I Am a Bridge: Training Programme

June 5 @ 9:30 am - June 7 @ 4:00 pm

Memory Bridge retreat

The “I Am a Bridge” training programme teaches the three skills of presence that transform ordinary listening into transformational attention–the kind of relating to others that opens us both to new depths of possibility and meaningfulness.

These skills are not “tools in a toolbox”, nor techniques for managing behaviours. Skills of presence are movements of heart, mind, and consciousness. They are a way of being with others in which we risk vulnerability by letting go of our certainties, expectations, and the need to be in control.

And we learn these skills from each other, in relationship. Many participants describe the experience as life-changing.

This three-day workshop will be hosted by the Jean Vanier Research Centre and will be held from June 5-7, 2020.
