The Irish School of Ecumenics in Belfast, 683 Antrim Road, will mark the Healing Through Remembering Day of Private Reflection on 21 June 2011 from 10 am-4 pm. A quiet space in the building will be open for the public, and materials to aid reflection will be available. On a sunny day, visitors can also enjoy the garden. To see the flyer about the event, please click here. People living in or near North Belfast are especially encouraged to visit.
The annual event was initiated by Healing Through Remembering to acknowledge the deep hurt and pain caused by the conflict in and about Northern Ireland, to reflect on our own attitudes, on what more we might have done or might still do, and to make a personal commitment that such loss should never be allowed to happen again. It provides a voluntary opportunity for everyone in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Great Britain and further afield to reflect upon the conflict in and about Northern Ireland and the future that is before us.
People may also mark the day by visiting Healing Through Remembering’s own event, a reflective opportunity at The Linen Hall Library in the city centre between 10:30 and 2:00pm. There will be a space for reflection and an exhibition, as well as occasional guest readings and song. Tea and coffee will be available.
