Phenomenology of Conversation with David Whyte & Peter Block

What happens when you try to have a real conversation and why are they so difficult? How are silence and vulnerability forms of invitation to authentic encounter? Does anyone survive a real conversation?
 
David Whyte will speak with Peter Block and Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp about the phenomenology of conversation. This event will draw on David’s poetry and attendees will be invited to be active participants in this emerging conversation. Common Good Collective is hosting a series of Abundant Community Conversations with authors, social innovators, change agents – people who have dedicated their lives to helping citizens develop their capacity to produce their own collective well-being. Join us for this important conversation.
 

This conversation will be held on Tues, Sept. 20 from 1-2 pm EST.
