Healing Broken Relationships

We have all experienced broken relationships, and we are all striving to heal old wounds. Sharing our experiences and the lessons we have learned can be risky, and it is a necessary step that allows us to heal. Call of Compassion NW is holding space for our community to come together and share their truths. Storytelling becomes the foundation to break generational cycles of use, abuse and trauma for greater peace and compassion in our lives and communities.

Four diverse storytellers begin the day sharing how they dealt with relationships broken by intergenerational trauma, racial violence and oppression, gender identity and sexual exploitation. As we witness their courage in sharing their stories, we will be inspired to then gather in small groups with the intention to meet each other with greater compassion and share our own stories.

Following lunch, we will engage in a process called Open Space, a practical way to focus on issues of greatest importance to you. We expect sessions like:

· Healing broken relationships with ourselves and others
· Talking with kids about race and healing racism
· Groups focusing on youth addiction, mental illness and trauma
· Issues of gender identity and sexual orientation
· Ways to humanize homelessness

Join us! This summit is breaking new ground with the Power of Storytelling, and the recognition that It’s Up To Us to make change – now!
