Fetzer's Work

At the Fetzer Institute, they believe in the transformative power of love and forgiveness, and this belief shapes all of their work.

We learn more about love, forgiveness, and compassion through rigorous scientific research, we partner with those working to bring love and forgiveness to the center of individual and community life, and we share powerful stories from all this work. We are also interested in the spiritual dimensions of individual and community life. We seek to understand how various contemplative practices affect individuals and groups and how spiritual pathways and religious traditions are at work in the world.
