Engaging Impasse and Difference – CANCELLED
Sunday, May 31
10 am – 3 pm
This one-day reflective experience will attempt to help us overcome our urge to fight or flee when we encounter gridlock in our relationships, our work, or just society. We’ll discuss evolutionary thinking and living and our own processes of development and growth. How do we engage others who might be at a very different point of awareness or consciousness from ourselves? Part of our experience together will be practicing communal contemplation. Insights used in this workshop have been adapted from the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue in Detroit, MI.
Shared meal included.
Facilitator: Art McDonald
