Building bridges with others is a necessity, yet the prospect can sometimes be daunting. Sitting down with the intention to deeply listen, learn, and connect offers us an opportunity to grow.
“Building Bridges” is a bimonthly gathering designed for conversation, connection and community building around relevant topics that inspire passionate, heartfelt sharing with one another. A thought-provoking TED talk, on a topic of current interest, provides a foundation for discussion.
In July we will watch the TED talk “The Future You,” by Pope Francis. Pope Francis notes that many of us believe a happy future is impossible. This may be partly due to our “culture of waste,” which even involves people, cast aside for whatever reason, in a system where money is the primary focus.
We’ll watch the TED talk, and then share our thoughts in facilitated discussion. The intent is not to convince others of our viewpoint but to become more open and curious about our fellow human beings on this earth and more willing to engage with others as we move through our day-to-day lives.
