You must attend Part 1 to attend Part 2
Listen Courageously is an immersive virtual workshop designed to make participants more aware of their listening blocks and better able to engage in heart-centered conversations that lead to understanding. The workshop was created following the success of Juliana Tafur's award-winning documentary "List(e)n", which brings together three sets of individuals with opposing viewpoints across three hot-button issues, to listen to each other, connect at a human level and transcend their differences. The film's lessons, as well as the filmmaker's 4-year listening journey, are all unpacked during the sessions, in a compelling program with valuable takeaways on how to engage in positive dialogue across differences.
Listen Courageously - Part 2: In a unifying experience that allows us to connect with people's stories, we have participants internalize the importance of listening to ‘see’ past stereotypes. We work to reframe our perceptions about people who might look different from us, and take participants back to their first experiences with bias - on the basis of gender, socioeconomic status and race.
Juliana will be joined by several facilitators, including Carlton Evans, Doak Bloss, Valerie Smith and Tamiko Rothhorn, who have joint experience in social justice, education and mental health.
