The Institute for the Healing of Memories will be hosting its fifth International conference, “Healing journeys: Responding to the World Map of Pain” September 21 - 23 at the Welgelee Conference Centre in Paarl.

The conference will bring together healing of memories practitioners and allies from different countries and contexts we have worked with through the years.

People living in, and having lived through different experiences of pain caused by individual and collective traumatic conditions will share their stories.

Healing practitioners, academics, artists from diverse backgrounds will share their experience, knowledge and collective wisdom to give guidance on ways we can respond to the individual and collective pain in the world.

The scale of human pain has never been greater. The onslaught on the resilience of the human spirit never more intentional. It calls for a collective ethical, moral and spiritual response to sustain hope to create a more compassionate, just and caring world.
