Bridging Divides: FREE in-person Video & Discussion

The latest installment in the monthly video and discussion series “Bridging Divides” will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, at the Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library, 1757 Ashland St., Ashland.

The discussion is entitled “I Don’t Know.” A prerequisite to bridging divides is being able to not be so certain about, and cling so tightly, to our perspectives.

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides.”
— Tony Schwartz

Are you feeling concerned about the growing divides occurring in our world? The first step, and one that each one of us can do, is to “depolarize within.” We do this by learning about our human “operating systems,” becoming self-aware and then making different choices about how we behave.

Learn how to “depolarize within.” Watch insightful videos carefully selected to explore ways to depolarize and then engage in facilitated discussion to help integrate new perspectives.

Bridging divides is held at 7 p.m. every second Wednesday. Free admission, donations welcome.

Date & Time:

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cost:

Free
