“The goal of healing is both wellness and wisdom.” Kenneth S. Cohen
Most of us experience spiritual and emotional wounds while living, being hurt is part of the price of being alive, and we aren’t always able to heal fully. We move on and live well, but often there is a part of us that is still hurting. We may have been hurt by people we trusted, or by racism or homophobia or by the strictures of religion or the horrors of war. Today at 10:30am we will explore the healing that comes when historical wounds are named, heard and honoured. What is the mysterious alchemy that transmutes the ashes of pain into the phoenix of spirit?
This morning we also have the joy of honouring this years’ Mark de Wolfe Social Action Award winner.
