Holding the Poles, Entering the Dialogue

WHEN: Thursday, November 13, 2003: Noon - 2:00 pm

WHERE: Garrison Room, Memorial Union

Facilitated by Sandra Lommasson, Director, Bread of Life Center, Davis.

Many of our seemingly "unsolvable problems" are actually interconnected "polarities," which can not be solved, but may be effectively managed. Much of the verbal and attitudinal violence flung at opponents around hot issues arises from this misperception. The tools of polarity management pioneered by Dr. Barry Johnson open another approach which allows the mutually interdependent poles to be held in respectful dialogue while a deeper (or broader) truth than either one by itself contains is made manifest. We'll work together to distinguish problems from polarities, create a polarity map, and practice simple ways of initiating respectful dialogue.
