Details: How do you get an apology and, more importantly, how do you get an apology that works? Most of us are rarely satisfied with words alone; ultimately we are looking for responsible action, a change in policy, behaviour or sentiment to follow an apology. Adjust your spirit, shift your lens and join others in this workshop examining Forgiveness as it relates to furthering justice and building compassion. Learn how to listen actively, to bring dignity to apology and how forgiveness plays a key role in conflict resolution at the personal, communal and national levels.
Led by respected activist and U of T Alumnus Peter Bruer.
