“Healing journeys: Responding to the World Map of Pain” September 21 - 23 at the Welgelee Conference Centre in Paarl.


The conference will bring together healing of memories practitioners and allies from different countries and contexts we have worked with through the years. People living in, and having lived through different experiences of pain caused by individual and collective traumatic conditions will share their stories.

Healing practitioners, academics, artists from diverse backgrounds will share their experience, knowledge and collective wisdom to give guidance on ways we can respond to the individual and collective pain in the world. 

Participants of the conference are bringing experiences from Angola, Burundi, Congo Brazzaville, Cuba (Ambassador to SA), Germany, Japan, (Consul in Cape Town) Lesotho, Luxembourg, Malawi,

Namibia, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Syria, South Africa, USA, Venezuela (Ambassador to SA), and

Zimbabwe representing 17 nationalities.

Participants will deliberate on issues affecting the daily existence:  WAR and its impact; Root Causes and antidotes to Extremism; Poverty,  inequality and exclusion from the political projects. Participants will also have an opportunity to share the work they are presently doing and find ways how we can deepen Solidarity and Healing  among peoples of the world using our creativity and ingenuity.

The scale of human pain has never been greater.  The onslaught on the resilience of the human spirit never more intentional. It calls for a collective ethical, moral and spiritual response to sustain hope to create a more compassionate, just and caring world.
