Forgive: The Documentary

Forgive, explored through the eyes of Shawne Duperon, is a deep inquiry into how and why humans forgive. If you’ve heard Shawne speak at workshop, she may have mentioned her past experience of being sexually abused.

Shawne says incest is the best thing that ever happened to her.

What an odd thing to say.

For her, it’s not about the experience or the trauma of sexual abuse, but rather how she values the deeply compassionate person she has become in the journey of forgiving.

Years of incest recovery, therapy, and personal development have brought this film maker to what she believes is the essence of being alive – the ability to manage fear in any capacity and to forgive -to forgive others who have hurt someone, to forgive others for being human, and to ultimately forgive oneself.

This film explores the stages you my encounter when hurt, what roadblocks you may face when resentment builds up and what all humans may need to examine on a journey to inner peace and fulfillment.

With her spiritual mentor, colleague and dearest friend, Elisabeth Fayt, the pair uncover the raw emotions of forgiveness and its range of meanings and phases experienced, and in some instances avoided, by millions.

Compelling stories are featured throughout the film, taking viewers on an exquisite and emotional journey to inquire within themselves what they personally may need to face and may need to forgive (or ask for forgiveness) to find their own inner peace and happiness.
