They provide an easy structure for engaging in friendly yet meaningful conversation. These conversations are open to anyone and everyone –  no prior training or experience is needed to participate. You may find that you have similar views to those in your conversation or you may find that you are as different as can be. It can be a valuable experience to let go of your expectations of what the conversation should be and focus on what it is in the moment. The National Week of Conversation topics have been chosen to encourage participation and allow for everyone to be able to share their own life experiences and viewpoints as well as actively listening to those of others. \nJoin us for a free online (using Zoom) Living Room Conversation on the topic of Communicating with Care.\nWe may want to communicate with others in such a way that we gain knowledge and bridge divides\, but those conversations don’t always come naturally. Most of us struggle to self-evaluate our communication skills and we might be unaware of words and actions that shut down healthy dialogue when discussing divisive issues. In this conversation we will actively share and explore what works and what doesn’t\, and we will reflect on ways that we can improve our interactions with others.\nPlease see the conversation guide for this topic. Some of the questions explored include:\n\nWhat concerns\, if any\, do you have about engaging in–what are typically considered–difficult conversations (i.e. race\, politics\, religion\, etc.)?\n● How much grace (or courteous goodwill) are you willing to extend in communicating with others?\n\nYou will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).\nPlease only sign up for a place in this conversation if you are 100% certain that you can join. If you need to cancel please return to Eventbrite to cancel your ticket at least 24-hours ahead of time so someone on the waitlist may attend.\nA link to join the conversation and additional details will be sent to you by no later than the day before the conversation. You will need to be able to receive the information sent via email through EventBrite. If you unsubscribe from EventBrite emails you will be unable to receive the essential information for this conversation.\n\n \n URL: CATEGORIES:NWOC ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
