Building Bridges: Healing Dialogue Series (2)
Time & Location
About the Event
Throughout this interactive online dialogue series, we will deepen our understanding of ourselves and others and discuss ways we can cultivate relationships across cultural differences. One of the core beliefs underlying this series is that we all hold an essential piece of the collective wisdom that is needed by the whole. With the intention of weaving together a more diverse, inclusive and influential movement for social change, we will explore successful models for building resilience in disadvantaged and marginalized communities.
More information about this series is included on the facebook event page. Each of these sessions will begin with a short meditation, an introduction to the dialogue process, and group agreements.
How Do We Connect?
Our second dialogue will explore how our narratives inform how we connect with others. We will look at how our culture supports or limits us in connecting with those who are different.
Questions may include: - What stories do we carry with us about those from other cultures? - Why is seeking to understand historical trauma and ongoing systemic oppression essential for connecting? - What common values and interests might help to bring us together? - What bridges can be built that may lead to healing in my community?
