Learning to Talk Across Divides

February 17, 2018 at 9:30 am - 3:30 pm EST

Providence Hall Community Room

1 Sisters of Providence
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, IN 47876

Open for registration. Registration deadline: February 14, 2018.

People have difficulty holding a conversation with persons whose opinions differ from their own. At a time when civil discourse seems a lost art, this workshop explores how to listen, to hear, and to learn from each other with genuine respect. Examine how our world views are formed, what helps us change them, and how we can expand our capacity to hear other opinions.

Registration fee $45 includes lunch.
