Event Description

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.
