Course Description

ONLINE: My Neighbor's Voice: A Model for Deep Listening in Our Divided Culture brings participants together in a moderated format to discuss community questions that belong to all of us. We will work through five categories of questions: American culture, our society, health and the environment, civic rights and responsibilities, and political thought. These categories provide the framework for each week. During our class, each participant will have an equal opportunity to answer a question and then listen without question or commentary to their neighbors as they answer a similar question within the same category. At the end of the exercise, we open up the floor for discussion around the questions and/or the experience. Our goal is to give participants a concrete experience in the practice of listening that they can then take into their communities to be a part of the process of bridging the divides in a positive, respectful and hopeful way. | Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 30.
