About this course

As much as most of us would like to think holding hands, praying and singing in church is where we will find the relief and peace that we are looking for, it is just not so. Our “instincts” tell us not to look at our hurt, pain and fears from an experience with a sociopath, but to resist them, ignore them, and hope they will go away. In essence, we are hoping for a spiritual bypass. Paradoxically, it is not in spite of our difficulties, pain, and fears that we can find our freedom, but because of them. This “nightmare” experience can become a gift. It is in the madness that we will find the golden opportunities for spiritual growth. It is here we must begin to look for The Miracle.


  • The truth of emotional pain and suffering
  • What is letting go?
  • How to find peace
  • Dismantling the frame of judgment
  • How to find the Miracle in the Madness

About the instructor

Travis F. Vining is an author, teacher, and inspirational speaker who lived the real-life horrors of learning his father was a serial killer. He has overcome many physical and emotional illnesses that included suppressed memories, paralyzing migraine headaches, crippling back pain, and depression as a result of a tragic family environment that included being raised by a sociopathic father who spent 24 years on Florida’s death row.

In a search for the truth, this nightmare became an inspirational journey of forgiveness, faith, hope and miracles. His talks and classes focus on helping others find the Miracle in the Madness, by offering real life experiences with practical application of the process of letting go, which confirms that forgiveness is the great healer of strife, conflict, and upset.

Travis is author of:

  • Transforming Darkness to Light for Giving: Spiritual Lessons from My Life with a Serial Killer

Learning objectives

The primary objective of this course is to help shift the perspective and interpretation of an experience with a sociopath from one of suffering, anger and misery, to one of hope, healing and recovery. The course will present a gentle and thoughtful case for the healing power of forgiveness that will hopefully lead to hope that there is purpose in this nightmare after all.

The course will help with acceptance and the beginning of the healing process (for those who are willing) and present steps that can be taken after the course to continue with the process once trust is established.

In summary, the goal of this course is to provide real hope of recovery based on experience, with a clear path towards healing

    I was very please with this course and have watched it several times now. It was this course that helped me let go of the anger and wanting to seek revenge. I was very, very angry.
    I'll admit I had reservations at the beginning since his relationship was different. However, when you dealing with sociopaths all relationships are affected the same.
