About the event

Building Beloved Communities Through Peace: Mimetic Structures of the Applied Spirituality of the Immanuel Approach

– with Rev. Dr. Julia Robinson Moore and Rev. Ricky D. Moore

Racial and ethnic divisions continue to plague nations around the world, and peacebuilders of all walks and faiths continue sustaining communal harmony amid ongoing legacies of trauma and oppression.

Tuesday, October 29, 5 to 8 pm

This lecture by Rev. Dr. Julia Robinson Moore, Associate Professor of Religion at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, will explore the revelations of neuroscience, mimetic theory, and applied spirituality to address the intergenerational legacies of racial and ethnic trauma.

Wednesday, October 30, 10 am to 1 pm

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Moore and her husband, Rev. Ricky D. Moore, co-founder of Moore Grace Ministries Inc. and Building Equity, LLC. Together, they will present insights from their ongoing community-engaged project, Equity in Memory and Memorial of Enslaved Burial Grounds (E2M), which brings together groups of descendants of enslaved people and those of enslavers to transform these trauma legacies. The workshop will engage participants in the Immanuel Process of self-awareness and transcendence for restoring beloved communities.

This event is hosted in partnership with The School of Leadership, Ecology and Equity, Saint-Paul University, committed to addressing systems of oppression, restoring equity, and creating sustainable, thriving communities. Building Beloved Communities Through Peace engages spirituality for the healing of intergenerational and racial trauma, contributing to the equity mission of the School and to CICR’s mission to empower conflict-resilient communities and peace practitioners.
