Description

For over a decade, Carl Wilkens has been sharing stories around the globe to inspire and equip people to “enter the world of The Other.” Wilkens will share about recent visits to Rwanda as well his personal stories from the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi. The “firing” of new brain pathways and our ability to reframe the “other” are some of the powerful tools and practices he has learned from survivors, perpetrators, and his own journey with PTSD.

About the Lecturer: Carl Wilkens is the only American who chose to stay in Kigali, Rwanda throughout the 1994 genocide. He and his Rwandan colleagues worked together to save the lives of hundreds. His harrowing yet hopeful journey weaves together stories of tremendous risk and fierce compassion in the midst of slaughter. Each year he returns to Rwanda with students and educators to see for themselves how people are working together to rebuild their country and rebuild trust.
