Presented by Roberta Wall
Join Roberta for insights on conversing and connecting with others across religious, political and cultural divides. She draws from her work in the service of peaceful transformation of our world, most recently through Nonviolent Communication Trainings in the Mideast (West Bank and Israel). In today’s politically charged world, possessing the tools and techniques of deep listening and reflecting each others’ humanity is ever more important for our community, our family and for us as individuals.
