The Journey of Forgiveness: Destination Peace

[Update 5/21: We just completed the workshop last weekend and I think it’s safe to say it was AMAZING and POWERFUL for all involved. Azim was wonderful and held a beautiful space. We’re already talking about his return – possibly this fall!]

[Update 11/22/2013: While we weren’t able to bring Azim back this year, we do hope to bring him back for another workshop. Do let me know if you are interested!]

“After 17 years working in the realm of forgiveness, I see that most people are either in resentment about what has happened to them, or in guilt about what they have done to another. We cannot be mired in either of these two places as it harms our psyche and our life, and limits our ability to live life 100 percent.

“This workshop will help you rid both resentment and guilt so you can live life at its zenith, and enjoy a healthier and a prosperous life – within your relationships, family and community.”   – Azim N. Khamisa

 Are you holding on to resentment?

  • Is there someone who owes you an apology?
  • Is there someone who has treated you poorly?
  • Is there someone who still deserves punishment or justice?
  • Is there someone/thing you are still angry at?

Have you forgiven yourself?

  • Do you have feelings of guilt or shame over something you’ve done?

The Journey of Forgiveness: Destination Peace…

…is about living life fully and with joy.


The workshop shows you how to heal broken relationships and bring a deeper, more intimate connection in existing relationships. It is about living life at a higher frequency – living life with happiness, meaning and exuding love and compassion to all the people in your lives and beyond.

“Nothing matters more than forgiveness, and no one understands forgiveness better than my friend and hero Azim Khamisa. What he has learned, he now teaches. And what he teaches, may all of us learn.”   – Marianne Williamson

“Azim’s life and his life’s work are one and the same: examples of the courage of a mind and heart ablaze with the utmost faith in the inherent capacity of human beings to forgive one another, which results in a world infused with love, peace, and a level of respect that honors the dignity of all beings.”   – Michael Bernard Beckwith

Who is Azim Khamisa?

Hailed by dignitaries such as the Dalai Llama, Former President Bill Clinton, and Al Gore, Azim carries his inspirational message of forgiveness, peace and hope into a world in desperate need of each.

Following the loss of his only son Tariq in 1995 to a senseless, gang-related murder, Azim chose the path of forgiveness and compassion rather than revenge and bitterness, and this amazing choice led to the establishment of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation and the subsequent forgiveness movement which has reached millions.

Because of his powerful story and message, Azim is a highly regarded and respected leader and a sought after speaker nationally and internationally. He offers training seminars, keynote talks, leadership consulting, and corporate workshops. Having given 400 keynote address speeches all over the world – including to an audience of 300,000 at the “Stand for Children” rally in Washington D.C. in 1996 – Azim has received more than 60 regional, national and international awards.

“I experienced deep healing during the intensive. I enjoyed connecting with others who are committed to healing themselves and the planet.”   – Lara Eisenberg, School Counselor

“This morning you touched the hearts of many students and teachers at Montgomery High School. I’m sending you personal thanks for the grand work you are doing. Your work this morning may change the way many of our students think and feel. As the students left for class, I heard words like “Powerful” and “Amazing.” Our students listened with open minds and open hearts. Your book and your speaking today has touched my heart and soul. After reading your book, I spent hours wondering where you found the forgiveness and love. I cried when I read your book, first tears of sadness and sorrow then tears of joy and wonder as you healed yourself and others with forgiveness. I truly hope that you will return to Montgomery High School to help us on the journey to educate students to become peaceful world citizens.”   – Marsha E. Litwiller, Librarian Montgomery High School
