Join Ed Tick, PhD and UUSA member, to honor the healing that has touched the many war-torn souls on his and Kate Dahlstedt’s 20+ year path of guiding international reconciliation journeys to Viet Nam for veterans, survivors, activists, and pilgrims. Experience this healing through Ed’s new book, the “poetry of witness” born of these journeys: Coming Home In Viet Nam (Tia Chucha Press, November 2021). Listen to poems and stories which illuminate the power to transform “foes” into “friends” and “war” into “peace,” within our hearts, minds, and larger world. Learn about practicing “spirituality in community” as the direct antidote to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Come together here to raise healing consciousness and to support independent publishing and Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural by getting your own (signed) copies of this powerful book of poetry for you to share this holiday giving season. At: ON ZOOM ( & at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Amherst: 121 N Pleasant St, Amherst, MA 01002 (*masks required for in-person attendees)
When: Tuesday, December 7, 7:00-8:30pm ET
