Conversations From Your Spiritual Core
Conversations about challenging issues require us to see others at a personal, innately spiritual level. This is the essential first step on the path into a tough conversation and, like a spiral, one we need to return to repeatedly. So how do we do this?
Take the first step with “Conversations from Your Spiritual Core.” This interactive online session can help participants prepare for conversations on challenging current issues. We’ll connect to our spiritual core through reflection, storytelling, and deep listening.
In a facilitated breakout room, you will reflect on a time when you drew upon the teachings of your wisdom tradition–religious, philosophical or ethical–to navigate a challenging conversation with another person on a current issue. What gave you confidence in that moment? What helped to shift the conversation from an impasse to a way forward?
A few volunteers in each room will share their stories, while the other breakout room participants will be given the opportunity to practice specific listening skills to identify feelings, values and the impact of the stories on the speakers and listeners.
Note: This online interactive event will not be recorded. Participation is limited to 35 participants, so please register ASAP if you plan to attend.
