More discourse than lecture, Practical Wisdom Workshops offer you the opportunity to engage with the subject matter, question and discuss with like minded people. Join the discovery of practical wisdom and how it could be applied in daily life. Sessions are limited to 20 attendees.
Dialectic - discourse that uplifts and enlightens
How many of our waking hours are spent in conversation? How much of that conversation is uplifting and enlightening? How might that proportion be increased? The art of discourse or conversation is one that can be greatly improved with guidance and practice. In this session we will learn some basic principles that we can follow and we will also gain some practice that will help us to spot the pitfalls that can so easily hinder the development of an uplifting discussion.
