The Rescue Project
The Rescue Project is an exhibit and forum that explores different perspectives about the idea of rescue. Included in this discussion will be people who talk about rescue from a political/cultural point of view and therapists who discuss rescue from a psychological position.
This is a collaborative event of SVFJ with Leora Kahn, photojournalist from New York City who has interviewed and transcribed the narratives of rescuers from sites of genocide and mass violence, Larry Hames, director of Brattleboro Community Justice Center, and Grace Mukagabiro Speck, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide.

MERCY, a talk by Nora Riley
On January 17, 2010, Nora Riley gave a talk on "Mercy" that focused on a particular aspect that she named as Essential Mercy, a synchronistic act of saving the physical life of another. She connected this collective paradigm of mercy to ordinary mercy that is expressed in our everyday lives by showing up in a felt engagement with the other. As the French philosopher, Immanuel Levinas suggests, we have an ethical responsibility to be present for the" Other." It is our willingness to show up in this relational field that allows for Essential Mercy to arise in the larger collective field.

THE COLOUR OF RAIN: THE WAY OF SADNESS, a talk by Nora Riley
In April 2008, The Southern Vermont Friends of Jung presented a talk by Nora Riley, LICSW, entitled The Colour of Rain: The Way of Sadness. This talk approached sadness from a new point of view —as an active and alive process, not to be abandoned, but to be embaced and to be seen as developing new forms of consciousness that can provide meaning and direction in one's life
