Peace & Justice Conversations: Compassionate Listening in Alabama
March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
After decades of citizen diplomacy to some of the world’s most
contentious hotspots, The Compassionate Listening Project undertook its
first domestic journey in January 2020 when 24 peacemakers traveled to
the Deep South. Meeting with people across the political spectrum, from
Black civil rights activists to white conservative Republicans, the group
offered the healing practice of Compassionate Listening. Joel, Nancy Jo
and Scott will share narratives of people they met and will offer
personal reflections on how the journey helped them deepen their
understanding of their own biases.
Joel Berman, Nancy Jo Chabot and Scott Dickman, all NH residents, have
made multiple Compassionate Listening trips to Israel-Palestine and are
part of an ongoing CL practice group in Concord. Joel is a certified CL
facilitator as well.
