Review

Cannon's book is a study in contrasts. It is the horrific retelling of the 2008 Pakistani terrorist attack on Mumbai that lasted more than 40 hours, leaving over 150 dead and many more wounded. But it is also the story of the -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Very inspiring, with tips for living that each one of us can put into practice right here, right now.

Although Forgiving the Unforgiven tells the story first-hand of the Mumbai terrorist attacks, this book extends far beyond that experience.

If you would like to have a deeper understanding of forgiveness and open yourself to it, give yourself the gift of experiencing this book.

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!

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!

Format: Paperback
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

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.
