Our connections matter. We live in a time of great change and upheaval. Wherever we live and whatever our community, one thing unites us all: our relationships with each other. As human beings, we need to know that we matter to others. We thrive when those relationships are robust and healthy and suffer deeply when they are not. Using a methodology called “A Small Group”, this workshop will explore essential conversations, and the power of dialogue and restorative conversations to re-connect when life’s inevitable disconnections occur. The training will inform leaders in education, social service, community organization and workplace settings.
