I’M SPEAKING AT A FREE RECONCILIATION SUMMIT
Some of you may or may not know this about me, but I’ve been fascinated with the topic of reconciliation for years. My mother and I were estranged for years and ultimately made peace with each other. That is the subject of my memoir, Wholehearted, and was the subject of my 2000 book, I Thought We’d Never Speak Again: The Road from Estrangement to Reconciliation. I’m fascinated by what keeps people apart and what makes it possible for them to make peace with each other–or at least inside themselves.
I’ll be a speaker at a terrific free event, hosted by Yasmin Kerkez, at the end of this month, January 26-28: Moving Beyond Family Struggles Summit. I’m one of a number of excellent speakers providing myriad free resources helpful for anyone struggling with a challenging relationship with a family member.
At this time when there is so much divisiveness in our world, we need these resources more than ever.
I’m thrilled to be a part of this free, 3-day virtual event. Come hear me speak!
My interview is one of 15 and will take place on the third day. You also may recognize some of the names among this group of experts centered on family relationship struggles and estrangement. If you don’t yet know them, you’ll be introduced.
Take a moment to check out and sign up for the Summit. It’s all free. All that’s required is your attention.
