Radical Forgiveness History
The International Institute for Radical Forgiveness and Leadership (IIRFL) is who we are now, an organization based on, and backed by, the Radical Forgiveness movement founded by Colin & JoAnn Tipping.
In 2019, Colin Tipping chose Godfrey O’Flaherty to be the Custodian and owner of the Radical Forgiveness work globally. Colin officially handed over all the Radical Forgiveness Intellectual Property, as well as the business of Radical Forgiveness as a Global Enterprise, in a touching ceremony curated by JoAnn Tipping.
Godfrey has an esteemed background in organizational strategy, coaching and leadership — and he looks forward to growing the Radical Forgiveness community.
As IIRFL, we look to build on the 26-year foundation of the Radical Forgiveness movement. Our vision encompasses raising consciousness, enabling coaches and empowering organizations, individuals, families and communities through the radical forgiveness methodology, to live an empowering life free from past hurt and pain.
We look forward to being a partner on this journey with you.
“We are privileged to have a talented and dedicated Radical Forgiveness team working with us in moving this change forward, all with roles that contribute to a refresh and restart of a beautiful journey ahead. More of this to come, as we grow and re-establish our community”.

The Tipping Method
Radical Forgiveness is based on tools in The Tipping Method, namely:
* The Radical Forgiveness Worksheet
* The Radical Acceptance (of another) Worksheet
* The Radical Self-Forgiveness/Self-Acceptance Worksheet
* The Radical Transformation Worksheet
* The Radical Manifestation Worksheet
* The Radical Self-Acceptance Worksheet
* The Money Consciousness Worksheet
These tools are designed to awaken your Spiritual Intelligence, which is the ‘mind’ of the Higher Self. Each step becomes an intellectual exercise, created to activate deeper connection and thought, beyond those that exist in the rational mind. We emphasize the importance of doing the work in these exercises to facilitate better understanding and greater self-empowerment. We understand that you will feel resistance — but encourage you to push through the challenges to achieve the best outcome in each stage.
The Satori Board Game
Satori is a state of sudden enlightenment of one’s consciousness. The Satori board game is a transformative healing tool and it creates the platform where individuals have the opportunity to raise their own level of consciousness, learning and applying the radical forgiveness tools in a practical and safe way to let go of their emotional burdens — forgiving yourself and others in the process — easily and quickly. It promotes laughter, enlightenment, insight, emotional healing, spiritual and personal growth.
“This is a therapeutic healing game, not a toy. I have played it many times and have benefited from it each time. It has opened up areas of my emotional healing that I thought had been dealt with long before. I love this game and always feel better after playing it!!!”
“Truly amazing to learn about the things that have been affecting my life that I totally forgot about! Very deep and transformative healing tool, and a divine way to get in touch with your feelings. Highly recommended to see what’s really going on within that still needs to be brought to the light.”
“My daughter recommended this and it is a very thought provoking game, it makes you look at yourself and get rid of old stories and create new ones.”
“A fantastic fun way of addressing problems in an inspiring new way”.
