Nikkei Internment Memorial Centre in New Denver
Mir Centre for Peace
In these times when the media inundates us daily with new revelations of political and moral corruption, how do we as a society move beyond anger and retribution? What spiritual values can help centre us in the ground of compassion and forgiveness?
The Journey Toward Forgiveness
The Mir Centre for Peace and Convergence Writers' Weekend proudly present Joy Kogawa.
Joy Kogawa is the renowned author of Obasan and recipient of the Order of Canada. Join us for a series of presentations throughout the West Kootenay where Kogawa will discuss the personal crises that forced her to confront very challenging questions. Kogawa will be speaking about the harrowing experiences that led her to write her memoir, Gently to Nagasaki.
