I met Spanish priest Yago Abeledo while he was on sabbatical in the US, studying at Eastern Mennonite University's Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. For several years, Yago has tended a remarkable website: Breathing Forgiveness: Embracing the Giant Wound in the Naked Now. Yago's labor of love is dedicated to promoting healing in all its forms, particularly healing the legacy of slavery. In today's world, slavery manifests in many guises, some quite subtle. It was my great privilege to work with Yago to produce this two-part interview for the Anti-Slavery Campaign Interview Series, conducted in Spring 2013.
The interview is entitled: The Journey of Transcending Human Narcissism: Awakening to Our Real Identity. To read either or both interviews, click the links below.
