Sunday, November 18 – 11 a.m. – Holding History – Amy Day
What does it mean to “hold colonial history in the body,” to actively confront the trauma of the past, release it, repair it, and create new possibilities for another narrative to emerge? How do we do this? In this intergenerational service, we will explore ways to process the stories of our collective past through movement, ritual and reckoning. In reconciling our past, a better future can emerge.
