Featured Speakers:  


The disconnection offered by our Perceptual Bias and the need to reconnect

with Pardeep Kaleka
Executive Director, Interfaith 
Session Info:

My workshop will focus on the way our brains manufacture our personal truths and how these truths shape our current state of reality, especially as our perceived reality related to our mental and spiritual health. I will also discuss how we must have the courage to challenge our own lens, and productively challenge others in order for us to connect a divided world.

Speaker Bio:

Executive Director of Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee and The Zeidler Group, Published Author of “The Gifts of Our Wounds,” award-winning columnist with Milwaukee Independent and Clinician specializing in utilizing a trauma-informed approach to treat survivors and perpetrators of assault, abuse and acts of violence.
A native of Punjab, India, Pardeep Singh Kaleka grew up in Milwaukee, and served as a police officer and educator in the inner-city of Milwaukee until the shooting at the Sikh Temple in 2012, where a white-power skinhead took the lives of 7 parishioners, one of them being his father. In the aftermath, Pardeep’s call was one to help individuals and community heal, connect, and transform.
