POSTPONED – Workshop – “Dare to Understand: How to Listen to Others Whose Opinions Differ from Yours” with Judy Rosemarin
September 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this workshop has been postponed. A new date will be announced soon!
Just because you can hear does not mean that you are listening. Listening requires intention, attention, courage, and curiosity. Listening is first and foremost to understand, not to necessarily agree with another. In today’s culture, there is family fracturing, Facebook un-friending, and an increased sense of “I am right and you are wrong.”
In this highly interactive one day workshop, you will learn how to change limiting viewpoints, practice new skills so that you can improve your understanding with others, and build greater understanding and community instead of perpetuating silences and fractured relationships in your life. Note: This is NOT a course in politics, for different opinions can be found anywhere.
Members $35; Guests $50
Advanced registration is required. To register, please contact Maggie Determann at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-874-5210 x1113.
