Part 2 of a four-part series of classes exploring strategies for overcoming polarization in our personal, professional and political life.
The classes at Lifelong will be in a larger, seminar-style setting. Each month will be an introduction to the habits of thinking and ways of feeling that make us more comfortable and effective when dealing with that specific dimension of conflict. The seminar will accommodate up to 20 participants, and the space is physically accessible to all. Participants may sign up for just one or any combination of monthly topics.
