My new blog on The Huffington Post UK looks at the relationship between forgiveness and health. It is entitled A Hug’s Message to Tragedy: “Move On!”

Tony Lobl is a Christian Science practitioner and a blogger on the relationship between consciousness and health, and how spirituality plays a role in bringing out more harmony in people’s lives.
