Conversations That Matter: Taking Steps Towards Healing the National Divide
Cranaleith Spiritual Center, 13475 Proctor Road, Philadelphia, PA
Start Date and Time:
Saturday, March 11, 2017, 9:30 a.m.
End Date and Time
Saturday, March 11, 2017, 3:00 p.m.
Join us for an honest and meaningful dialogue about your hopes and concerns as we navigate in a deeply divided country. Discussion topics will include communicating with people you don’t agree with; being influenced by a culture of fear; and finding common ground amid differences.
Participants will learn how to use Contemplative Dialogue, a practice of seeing things as they are without bias or filters. They will learn constructive ways to communicate with others for the sake of the common good – without the blaming or defaming, so common in our society today. Guests will come away as better listeners and with a process for seeing the humanity in others, even when you disagree.
Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Cranaleith is a nonprofit that offers a contemplative space for all those seeking healing and transformation for themselves and society. For more information go to www.cranaleith.org. The series, Conversations that Matter, seeks to provide meaningful engagement and dialogue with others toward connection and transformation.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
