dialogueinstituteOnline Dialogue Course (through Dialogue Institute)
An Online Course in Critical Thinking and Creative Compassion to Create Deep Dialogue
This course intends to meet a great challenge: to empower people to live in society with genuine respect and mutual care for self and others. Human relations break down when worlds collide. Violence and abuse arise in ethnic conflicts, racial hatred, gender issues, ideological confrontations, and ecological indifference. This course teaches content and skills that help transform these challenges into opportunities for a deepened sense of one’s own worldview and an awakened awareness of the worldviews of others who share a different worldview from one’s own.
