Description: In the wake of the Presidential election, courage is needed to address and reduce conflict and hostility. How do we create compassion when tensions have so divided people in the public square?
This workshop, facilitated by DI Executive Director Rebecca Mays and Nazarene Christian pastor, Per Faaland, will help address that question, inviting you to develop your own dialogue skills and capacity for compassion in engaging others across deep difference. We will explore basic principles and techniques of dialogue and nonviolent communication, and practice tools for dealing with polarization and prejudice in our own unique contexts.
