2019 Convergence Writers’ Weekend, WRITING TOWARD FORGIVENESS

June 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – June 8, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Silverton Gallery
Wide Spot c/o Zion United Church Box 72, Silverton BC V0G 2B0 Canada

The Convergence Series brings together widely varied streams of intellectual and spiritual knowledge within the context of open-heartedness. As converging creeks create a mighty river, this integration of different ways of knowing yields something that is stronger, deeper, and more complex than any single watercourse. Convergence wisdom is creative, rooted in relationship, and designed to change individuals, inspire communities, and help heal the world.

This year’s theme is “Writing Toward Forgiveness.” Friday evening will open with a 7 p.m. performance entitled “Big Water Coming,” presented by Marya Folinsbee & the Valley Gems Theatre Troupe. Following this will be the public lecture by acclaimed author Joy Kogawa on the weekend theme.  Saturday will feature writing workshops with instructors Leesa Dean and Keith Liggett during the day and an evening integration session with Joy, Leesa and Keith.  While the Friday evening event is open to the public, all other events are for registered participants only.
