Acknowledging the Past/looking To the Future
Posted September 1, 2005
For Gurukula Alumni and Parents
A representative panel of North American leaders wishes to humbly invite Gurukula alumni and parents to meet with us in Alachua, Florida at the New Raman Reti Temple on Saturday, September 10, from 2 pm until 5 pm. This is the day before Radhastami.
The purpose of the meeting is to come together, acknowledge the past, develop groundwork for healing, and envision together how to move forward to build a healthy and supportive Krishna conscious society.
The meeting is the third of several get-togethers to be held in North America. The first meeting was held in New York City the day after the NY Rathayatra; the second was held in Los Angeles the day before the Gurukuli Reunion.
Present will be representative GBC members to offer their apologies for the mistreatment and abuse that many of our young people suffered as children in ISKCON schools and communities. We will continue with a facilitated discussion and will include short updates about the Chapter 11 Confirmation and the Child Protection Office.
Please come and share your thoughts, hopes, concerns, visions and ideas.
