Welcome the
Stranger Within

We have become estranged from ourselves. So what might happen if we lovingly approached the exiled parts of who we are, those parts of ourselves that are in pain, or are suppressed by trauma, or are locked away with shame? And how might we begin to do that? In essays, lectures, spiritual services, and creative laboratories, Jericho draws on broad expertise in trauma, gender, atonement, and Judaism to guide people into fuller and more authentic ways of being in the world and being in community.

“You shall love the stranger, because you were strangers in the land of narrow places.”
