ABSTRACT
There can be no real understanding between individuals from different backgrounds so long as neither has a clear picture of the other, what each really thinks and believes in, hopes for and feels. Good relationships and a healthy future cannot be founded on prejudice. CTRC is nurturing new "imagined" communities across former and present divides; real and imagined divides which shape individuals realities. We are bringing together people from across physical and psychological boundaries of segregated existences these mixed groups form a symbolic representation of our society. In quiet ambient surroundings we conduct a private truth telling process, imbued with compassionate listening and testimonial acknowledgement. This Healing the Memories process is a restorative process, not a retributive process. It can be described as a private truth telling process, it is not a public truth commission.
