Project: Forgive

Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss. Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end.

A Course In Miracles International today confirmed that Shawne Duperon will be in Wisconsin to film forgiveness-centered interviews with some of the participants at the celebration events of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14 -23, 2012).

Shawne Duperon, a six-time EMMY® Award winning producer, is currently making the documentary “Project: Forgive”, a film about humanity's capacity to love and forgive.

The proposed documentary has virtually morphed into a forgiveness movement, due to the popularity of the profoundly moving introductory trailer posted on the fund-raising website, Kickstarter.

A Course In Miracles International President, Baron Wolter van Verscuer welcomed the idea of the film saying, “We are, of course, thrilled that forgiveness is now being more broadly recognized as the solution to the needless pain and anguish that characterize the human condition. The true freedom and nobility of the human spirit can never be fully known or experienced by a mind bound by judgment, condemnation and grievances.

“As Jesus says in A Course In Miracles,” continued van Verschuer, “'The unforgiving mind is full of fear, and offers love no room to be itself; no place where it can spread its wings in peace and soar above the turmoil of the world. The unforgiving mind is sad, without the hope of respite and release from pain. It suffers and abides in misery, peering about in darkness, seeing not, yet certain of the danger lurking there.'”

“In contrast,” added van Verschuer, “Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss. Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceivable? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light that it reflects. And so the journey which the Son of God began has ended in the light from which he came.”

“To spread this awareness is the reason for International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace. Movies and campaigns such as Project: Forgive can only benefit humanity, and should be wholeheartedly supported,” concluded van Verschuer.

Initial funding for Project: Forgive is being sought through Kickstarter; and the project will only be funded if at least $100,000 is pledged by Monday, April 23, 2012 at 8:33 a.m. EDT.
