12th Annual Kateri Peace Conference, 2010

Our conference this year is on August 20 & 21, 2010.
Featured speakers: Ed Kinane, Fr. Jerry Zawada, Diane Reiner and Joyce Reeves.
Place: Kateri Shrine, Fonda, New York.

Is our 21st century society effective? Sustainable? A success? Economies are collapsing and workers are losing their jobs. The sum of the parts no longer seems to be a whole. The earth is experiencing both man-made and natural disasters, oil spilling in the Gulf of Mexico, erupting fire and ash in Iceland. War and earthquakes have destroyed cities both near and far. Many of us yearn for peace, security and a sense of well being, yet find ourselves frustrated wondering how balance might be achieved, how harmony might be realized.

This year’s peace conference, “A Question of Balance?” is attempting a synthesis of right brain and left brain activities and understanding. Coupling traditional lectures on current political issues with workshops on inner exploration and self growth (some based on the work of Joanna Macy) along with a Tibetan gong vibrational bath, we hope the day will be trans-formational, providing a new heartfelt understanding of the world we live in and our place in it.

The Kateri Tekakwitha Peace Conference has its roots in Closing the School of the Americas/WHINSEC.
