Just Listening: A Workshop on Listening As an Act of Justice

January 13 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

I have learned that when we begin listening to each other, and when we talk about things that matter to us, the world begins to change. Human conversation is the most ancient and easiest way to cultivate the conditions of change — personal change, community, and organizational change.”   -Margaret Wheatley

As our communities and planet continue suffering from injustice, hate, and disease, we are now experiencing intense political divisiveness and strained public discourse. Whether in our local community of Cincinnati or on the national and global political stage, civil discourse is necessary for peacemaking and community building. For effective discourse, listening ‒ deep listening ‒ is required. In times of fear and anxiety listening can again become an effective tool. That is why we are pleased to offer as our program: a workshop on listening as the ultimate act of justice.
