Want to be a better leader?
Want to contribute more to your community?
Want to live a happier, more empowered life where your dreams become a reality?
The mission of the Forgiveness Academy™ is to make the world a more compassionate place to live where every individual lives an inspired existence.
Gandhi had it right when he said we must be the change we want to see in the world. Empowered people create companies and communities that prioritize contribution, personal fulfillment and success, and true justice.
What does all this have to do with forgiveness? Fair question. It’s simple, really. We can expend our energy on the past (grievances, assumptions, opinions, what we are sure we know) or we can spend it creating in the present moment and planning big things for the future! But, we can’t have both. Changing the relationship we have to the past changes everything.
All forgiveness begins with the thought, “There is something wrong.” This single decree compels us to find fault in our lives. For a moment, close your eyes and imagine what life would look like if every aspect of what is happening right now—your mind, body, spirit, and everything in the world around you—is the way it is for a reason, and that reason is for your growth and evolution as a human being.
You don’t have to believe it to be so; just imagine it as a possibility.
At the Forgiveness Academy™, we teach the skills needed to get in touch with the truth of who we are. We teach organizations how to embrace the best aspects of human nature to operate in the world in a way that advances us all. We all have a role to play in the evolution of humanity.
Join us and together we can change the world.
Emily's approach is both engaging and compassionate and I look to her as my forgiveness guru!
I am more grateful for my past experiences; I have learned to be more joyful and more compassionate.
With just the short amount of time spent in this workshop, I became aware of some very startling revelations about who I needed to forgive and what for.
I have been involved in healing work for over 30 years, and this has to be one of the most beneficial workshops I have taken.
Meeting Emily has opened my eyes up to how forgiveness can impact a person.
It's been really important to me to have a safe space and work with someone who is completely accepting and non-judgmental. Emily Hooks has provided all of that for me.
Emily has transformed the way I look at forgiveness—I mean, truly
I was able to connect more with my husband, to focus on empathy...

Forgiveness is deeply personal. The process we use is based on a structured framework and 8-step process, but the reality is true healing is different for everyone. The coaching we provide is not like therapy. While therapy is very helpful for many and is especially useful through a crisis, the work we do at the Academy is focused specifically on emotional awareness, and developing specific skills we need to learn to forgive. These skills include a deep understanding of our story, empathy, and non-judgment. All of this works in conjunction with increased emotional acuity to guide clients to an experience of gratitude and freedom from the past.
