This colloquy is planned to offer participants the opportunity to use music, collage, participatory and meditative methods to reflect upon and share some of the experiences and meanings offered us by this past twelve tumultuous and ethically challenging months. Those who want to venture into 2018 planning, are offed a simple method in personal planning they can take home to complete.
And later, at evening, you are all welcome to BSEC New Year’s EVENING through MIDNIGHT New Year’s celebrations for all ages.
