I look forward to being with you at the Monastery this week. We will also have a special guest with us, Sheila Katz, Ph.D, who is the author of Connecting with the Enemy: a Century of Palestinian-Israeli Joint Nonviolence. She received a doctorate in Middle East History from Harvard University where she specialized in Palestinian-Israeli relations, organized programs on Middle Eastern women, and taught for eight years.
Dr. Katz lived in Jerusalem for six years where she founded one of the early feminist groups and a network for Palestinians and Israelis to confront tough issues together. Sheila also just finished sitting the February month long at Spirit Rock that I taught. She’s engaging, heartfelt and wise.
