The Henri Nouwen Society in presenting a three-day conference entitled “Exploring the Inner Journey through the Lens of Henri Nouwen” in June 2016 at the University of Toronto Mississauga Campus.
One specific goal is to reach a broad international audience of 500 attendees providing them with a transformational experience.
We are bringing together leaders from diverse sectors of religious and secular life – representatives from the Catholic, Protestant, and Evangelical – the Emergent and Traditional Churches of today. We have chosen leaders who are living out the legacy of Henri Nouwen in their own spheres of influence.
Several CBC programs have expressed interest in interviewing our speakers and recording this event for their audiences across Canada and North America, thus extending the footprint of Henri Nouwen in the world today. We plan to record all the sessions for distribution, extending the experience to those who were not able to attend in person.
