Reading and discussion of The Civically Engaged Reader and his latest book, Taking Action.
This session will be held in the Warch Campus Center Cinema.
In the workshop we will look at Compassion in our community utilizing the tools and techniques created by the Center for Civic Reflection and its Director Adam Davis.
The practice of civic reflection brings a group of people with common work together to talk about the motives, principles and purposes of their civic engagement. Gathering in a hospitable place, they share a meal followed by a facilitated discussion. Carefully selected, short but thought-provoking readings anchor each discussion. Facilitators ask questions rather than make pronouncements. They listen and help to clarify issues and thinking rather than deliver long speeches.
