Debate to Dialogue
This interactive community workshop offers a different approach to engaging with people who hold contrasting views. Instead of a debate between two sides defending their positions, dialogue uncovers complexity and cultivates connection by inviting participants to share their personal experiences, values, emotions, and even hesitations. Gain insight into cognitive and emotional processes, practice strategies for navigating heated exchanges, learn to share views in a way that can be heard, and discover the joys of dialogue!

Our community has become so polarized that we rarely have the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations with people who hold different views. If we do get the chance, the exchange often becomes a shouting match. Dialogue offers a different approach. Instead of a debate with two sides speaking from their positions, dialogue invites participants to share their personal experiences, values, emotions, and even hesitations. Dialogue uncovers complexity and cultivates connection.
In this very interactive workshop, participants will:
- Gain insight into their own cognitive and emotional processes
- Practice strategies for navigating heated exchanges
- Learn to share their views in a way that can be heard
- Discover the joys of dialogue!
