Please note: this free event will be held online Zoom. Registration closes on April 8. Register for the discussion.

This four-part series, in partnership with Catamount Arts, offers a hospitable space for participants to take up the hard questions of our time. Each session, and its requisite prework, affords deep reflection on civility and focuses on the tools needed to engage in civil conversation in a divided country.

Guest speaker: Bryan Blanchette, Abenaki Singer-Songwriter
Topic: Acknowledgment and Welcome. Grounding Virtues.

On Being’s “Better Conversations Guide” a guide created by Krista Tippet and the producers of “On Being” as part of the “Civil Conversations Project”, will serve as our framework.  Each session will require deep listening of an assigned “On Being” episode and will culminate in a conversation led by a different guest speaker each week.

Registered participants will receive a welcome letter on Friday, April 9th which will include all the materials, syllabus, and Zoom links.

Register for this free talk.
