Your brain is your greatest resource—use it by design to help you learn how to stay healthier and younger for longer!

—Arlene R. Taylor PhD

Can you afford to be unforgiving?

Dr. Herbert Benson, Internationally renowned cardiologist, has coined the term ‘The Physiology of Forgiveness.’ His research has shown that an inability to forgive—yourself and others—is detrimental to your health. So the question becomes: can you afford to be unforgiving? Forgiveness is not always easy and it can be done. Moreover, the person you may most need to forgive is yourself.


This seminar is designed to present research on the health benefits that accrue through actively doing Step 1 and Step 2 of the forgiveness process. It includes a discussion of a ‘victim’ versus a ‘survivor’ stance—since everyone on the planet in injured in some way. It also present two sample metaphors to use as strategies.


One 50-minute section. (A second section, Forgiveness—Part 2, is also available.)


Audiences that are interested in understanding more about forgiveness and the connection with health and potentially longevity.


At the conclusion of the seminar, participants should be able to:

  • Craft a personal definition of forgiveness
  • Select a personal metaphor for forgiveness
  • State five negative health consequences of unforgiveness
  • List five positive health consequences that can accrue with genuine forgiveness
