Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration
Angela Dews, Gary Singer
Fee by donation; no registration required
January 19, 2014
10:00 am - 02:00 pm
In this half-day retreat, we’ll share what arises when we hold Martin Luther King, Jr.’s courage and profound commitment to community and connection while exploring our own potential to see things as they are and still choose love.
Dr. King stood up. Can we find the courage to do so? Can we stay with the queasy and ambivalent feelings and say “this too, this too”?
