Truth, Reconciliation, and Reparation

April 11 @ 8:30pm - 10:00pm EDT

Presented by Paula Christian Kliger, PhD.

Taking the position that a road paved with truth, reconciliation, and reparation is the road less traveled in our racial and sociocultural healing and our search for human resonance, this presentation seeks to face our toxic history and asks the question “How do we heal?” It also asks the question “How do we move to sharing power and human resonance in our diverse world, given our cumulative trauma of prejudice, discrimination, racism, immeasurable global human suffering, cruelty, domination, oppression, home-grown domestic and police violence, war, and genocide?” Weaving in topics such as the 2014 murder of Michael Brown, Dr. Kliger will encourage us to hold in mind others who remain the “unheard and unseen;” those whose emotional, mental, and spiritual safety and security is not assured—including our Black and brown, Indigenous, Asian, and Jewish communities, from younger to elder, gendered, transgender, and nonbinary neighbors. She aims to foster our ability to integrate the destructive, cumulative, and collective trauma our ancestors passed on to us as well as our inheritance of their adaptive strengths and gifts. The ultimate goal of this presentation is to arise out anew, wiser, more ably exposed, and emotionally ready for Truth, Reconciliation and Reparation to take hold within ourselves, and then, to expand the inner communal circle to see and be with the Truth residing in others.
