With Rich Forer, author of BREAKTHROUGH: TRANSFORMING FEAR INTO COMPASSION
March 24 @ 5:00 PM
Jefferson Unitarian Church (in the Chapel)
14350 W. 32nd Ave, Golden, CO
Rich will articulate the fundamental roots of suffering, especially as revealed through the tragedy of Israel-Palestine, which has become an archetype or model for how we create a world of suffering for self and other. He will illuminate the unconscious thought processes that shape our world and that induce so many who ordinarily believe in justice to support injustice; and will show the self-destructive nature of the unexamined mind that projects its suffering onto the other and then blames or scapegoats the other for its suffering.
FORMER WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT, HELEN THOMAS
Anyone with an interest in the Israel-Palestine Conflict should not miss an opportunity to attend one of Richard Forer’s talks. The insight he brings to this seemingly endless dilemma has the ability to transform the entire debate and create a just resolution for all sides.

To my knowledge, there has never been a book that takes on the daunting challenge of describing and deconstructing the unbelievably complex emotional and intellectual journey from prejudice to compassion on this issue… until now!

I have been working in the Israel/Palestine arena for nearly 20 years. I believe that you and your book are an answer to our prayers over many years. May God speed it, and may it be dispersed and read widely across the English-speaking world.
