In our world — and in our nation — many hard realities exist. But too often, people try to avoid dealing with them. Denial is rampant. Denying hard realities means we fail to solve the problems. It also causes psychological and even spiritual problems.
This is the topic of Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s April 2013 TV interview.
Three wise, insightful guests explore the topic:
John Van Eenwyk is an Episcopal priest, a Ph.D. clinical psychologist, and Clinical Director of the International Trauma Treatment Program. He has special insights and skills to help people deal with severe trauma, such as war and torture.
Debe Edden has been a teacher and youth worker, and now a trainer and volunteer coordinator for our local Hospice program. Since 1990 she has worked with Heartsparkle Players, a Playback Theatre troupe based in Olympia.
Art Vaeni has long served as pastor of the Olympia Unitarian-Universalist Congregation. He and the congregation engage the community in thinking and taking positive action in the world around us.
