The Power of Dialogue: Finding Solutions that Work for Everyone

Dec 05 - 07 Begins in 1 week
with Miki Kashtan

Dialogue is the alchemical power that transforms mere talking into relational magic. It is the essential ingredient necessary to build and sustain all relationships — casual, formal, intimate, or distant. Embracing dialogue is about transcending the legacy of separation, scarcity, and powerlessness so we can enter the rich and rewarding experience that Martin Buber describes as “a conversation with an unknown outcome.” Overcoming fear, we can authentically express what is of the essence for us. Stretching empathically toward connection, we open to what someone else is trying to say.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
