International Forgiveness Day
It's amazing how the forgiveness movement continues to grow! We are all ready to open our hearts, quiet our minds and heal our emotional wounds through this beautiful practice.
On September 18th, 2023, we will celebrate the 5th edition of the International Day of Forgiveness.
The previous editions have been a great success, with more than 400 events organised in some twenty countries. Forgiveness circles, meditations, Ho'ponopono rituals, radical forgiveness and other practices have helped to open our hearts and welcome our differences. Film screenings, prayer vigils, lectures, festivals, concerts, dances and spiritual ceremonies were also organised for the occasion.
If you too are using the power of forgiveness to heal hearts, we invite you to join the movement and share your action. Together we can be that drop of water that will transform the ocean into something beautiful and great.
If you would like to organise an event on this day, whatever your religious, philosophical or spiritual beliefs, we invite you to register via the link below. And if you just want to participate in an activity, you can consult the agenda which includes all the activities organised for this occasion.
Join us for this memorable day, and let us contribute together to create a world where forgiveness, love and compassion are at the heart of our actions.
