Uncomfortable Conversations: Tools to be present with our own and other's pain, discomfort and grief.
Clear Mourning and The Peaceful Presence Project and are collaborating to facilitate discussion and education for our workshop attendees to learn ways to be in uncomfortable conversations. We believe our society avoids difficult conversations/interactions and therefore avoids incredible opportunities for growth, preparedness and wonder.
This workshop will offer tangible tools for being present in the face of discomfort, such as compassionate listening. We will also facilitate a thought-provoking discussion leaving participants questioning and identifying what barriers they face and whether or not they are able to be amidst their own or other’s discomfort. Additionally, we will provide language for bridging the divide our society faces in these most divisive times.
Amidst the breakdown and dissection of our current societal norms, the offering will also provide tools to navigate taboo subjects like death and grief. The 90-minute workshop will focus on discomfort before, during and after a death, including the grieving process, and will also include relevant language to address the social strife we face.
