Book Description

In November, 2008, Pakistani Muslim terrorists attacked Mumbai. The 5 Star Oberoi Hotel was one of their targets. The Oberoi was also where M.C. Cannon, leader of the Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality in Virginia, and 24 of his associates were staying. Four in the group were wounded and two were killed. When rescued by SWAT teams and interviewed by the press, Synchronicity survivors expressed immediate compassion and understanding towards the terrorists. During interviews and press conferences following the attack, they repeated words of forgiveness, not accusation. This ignited an international tsunami of stunned curiosity and thousands of e-mail messages and phone calls flooded in. “I am inspired by your response.” “How did you get to be the way you are?” And, “How can I learn to do that?” Forgiving the
Unforgivable is a response to those inquiries.

Forgiveness is perhaps the most misunderstood (and most urgently needed) human virtue. Consider historic deadlocks like
the Middle East conflict, North and South Korea, and the abusive scars of childhood that have rendered millions of individuals
unable to forgive and get on with a fulfilling life.

This book weaves together a page turning narrative of the Mumbai siege with a revolutionary explanation of what true
forgiveness really is and how to live the Holistic Lifestyle in a state of awareness where true forgiveness becomes instinctive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Forgiving the Unforgivable 29 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book because I am currently having a lot of my mind of relationships and other life situations that I am finding very difficult to let go of and forgive. So when I read the synopsis of this book, I thought I'd give it a go. It is a really good book; well-written. I think it is a very recommended read for people who go through similar situations as forgiving/letting go is really important to achieve, because without doing so, it can lead to being unhealthily obsessed with the past and stop you from moving on properly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spirituality mixed with marketing? If it reaches many I suppose it's a good thing 26 Mar. 2012
By Chelle - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Certain to make you think.
This is a great starter for one to continue on with, with eyes wide open.
I was a tad urked by the marketing sheebang and pointers at the end of each chapter to log on to the marketers website.

But, that aside, the story itself is powerful.
We can question 'who am I and where am I going'
How much, of trivial happenings in life do our minds create into major drama?!
To go thru an ordeal such as the Mumbai terror attack and remain present and calm, no need to become a screaming drama case, but to calmly move through the motions, now that is the power of a mind at peace which can only be obtained through practise of meditation and self knowledge, putting practise into action under the most extreme circumstance!

By Helen Connolly - Published on
In this gripping read, Master Charles Cannon and Will Wilkinson manage to combine edge of the seat story-telling with profound wisdom, and even more rare, an actual, experiential tutorial on 'being peace' in the moment as you read. This book is a tremendous gift to a world that needs it right now! Do yourself and your loved ones a favor... read it, live it, share it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Forgiveness 21 Mar. 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on
FORGIVING THE UNFORGIVABLE as written by Master Charles Cannon, founder of Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality, is a book that jars the reader with the title but slowly and gradually introduces Cannon's Holistic Meditation as a way of life that may just be a path for the healing of many subconscious pains we all carry. In his Foreword Eckhart Tolle states 'This book is about forgiveness but, more essentially, it is about how to live in a certain state of consciousness out of which forgiveness arises naturally and effortlessly. Thus, it is a book of spiritual teachings given against the background of a life-threatening emergency situation, just as the Bhagavad Gita is a book of spiritual teachings given against the background of an impending battle and, perhaps, imminent death.'

In this sharing of the experiences of the survivors of the Mumbai Terrorist attack in 2008 Cannon introduces the thought 'Most of us don't understand what forgiveness really is. We think it's about coming to terms with injury.' From this springboard Cannon introduces the sense of 'oneness', offering the thought that separation is an illusion. He wisely lets most of the book be in the words of those who survived that attack and how their response was not one of fear or hate but instead one of forgiveness - and all of that leads into pages of the phases of Holistic living Cannon preaches.

This is a book that can be returned to often to recall the tone that Master Cannon shares. Perhaps if more people in every country could have access to this book there would be less threat of war and violence. Grady Harp, March 12

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Antidote 19 Feb. 2012
By David Roth - Published on
Forgiving the Unforgivable relates the taut and disturbing series of incomprehensible events that took place in Mumbai in November, 2008 and the responses of people directly impacted by these events. Tragic and deeply sad as those events were this small collective of meditators demonstrated a practice, the Holistic Lifestyle, and a presence and consciousness that is revelatory, relevant to our times, and leading with the possibility for positive human potential. One cannot help but follow the gentle directives of Master Charles Cannon as he invites the reader to read between the words and experience the spaces on the page, like the pauses between inhalation and exhalation, giving us a real experience of what it is to live in and be fully accepting of each moment...moment to moment. Yes, the book is profound but never pedantic or tiring and always affecting. The knowledge and wisdom of a true Master is not easily communicated given the speed, short attention span and negativity of our society, yet it is an achievement that Master Charles speaks with a loving and patient simplicity and clarity that can leave your breathless. This is a memorable and truly remarkable book that may make you check to see if you are 'awake' and have you rethink your life without ever feeling that you are being made wrong. After all, we are in this together. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 16 Feb. 2012
By phil - Published on
Our response to this book has been interesting because we were there--in Mumbai with Master Charles Cannon and our group in the Oberoi Hotel during the experience. We each had premonitions to leave the restaurant just moments before the terrorists arrived. Yes, we experienced the startling response to what we heard and felt, yet at no time were we afraid, and we watched the experience in the confidence that it was our destiny and our role to maintain our most unified state of being. In the aftermath there was virtually no post-traumatic residue. Yet, after beginning Forgiving the Unforgivable, we both put it down, seemingly unable to proceed... so intense and real...yet not stressful... more a "WOW" response in further understanding what our Mumbai experience was...the evolution of our own consciousness. Neale Donald Walsch is right... what we found in this book is what we are becoming! The messages are all here, if you listen.
