April 29 Chapman & April 30 Closing Reception – the last two April GAPM events

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves.
– Mahatma Gandhi

Hi everyone,

This coming week brings the final two events of the April 2014 GAPM film series, Remembering the Past toward Healing our Future.

Tuesday, April 29 at 7p, please join us at Chapman University for An Evening of Holocaust Remembrance that includes a screening of the film, “Numbered”. The program also includes a Musical Tribute, Lighting of Candles and a talk given by the filmmaker, Uriel Sinai. Just like all of our other events this month, we will be asking you to contribute your heart felt thoughts on one of the cards that features a photograph and story of a genocide survivor or victim. Messages from all events become part of the mobile exhibit “Everyone Has a Name” on display the following evening at the Closing Reception.

Details of the Wednesday April 30 7p Closing Reception are as follows. We wanted to offer a time to get together and connect after six very powerful events. Integration of experiences is an important part of any journey. Please join us in the University Synagogue Social Hall as we gather for reflective conversation, and begin to think about how we can collaboratively move forward, addressing the question: what’s next?

If you plan to attend on April 29 or April 30, R.S.V.P. now ».

After April’s focus on the commemoration of genocides, stories from survivors, and trans-generational trauma, in May, Living Ubuntu will shift the focus to recovery.

Please plan to join us on Saturday, May 17, 9:30a – 12:30p in Santa Ana for Intro to Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE), an introductory level experiential mini workshop on chronic and traumatic stress, vicarious and trans-generational trauma, compassion fatigue, and recovery. 

It’s been an incredible month so far. Thanks so much for all of the support and engagement.

See you Tuesday :)
