I believe there’s a deep yearning for A Better Conversation – one that transcends the framework of either/or, I’m right, you’re wrong, of this way, not that. One that helps us get beyond anger and hostility, mockery and contempt, self-righteousness and “I told you so.” One that helps you feel you’re moving, growing and being generative.
There are many people looking for conversations that help them make meaning of their lives in ways that feel productive, cooperative, and provides peace and equanimity. Conversations that foster the patience to tolerate difference and dissonance, the dignity of respecting one’s self and the other, and the deep joy that comes from a heightened sense of being alive.
Many people are looking for ways to discuss topics that enlighten and stretch, that help them understand challenges and conflicts in ways that lead to new ideas, and agree or disagree in a way that opens doors, helps them live peacefully or at least tolerantly – if not comfortably – with their neighbors.
With globalization, with communication across cultures, ages, languages, religions, ethnicities, we face new and complex challenges to our understanding of our world instantaneously, 24/7, 365.
I think people are looking for a way to have a conversation that makes room and welcomes this diversity, this connection, these challenges, and helps us live together more peacefully, respectfully, and lovingly.
I created A Better Conversation to help make this happen. Please join me!
