Forgiveness Project Exhibit Week-long Experience

Tee Kasper, ARCWP, will attend a retreat on forgiveness presented at the Siena Retreat Center in Racine, WI. The retreat schedule is posted below. As we lead the church into the 21st Century, may we reflect on, and absorb into our souls, forgiveness, peace and reconciliation in our world. May we raise our consciousness beyond our tribal religions, celebrate our diversity, and embrace one another as sisters and brothers in a global village.

In conjunction with hosting the International Forgiveness Project Exhibit, Siena Retreat Center is offering a five-day retreat experience to reflect on the themes of forgiveness, peace, and reconciliation in our world.  Including a variety of themes and led by diverse presenters, this week promises to be a rich opportunity for reflection and spiritual growth.
Topics to be included are:  forgiveness and trauma, forgiveness and local communities, brain research and spirituality, global peacemaking and reconciliation, and forgiveness in some of the world’s spiritual traditions.  Each day will afford the opportunity for facilitated discussion in an integration group.


The retreat experience begins on Sunday, July 31, 2016, with the Exhibit Opening and concludes in the afternoon of Thursday, August 4, 2016.
