Healing of Memories Workshop

In partnership with the Institute for Healing of Memories in Cape Town, South Africa, the CSJR is happy to be able to offer intensive residential weekend Healing of Memories workshops in Quebec.

These workshops have been recognized internationally for over 20 years  for their power to help individuals deal with trauma. The workshops bring together 20 people, who, aided by trained facilitators, use story-telling, artistic expression and other proven methods to reexamine their lives from a healing perspective.

During 2018 we will be offering two bilingual workshops (French / English) in Montreal (Pierrefonds):

  • from the 22nd to the 24th of June 2018, animated by Margaret Fell from the United States
  • from the 5th to the 7th of October 2018, animated by Michael Lapsley from South Africa

The workshops will be held at the Villa des Arts et l’Ermitage Ste Croix in Pierrefonds / Montréal. Workshops in English and French will be available.

Fees are 300$ for the workshop and 165$ for meals and lodging. However we do not want the cost to be a barrier to your participation. If you wish to participate but the cost is an issue for you, please contact us.. On the other hand if your circumstances permit you may wish to add a solidarity amount to your fees which would be much appreciated.



Places are limited, don’t delay!
