guide and support you along the life-changing journey to forgiveness.
Informed by over a decade of work providing individual therapy and facilitating forgiveness retreats and workshops across a wide spectrum of settings—from large city conferences to tiny fly-in Arctic communities—Heal For Real walks you through a proven curriculum that has helped thousands to make peace with the past, and achieve post-traumatic growth.
Through hands-on activities, reflections, and inspirational stories and quotes, Moroney takes you through the steps of defining what forgiveness means—and doesn’t mean—to you, and provides practical strategies that will help you achieve it. Along the way, you’ll also gain insight from the forgiveness journeys of incredible individuals—including Shannon’s own path toward forgiveness, following violent crimes committed by her first husband.
Above all, you’ll be supported in a highly personal, individualized journey of healing. Whether what happened was Big T trauma or little t trauma, whether you were hurt or did the hurting, Heal For Real will guide you to understand and bring forgiveness into your life—in a way that’s right for you.
