Author Brian T. Maurer is slated to speak at the third annual Cell2Soul conference in Montreal, Canada, on Saturday, September 27, 2008.
Maurer will deliver his talk “Brokenness and Healing” in the Osler Library of the History of Medicine on the campus of McGill University at 3:30 PM.
“At core, we are all broken people. Some of us were broken from the start, when we were conceived. Some of us were broken by abuse in our tender years, when we were children or adolescents. Some of us were broken as adults, through relationships that soured or just didn’t work out. Some of us were broken by chronic illness: by heart disease, neurological disease, or cancer. We are all broken in some way. Yet, within the realm of our brokenness, we can experience substantial healing — by telling our story, and by listening to the stories of others.”
