Forgiveness Coaching Program

The Forgiveness Coaching Program is a rigorous advanced program which offers a profound, embodied understanding of forgiveness and how to guide others in forgiveness work. The training is designed for those who wish to teach forgiveness, become forgiveness coaches and/or integrate forgiveness into other work they are doing.  Participants have included lawyers, mediators, therapists, ombudsmen, peacemakers, activists, nurses and educators.

The program is based on a research-based step-by-step forgiveness process.  Students will gain a deeper, embodied understanding of forgiveness and nuances likely to be encountered, as well as practical tools, and opportunities for practice.

This program provides an in-depth exploration of forgiveness and the nuances of guiding others through the process as well as demonstration and opportunities for practice. There will be recommended reading and homework in between sessions.

Students are expected to continue their own forgiveness work and healing on an ongoing basis, and will be provided with opportunities to do so, as this creates the foundation for working with others.

Class sizes are small and final scheduling of dates/times will take into account the scheduling preferences of those who enroll early!


I highly recommend Eileen’s coaching program. I enrolled to develop tools for helping my clients, but I also learned more about the nature of my work, and a profound change has occurred in me personally. I feel forgiveness can inform our whole lives in a positive way and offer a happiness and strength, I did not know was even possible. Barbara Monty, Mediator and Lawyer
