Compassionate Conversations (formerly Beer, Conversation and Spirituality) 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.
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. Every month we bring forth topics and questions that provide participants with an opportunity to practice.
For the next 6 months we will be loosely following the book called Compassionate Listening – An Exploratory Sourcebook About Conflict Transformation. The topics in this book are presented by renowned pioneers in transforming the way the world handles conflict through compassionate conversations. The entire book can be found at http://newconversations.net/pdf/compassionate_listening.pdf
TOPIC: Our discussion topic is Reconciliation and how participating in compassionate conversations might help reach reconciliation. Consider this statement in preparation for the discussion: Reconciliation happens when both parties acknowledge the harm they have done — to themselves, others, other groups and other nations. After we know the harm we have done and acknowledge it, we can make our amends and ultimately make peace. We look forward to discussing this topic which is timely and relevant in today’s world!
We reserve the 1st 7-8 minutes for participants to join and will start the conversation promptly @ 7:08.
