The International Institute for Radical Forgiveness and Leadership (IIRFL) has been borne out of the Institute for Radical Forgiveness, which was developed by Colin Tipping in 1997. In 2018, Colin chosen Godfrey O’Flaherty to be the Custodian and owner of the Radical Forgiveness work. Godfrey has bought all the Radical Forgiveness Intellectual Property, as well as the business of Radical Forgiveness, as a Global Enterprise from Collin Tipping.
The Institute’s mission is to raise consciousness through expanding forgiveness across the globe. The IIRFL is the official international body which will govern all the work of Radical Forgiveness, globally.
Radical Forgiveness has been translated into 9 languages across 51 countries. The IIRFL accredit and register coaches across the globe, to add to its already thriving body of coaches and students.
Additionally, IIRFL will continue to expand its global reach, as it recently set up the Africa Institute Affiliate for IIRFL. The Africa Institute will work throughout the continent in the field of forgiveness and as a bridge-building institution for individuals, organizations and communities.
Training and Development
Under the direction of Godfrey O’Flaherty, we are establishing a Centre for Research, to focus on coaching research about the impact of forgiveness and healing of the body, mind and soul. The Institute is in the process of refreshing our current Radical Forgiveness Coaching and developing other future programs, including:
The IIRFL will house the Colin Tipping Foundation, in loving memory of Colin and his incredible work. This foundation will be a philanthropic organization, managed on behalf of funders. It aims to create projects and programs run under the Radical Forgiveness banner that will facilitate emotional healing around the world. Using the Radical Forgiveness methodologies, projects will include developing youth leaders, addressing gender base discrimination and guiding communities globally on dealing with social challenges. (Using the Radical Forgiveness technology, example projects include developing youth leaders, empowering woman and dealing with social challenges faced by communities around the world.)
IIRFL seeks to play a more active role in the education space. We aim to equip the youth globally, especially from disadvantageous communities to deal effectively with the challenges these communities face. With this aim in mind we strive to contribute constructively to the emotional wellbeing of young learners, throughout the world. The Colin Tipping philanthropy foundation will fund these international systemic forgiveness projects. The mission of the Colin Tipping Foundation is to facilitate emotional wellbeing, living with awareness and resilience which will enable learners to embrace, advance and develop their full human potential.
Finally, leadership development is also at the heart of the Institute’s future focus. With the IIRFL, Godfrey seeks to use his passion and experience in leadership development, by creating programs that will help leaders in communities, organizations and all walks of life to rise above their own egos and in so doing being released from their shadow that derails them from their purpose. In this way, the IIRFL aims to bring reconciliation and promote healing through Radical Forgiveness programs.
The International Institute for Radical Forgiveness and Leadership looks forward to partnering with you on this personal growth and development journey

Where to Start? You may choose to start at either Self-Forgiveness or Self-Acceptance. That’s up to you! Trust your own intuition regarding which option is best for you.
Proceed Sequentially The process flows in a sequence, so we recommend that you go through the Program taking each module in order. So if you start with Self-Forgiveness, complete that in order before moving on to Self-Acceptance.
Important: Do NOT begin this program unless and until you are totally committed to going through the whole thing, step-by-step, to complete all five stages of the Radical Forgiveness process.
This is serious work that you are doing, so it would be very unwise to begin the process and then leave it half way through having stirred up a “hornets’ nest” but without it being transformed. It is vital that once begun, you stay the course to make sure that it all becomes properly processed. Choose your time carefully so you can be sure that you will have the time to complete the program and be allowed the space to go through some discomfort if necessary. If that is not possible at this time, you are advised to wait until that is the case.
Disclaimer: You definitely should not do this program at all if you have, or have recently had, a serious mental illness. Please consult your mental health physician or board certified mental health adviser if you have any doubt whatsoever about your capacity to deal with what may arise.
Take Your Time Do not rush through the program. The work you will do here will stir memories, thoughts, ideas and beliefs that are deeply rooted in your subconscious and, given time, these will become part of the transformation process.
It will also have the effect of prompting your unconscious mind to go through a “healing cycle”. This is something that happens automatically and is most likely to occur during sleep.

Repeating the Worksheet Since it is a complete process in and of itself, it is something you can do time and time again to keep you free of guilt and shame. The Self-Forgiveness Worksheet This worksheet is the final Module 6 of the Self-Forgiveness Program. Everything you have done in the prior modules has been leading up to, and preparing you for, this experience. It is designed to take you through all Five Stages of the Radical Self-Forgiveness process and is therefore a complete experience in and of itself. It will give you a printout at the end. Privacy and Security of Your Entries In order to ensure privacy and the security of what you write as you progress through the course, DO NOT give anyone your login information, especially your password. When you complete a Module, make sure you log out and close the Program.
Access Period You have access to your Program for the lifetime of the Program.
“No Activity” Timeout Period If you are part way through a module and you leave the computer, or don’t refresh the page or go on to the next page within 30 minutes, the system will automatically log you out. In that case, please log back in again to continue.
Breathwork At times you might find yourself experiencing strong feelings. This is a good and natural part of the program, so to help you move through these we have provided a short breathwork bonus. It simply guides you through a breathing process which will help you return to a place of calm while at same time staying aware of, and lovingly accepting, your feelings.
