Forgiving the Unforgivable

After watching her Glasgow TEDx talk, “Unbroken - Speaking the Unspeakable,” I knew I had to reach out to Madeleine Black and invite her on my podcast. We both share a history of sexual abuse and, on our own terms, have found effective ways to heal and transcend our pasts. Ever since the overnight success of Madeleine’s article on forgiveness, which was published on The Forgiveness Project website in 2014, she has been sharing her remarkable story with audiences everywhere. Her debut memoir, “Unbroken: One Woman’s Journey to Rebuild a Life Shattered by Violence,” empowers people to speak up about traumatic events that stop them from living life to the full. In this episode, I chat with story-healer Madeleine about why she chose to forgive the two men who gang-raped her when she was just 13 years old and how going public with her message shattered all shame - for good.
