Conversations That Matter: Focus on Women

Conversations That Matter: Focus on Women, A Global Perspective

This year, we will gather around the lived stories of women, who carry the struggle and the strength, the wisdom and the transformative grace embodied in the wounds of our time.

The refugee crisis is a human crisis. Behind the statistics are people filled with unique life experiences and dreams for the future. This session will explore the challenges facing migrant and refugee women from such places as Argentina, Guatemala and Congo.

Facilitator, Sharon Browning, Director of Just Listening for the Common Good…, (a movement that arose out of the belief that listening is a transformative act of justice) will lead us in the practice of conscious, intentional, non-egoic and non-judgmental communication.

For those who have attended Sharon’s programs before, this will be a deeper dive into the Just Listening process.

By the end of the day, you will be able to:

  • Identify core personal and social impediments to listening
  • Gain essential listening and speaking skills
  • Practice new, compassionate, ego-less communication
  • Converse with new friends from diverse backgrounds and circumstances

Cost includes lunch. Some scholarship assistance available.
