TOPIC: Is Mindful Listening Important for Understanding?
This is this time of political and racial unrest. There are feelings of uneasiness and differences of opinion about the pandemic and how people are or are not “handling” it. Families and friends are embroiled in difference of opinions about all of this. Tonight we’ll take on the question “How important is mindful listening to understanding and effective conversation?

EVENT DESCRIPTION:
For eight years, Beer, Conversation, and Spirituality (BCS) enabled people to gather at safe places to have non-judging, authentic conversations with people from different backgrounds and perspectives.

Eight years later, people, more than ever, still want and need a safe place to have conversations that help them understand one another and learn that we have more in common than separating us. Research tells us that compassion and kindness change our brain more quickly than formal mindfulness practice.

In light of this, we have changed the name Beer, Conversation, and Spirituality to Compassionate Conversations.

Practicing compassionate conversations is essential to healing our divisions so that we can begin to see that we are one human race agreeing on more than we think.

Compassionate Conversations will focus on listening, self-awareness, and learning from one another with non-judgment and non-striving. Compassionate conversations are not easy work, and yet we believe it is what the world needs most right now.

We reserve the 1st 10 minutes for participants to join and will start the conversation promptly @ 7:10.

If for whatever reason you’re unable to attend, PLEASE change your RSVP to NO so that your slot becomes available for someone on the waitlist. Thank you!
