Cooperation Circle to Celebrate International Forgiveness Day on Aug. 2

ForgivenessSlide1The Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance (WFA), a URI Cooperation Circle and the founding organization of International Forgiveness Day, is sponsoring its 19th Annual International Forgiveness Day Awards Ceremony on Sunday August 2, 2015.

International Forgiveness Day was created in 1996 to honor the healing power of forgiveness. It is the dream our founder, Robert W. Plath, to have every first Sunday in August around the world designated as International Forgiveness Day, the first internationally sanctioned holiday.

Wave1The WFA pays tribute to Heroes of Forgiveness – people who exemplify the power of forgiveness by overcoming personal tragedies and traumas and by moving from anger and revenge to the transformative release of forgiveness and reconciliation. The Alliance also honors Champions of Forgiveness – those who dedicate their lives and work to expanding awareness and knowledge about forgiveness and helping others to experience its power.

The mission of the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance is to promote awareness and knowledge of the scientific findings related to forgiveness as well as the psychological, physiological, emotional and spiritual benefits of the forgiveness process.

This year’s 19th annual awards ceremony and entertainment event will be presented at Unity in Marin 600 Palm Dr, Novato, CA 94949, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM on Sunday August 2, 2015.
