Group coaching is the most affordable way to learn and integrate the Forgiveness Academy™ principles into your life. Groups are limited to 4-6 individuals matched on background and goals. For example, if we have four applicants hoping to forgive a parent or overcome childhood trauma, we will form a group around these areas. The great news is that the process of forgiveness is universal in many ways. Regardless of background, you will find the connection and support you need from this group.

Research shows a sense of community and belonging is important to healing. This small group format is designed to provide not only the guidance and instruction you need but support and accountability from others.

What to Expect

Every group is unique, and so is the coaching. The work we do together will be based on the needs of the group with equal time and support provided to each member. We will begin with the following curriculum and adapt as necessary.

Group Sessions – Conducted via conference call or video conference on a weekly basis (time and date will be determined within the group). Each session will last between 60-90 minutes (depending on the number of group members).

Assignments – Expect to spend a minimum of 30 minutes per week completing assignments and an additional 15-30 minutes per day meditating. The more time you spend doing the work, the more progress you will make.

Accountability Partnership – Everyone will have an accountability partner within the group. You are asked to be accessible (within reason) to each other and to check in at least once a week.

Facebook Group – Each group will have a private Facebook Group (separate from the Forgiveness Academy Group). This will provide the community with support for questions, comments, concerns, etc. Some assignments will be submitted in the group (others via email or verbally).

Sample Curriculum

  • Week 1: Introduction to the Framework and Getting to Know Each Other
  • Week 2: Intentions and Story
  • Week 3: Emotional Awareness and Language
  • Week 4: Empathy and Connection
  • Week 5: Non-judgment and Resistance
  • Week 6: Self-forgiveness
  • Week 7: Open
  • Week 8: Roadmaps and Celebration


You can expect to have a deep understanding of the competencies and steps by the end of the series. Individual progress is based on willingness, time to do the work, and current understanding. Everyone can expect to have clarity on who the most need to forgive (it’s not always who you think it is). It is reasonable to expect to make to up to Step 4-5 in the process and to be clear on how to complete the process. These (4-5) can take months to complete so the more awareness you have about your points of resistance and intentions the better.

At the end of the initial 8-week series, all members will have the opportunity to continue coaching (with the same group or with a new group) at the initial group coaching rate. So, if you sign up before June 30, 2017, you will have access to group coaching for $100/month for up to 6 additional months!
