Oct 31-Nov 1, 2015, 2-Day Workshop: ZPO 3 Tenets applied to Retreat Nov 2-6, 2015, Auschwitz Bearing Witness Retreat, Auschwitz/Birkenau, Oświęcim, Poland 

Most of each day is spent sitting by the train tracks at Birkenau, both in silence and in chanting the names of the dead. There is time to walk through the vast camps, do vigils inside womens and childrens barracks, and memorial services. Prayer Services from various religious traditions are offered daily. Participants meet daily in small Council groups designed to create a safe place for people to share their inner experiences. The whole group meets in the evenings to bear witness to oneness in diversity. Although Auschwitz, the Place, is the main Teacher for this retreat, experienced Spirit Holders meet each day to reflect on the retreat flow, schedule, events and make appropriate modifications if necessary. The Spirit Holders for this retreat will include: Ohad Ezrahi, from Israel, Bernie Glassman, from USA, (co-founder of Auschwitz/Birkenau Bearing Witness Retreats), Andrzej Krajewski, from Poland, Eve Marko, from USA, (co-founder of Auschwitz/Birkenau Bearing Witness Retreats), Fleet Maull, from USA, Ginni Stern, from USA, and Barbara Wegmüller, from Switzerland……read more Nov 8, 2015 1-Day Workshop: How ZPO Tenets Manifested at Retreat Nov 9, 2015 Travel Home
