A Community Conversation is an invitation to bring diverse groups of people together in public places to enter into deep, meaningful conversations in an atmosphere of dignity. Based on the Conversation Cafe model that creates a space to move from small talk to big talk, Earth and Spirit takes it to the next level and asks What would it take to move from talk to action?
The conversations that emerge can become a catalyst, as you explore the strengths of your team, spark innovative ideas, foster leadership and recognize untapped potential. With a focus on social change, conversations can inspire ordinary citizens to become extraordinary stewards for social change within their community.
Invite Earth and Spirit Community Conversation facilitators to your school, organization, or board retreat. Conversation topics can be customized for each audience.
A Community Conversation Series: Befriending Aging & End of Life
Earth and Spirit hosted a series of monthly Community Conversations in collaboration with the Victoria Multifaith Society and the Open Door Sanctuary from January to May 2018. Each month had a different theme, offering a unique opportunity to explore aging, death and dying as part of living vibrantly. From entering the forbidden conversation, to exploring aging in our culture, the role of elder, our legacy, transforming grief, and even life beyond life.
The events offered an invitation for people of all backgrounds, beliefs, faiths and cultures to learn from one another, to share their wisdom, resources, perspectives and tools for aging well. It was a chance to build resilience and to demonstrate that the wisdom is always in the room.
We began as strangers and yet through the course of our conversation we revealed such intimate stories and feelings. There was tragedy, sadness and great joy. There is a richness with being able to share meaningful conversations. They take you somewhere you might not go by yourself.
