“Repair might be a consequence of healing. One might think that one is prepared for a task at a certain moment but when the task comes, it’s more complex, it’s more demanding. But I guess the key is to be able to encompass your inner process of courage, healing, and repair with the work that you’re trying to do on the outside.”
– Frank Pearl, Moderator, Instituto Aspen Columbia
The process of repair looks different across communities around the world. Navigating the intricate path is a journey unique to each community, shaped by factors like culture, stories, and the depth of wounds endured. Amidst this complexity, a pivotal question emerges: How can we best equip these communities for the process of healing and restoration?
