From Darkness of Heart to the Heart of Forgiveness: Beyond Sexual Victimhood

Event Details

The Cardus Centre for Cultural Renewal, in partnership with Conversations Cultural Centre, Canadian Institute for Conflict Resolution, and Saint Paul University, will host this evening event in Ottawa, Ontario.

No sector of society is immune to sexual abuse or the darkness of heart into which it pulls children, families, communities and subsequent generations. Three well-known Canadians reflect on their journeys from the heart of darkness to the heart of forgiveness.


David Frank: Director, Ahousaht Holistic Center, Former Indian Residential School Student

Michael D. O'Brien: Internationally-Acclaimed Author and Artist, Former Indian Residential School Student

Garnet Angeconeb: Secretary, Aboriginal Healing Foundation Board of Directors, Former Indian Residential School Student
