We invite you to an extraordinary conference to address the roots of fear
based belief systems and stereotypes, prejudice, polarization, enemy images,
and artificial barriers of misunderstanding and distrust that divide us.

Join an international list of over 60 presenters and visionaries, and
hundreds of concerned individuals, to engage in 3-1/2 days of workshops,
roundtables, and focused, facilitated dialogue bridging the divide and
cultivating our capacity for reconciliation, appreciation of diversity, and
peace.
