"If we harbor thoughts of violence or hatred, or seek revenge orretribution, we are contributing to the wounding of the world; ifwe transform those thoughts into forgiveness and compassion, andthen move beyond them to actually make amends or restitution, weare contributing to the healing of the world. This timely, powerfuland compassionate book helps show us the way."
Deepak Chopra

"Nothing will help us survive the present age more than breakingthe tragic cycles of violence and revenge that threaten our veryexistence. To do so, we must honor our soul's desire for deeperforms of reconciliation, a process that Phil Cousineau reveals hereas being on the other side of forgiveness, in the ancient ritual ofatonement. His book is a profoundly important contribution to thehealing of the world, and I give it my blessing."
Robert A. Johnson, author of Transformation,Inner Work and Owning Your Own Shadow

As indispensable as forgiveness has been to the healing processthroughout history, there is another equally profound action thatis needed for ultimate reconciliation, which Arun Gandhi, grandsonof Mohandas Gandhi, calls “the other side of the coin.”Turning over the coin of forgiveness, we discover atonement,the half-hidden, much-overlooked other half of the reconciliationprocess.

Beyond Forgiveness shows how acts ofatonement—making amends, providing restitution, restoringbalance—can relieve us of the pain of the past and give us ahopeful future. This rich and powerful book includes 15 thoughtfulcontributions by high-profile thinkers and activists includingHuston Smith, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Azim Khamisa, Rabbi MichaelLerner, Jacob Needleman, Michael Nagler, Diane Hennacy Powell,James O’Dea, Arun Gandhi, Kate Dahlstedt, Ed Tick, Richard J.Meyer, Rev. Heng Sure, Douglas George-Kanentiio and KatharineDever. Atonement is put forward as a process that we must all learnto practice—from individuals to nations—if we are toheal our wounds and move forward.
