The Healing of Memories Institute, in conjunction with the Franciscan Renewal Center, will host a Healing of Memories Workshop for U.S. Service Members and Veterans from Ocotober 7-9 that will provide participants with a safe experiential and interactive way to address anger, loss, grief and guilt. Veterans who have attended this workshop say that it was a major step in their healing from their psychological and spiritual wounds.
The workshop will be facilitated by Fr. Michael Lapsley, an Anglican missionary priest who founded the Healing of Memories Institute in South Africa. Fr. Lapsley is well known to veterans and service members in Arizona, having led this workshop in the Valley for the past 9 years. (He had a private audience with Pope Francis in 2019 at the Vatican to talk about his peace and reconciliation efforts).
The workshop is free of charge to any service member or veteran, including all meals and two nights lodging. Transportation will be provided to those who need it.
Any service member or veteran who is interested in the workshop may find out more information or register free for the workshop by contacting Mike Wold, US Navy Veteran and workshop coordinator, at 651-687-9767.
