Happiness Begins With Forgiveness: Dr. Laurie Pappas Offers Powerful Resources In The ‘The Loving Heart’

06-23-2011 10:20 AM CET | Arts & Culture

Press release from: Dr. Laurie Pappas

Many people feel that forgiving others is often not possible or perhaps simply not deserved. Dr. Laurie Pappas, author of ‘The Loving Heart: Navigating The Journey From Conflict To Peace,’ teaches that forgiveness is a necessary and significant step on the road to happiness. She offers Elizabeth Smart's ordeal as an extreme example of the transformational power of forgiveness

Everyone knows the story of Elizabeth Smart, who was kidnapped and raped daily for nine months by her captor, Brian David Mitchell, before being rescued. Amazingly, Smart went on to forgive her tormentor and has gone on to establish The Elizabeth Smart Foundation, dedicated to helping protect children from physical abuse.

“Elizabeth Smart”, stated Dr. Pappas, “is a role model for us all. In her ability to forgive her tormentor, Brian David Mitchell, she has freed herself from the bondage that could keep her from living her life fully and with great purpose. Perhaps through her faith, but certainly through deep inner work, she has risen from her ashes with plans to go to college, and to help protect children from physical abuse through her creation of the new Elizabeth Smart Foundation. Hopefully, we can all learn from her courage and her commitment to life, that if we hold onto anger in our hearts, we thwart the very essence of who we are, that of love, compassion, and benevolence. Through forgiveness, we liberate ourselves to live and participate fully in this valuable and meaningful life we've been given."

Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook entitled 'The Loving Heart Companion'. Dr. Pappas has included over 30 years of observation and wisdom gained from personal experiences, as well as working with students, clients, family members and colleagues. She now offers a series of teleclasses dealing with the subjects contained within her written works.

"Elizabeth Smart's choice," Dr. Pappas continued, "to forgive gives each of us great food for thought. If she can do this under such horrific circumstances, couldn't we all? Concepts such as forgiveness, surrender and the mirroring principle, help us to mend the fearful, anxious and angry states of mind that accompany us each day. These concepts help us to uproot any disturbing thoughts we may have, and replace them with calm, peaceful ones, freeing us to extend hopeful, caring thoughts into regions of the world that so critically need our nonviolent, harmonic energy.”

Dr. Pappas offers phone and in-person spiritual and metaphysical counseling, in addition to life coaching, classes, workshops, speaking engagements and teleclasses. More information on all the resources she offers is available at her website. Specific information on teleclasses is available by email. Dr. Pappas is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below, or by email at laurie@lovingheartconnection.com. 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the Journey from Conflict to Peace' and the accompanying workbook, 'The Loving Heart Companion', are available at her website, Amazon.com, Rittenhouse, Nacscorp and Expresso Book Machines.

Dr. Laurie Pappas is an educator, spiritual counselor, speaker, writer and life coach. Dr. Pappas is a recipient of the 2005 International Peace Prize, Key of Success Award, and Woman of the Year Award, bestowed by the United Cultural Convention of the United States of America for outstanding personal achievements to the good of society as a whole. She lives and teaches using ancient psycho-spiritual principles. She is the co-founder of the Metro Detroit Center for Attitudinal Healing, a non-profit center, whose activities she directed for 16 years. She has been counseling for 22 years. She has taught classes and workshops and trained support group leaders, in addition to writing articles for a large metaphysical newspaper.
