What is on the programme?
On Saturday afternoon David Hanna will talk about spiritual revival and share some edited video recordings of Dr David & Mrs Patricia Earle (HTM Directors for the EUME Region) presenting their fascinating story of developing work in Birmingham. It contains many practical lessons and helpful advice and is a good basis for discussion. This was recorded at the London HTM workshop in October.

In the evening we will have a session where we read together other Tribal Messiah testimonies – using the new four-volume publication from Korea.

On Sunday, Dr Michael Balcomb, our EUME Group Chair, will share important new insights and practical guidance – within the theme and spirit of ‘Making it Possible’. There will be a question and answer session also. This will be an excellent opportunity to catch how True Parents are thinking and feeling about this whole area.

Who is it for?
Any FFWPU members are welcome to attend (Second Generation members as well as First).

If you have not made the HTM Resolution offered at the end of August, but would like to do so (with the benefit of the help and explanation that this programme will provide), there will be a short ceremony at the end where you can do that. Our resolve is the first step!

What about overnight accommodation?

We reckon the majority of people will just need to stay Saturday night.

We recommend Hotel & Hostel Arkadia, a clean 2-star hotel, 3 km from the WS venue. A shuttle will be provided between the hotel and the workshop venue in the evening and in the morning, to take you by car.

Beds cost around 30 euros (dormitory) – 40 euros (hotel) per person, per night, breakfast not included. Breakfast is available at 7 euros per person.
Buses Nr. 69 and 77 pass by the Arkadia hotel.

We suggest two options (you will meet these in the online registration form):

Option 1. You inform us that:
a) You reserve a bed in the hostel dormitory (separate brothers and sisters dorms).

b) You reserve through us a hotel room (double occupancy).

Please pay the hotel yourself at their reception desk and check-in with them.

Option 2. You inform us that:
a) You reserve and pay your accommodation yourself, either in this hotel (www.arkadiahotel.fi) or in another hotel, directly through internet booking.

b) You will be accommodated at a friend’s home in Helsinki.

If you do not stay in the Arkadia Hotel or Hostel, you will need to make your own way to the venue. (There is a good public transportation system, please see Helsinki City Journey planner: www.hsl.fi and click on the upper right corner for English language version).

If you will need to stay additional nights (Friday or Sunday, for example), please inform us (again on the online sign-up) and talk to us if you have any particular requests.

Of course, Helsinki is a beautiful and fascinating city – you may want to arrive early or stay longer for some sightseeing!
