Blessed Unrest in the Four Directions, November 1st OISE Auditorium 

November 1st evening event will be a public celebration, “Blessed Unrest in the Four Directions”, is a dialogue with the larger community. It will begin with keynote reflections from wisdom leaders from all four directions. These include Diane Longboat, Mohawk Six Nations, Pauolo Wangoola, Busoga Uganda Africa, Eimear O’Neill, indigenous Ireland and Madhu Suri Prakash, India’s Ghandian activist. It will be convened by one of the founding directors of the Centre, Professor Emeritas Ed O’Sullivan.

Invitees to the gathering have all been part of its twenty year history. October 31st’s evening opening for invitees will be artful and inspiring. A memorial for the legacy of Dr. Anne Goodman and our other Centre elders will be part of that reverent opening. On Friday November 1st and Saturday November 2nd, generations of those committed to the Centre’s vision will gather to talk in circle about the next 20 years forward. Sunday November 3rd there will be open space for new connections and planning.

“Toronto”  means “the Meeting Place” in local First Nations languages. Located in Toronto, The Transformative Learning Centre hosts graduate courses, summer institutes, certificate programmes, community events, gatherings, conferences and daily interactions. All of these foster transformative processes at the social, cultural, personal, institutional and community levels. This happens with great grace and great fun. People are forever changed by being present in this stream of movement. Some of the people closely involved in the Centre’s development surround the web in the photo above. These people represent many ages and places. Together they hold a space for a vision of what is needed to move through this time. This is a time of momentum within and without the Transformative Learning Centre.

Proud to be a part of the The Neighbourhood Arts Network
