The F-word: forgiving in an unforgiving world
"The F Word: forgiving in an unforgiving world” - a talk by journalist and The Forgiveness Project founder Marina Cantacuzino and writer Marian Partington.
Marina Cantacuzino is an award-winning journalist who in 2003 began to collect and share humanising stories from around the world, to provide an antidote to the increasingly prevalent narratives of hate. As a result Marina founded, The Forgiveness Project, a UK-based not-for-profit that uses the real stories of victims and perpetrators to explore how ideas around forgiveness, reconciliation and restorative justice can be used to impact positively on people’s lives.
Marian Partington’s deep interest in healing threads through her work as a homœopath for thirty years, in prisons and schools as a story teller and facilitator for The Forgiveness Project since 2005, and as a writer. Her book If You Sit Very Still offers ‘an extraordinary story of inner movement and growth’ (Rowan Williams).
11:30am in St Mary Magdalene Church (adjoining the Bleddfa Centre), followed by drinks, nibbles and book-signing in Hall Barn.
Free, donations welcomed. Please book your tickets in advance.
