In honour of WIHW, the United Religions Initiative in Southern Africa is hosting an open workshop on Compassionate Listening for members of our interfaith community and wider society. The workshop invites participants to become more powerful peacemakers in their families, communities and workplaces, and to learn how to bring the powerful practices of Compassionate Listening into their daily life. The workshop is being led by Susan Partnow, who is the co- founder of Conversation Cafes, Let’s Talk America and Global Citizen Journey. She is the author of Everyday Speaking for All Occasions and co-author of Practicing the Art of Compassionate Listening, as well as certified mediator and apprentice with Dominick Barter in Restorative Circle practice. Through this event, we hope to spread the practice of compassionate listening to a wider community in Cape Town, bringing peace into our homes and communities.

The World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office brings religious leaders of various faiths together, to have an interfaith dialogue based on the scriptures of each religion. Through discussing, comparing and sharing the messages from each religious text, religious leaders can truly start to understand, with an open heart, other religions in a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere.
United Religions Initiative Southern Africa is proud to be associated with this event which is annually convened to celebrate WIHW by the Cape Jewish Board of Deputies, which does extraordinary bridgebuilding work in our community. This year, URI Regional Coordinator Karen Barensche is one of the speakers. Another panellist is Uzair Ben Ebrahim, current secretary general of the SRC at University of Cape Town. Uzair is also an ACWAY peace and harmony ambassador, and a member of a Cape Town youth led cooperation circle of URI. Rabbi Greg Alexander of Temple Israel in Cape Town is the third panellist. Panellists are expected to discuss what racism means to them, and help raise awareness of how embedded it is in our society so that by being aware, we may each in our own way be able to break down the barriers of separation.
