The Irish School of Ecumenics is offering the opportunity to take time out and participate in a Day of Private Reflection with an open house followed by a walk up Cave Hill.
The event takes place on Thursday June 21, and this initial Day of Private Reflection is an initiative proposed by Healing Through Remembering. It provides an opportunity for
people to reflect upon the conflict in and about Northern Ireland and the future that is before us. It is offered as an inclusive and positive event that emphasises a commitment to a peaceful new society.
The garden at the Irish School of Ecumenics at 683 Antrim Road will be open along with a quiet room from 10am for private reflection. Resources for reflection will be available and there will be tea and coffee throughout the morning.
The walk up Cave Hill will leave the building at 2pm.
The Irish School of Ecumenics is also hosting a public screening of The Laramie Project on Wednesday July 25. Coffee will be available from 6.30pm, with the film starting at 7pm. Discussion will follow the film from 9-9.30pm.
Written and directed by Moises Kaufman and based on his play of the same name, the Laramie Project tells the story of the aftermath of the 1998 murder of 21-year-old University of Wyoming student, Matthew Shepard, a hate crime that was motivated by homophobia. The film was selected as the Opening Night Premiere at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
This film is shown in partnership with Zero 28 and Corrymeela.
