Mending Matters: The Art, Heart, and Healing of Forgiveness
September 2 or 3 to September 5
For all attendees – See the Pelican Reunion Conference 2022 Welcome Letter
From self-care to Island care, from the microcosm to the macrocosm, come find your unique way of Mending what Matters to YOU in these current turbulent times. Whether it is through arts, crafts, play and games with old and new friends, work projects for the Island, solo or group walks on the rocks, playing with our precious “Pels In Training,” or an exploration of Desmond Tutu’s The Art of Forgiveness, we will offer opportunities to explore the endless ways we may mend what matters within ourselves and in our World. After the isolation and disorientation of these past few years, what better time than now to reconnect in our love of Star Island and the bonds of committed work we have shared to help float this beacon of light and hope in the world. May we find one another and re-orient ourselves in our labor of love this Labor Day Weekend… and invite new friends and family to join us!!!
