About The Event

How do you speak to people? How do you speak to yourself? When is silence noble and when does it encourage oppressors? Cultivate the art of ethical speech to help repair our world!

Speech is powerful. Is yours aligned with truth? Is it beneficial? In the current, tense political climate where unfriending is not uncommon, ethical communication is paramount. Drawing from world religions, and social sciences, this class focuses on how to achieve clarity and maintain dignity and mutual respect during in-person and social media communications on sensitive, charged topics.

Lecture, discussion, personal reflection, and small group exercises. Welcoming people of all religions, races, ethnicities, political affiliations, national origins, sexual orientations, disabilities, ages, heights, weights, marital statuses, etc.

Includes a handout and an extensive list of books, articles, and videos for continued learning. Bring: brown bag lunch, open mind & heart. Optional: yoga mat, journal and/or computer.
