Introduction and Instructions

Congratulations! Making a commitment to yourself to work this program is a very self-supportive — even self-loving — thing to do. I hope you get a lot out of it.

Begin by viewing these modules in sequence:

  • Preamble
  • What is Radical Forgiveness?
  • Basic Assumptions
  • Five Stages
  • Safety Valves
  • Preprogram Jitters

There is valuable information in each one, and once you are familiar with them, you will find it helpful to refer to these modules when you need additional encouragement or just a reminder.

Once you are ready to begin the 21 days where you are committing to doing a unit each day, open the module called “Preprogram Jitters.” You will find a link at the bottom of that page which will activate the 21 units. Once you have activated them, you will be able to repeat them again. You have access to this program for as long as it is on the internet.

Before beginning the 21 units though, there are a few things you will want to have on hand to get the most out of the program. They include:

  1. Cray-Pas or other oil pastel type colors (These are available at most art supply stores.)
  2. Drawing paper (9×12 works well.)
  3. Plain white paper plate
  4. A plate to use as a template for drawing a circle on the drawing paper
  5. A cushion or mattress
  6. A rubber or plastic bat or tennis racket 7. Paper for a timeline 8. Pen or pencil 9. Post-It notes

WARNING: The program has a safety feature where it will time out and automatically sign you out of the program after a period of inactivity.

It is always a good idea to complete the page you are working on by clicking the “Next” link at the bottom of the page you are on. That way everything will be saved for you the next time you open that unit.

You may also want to write and save your work in your word processing program first. You can then do a copy/paste into this program. That way, if you take a long time to write your answers, lose connection to the internet, your power, or anything else unexpected, you will still have your work saved.

That is it for now. Enjoy the program.
