Touchy subjects tackled

At Brave Conversations, facilitator Leigh Sloan is cultivating a community of people who meet monthly to learn from those who think differently on a variety of topics.

“We believe that by leaning in to conversations that are controversial, we will become better thinkers and better communicators– ultimately creating a better community,” she explained.

At the Sept. 26 meeting, they’ll work on conversation sharpening, matching people with different views to help each other stretch their perspectives in one or more areas.

Come with a friend and an open mind. Learn to enjoy honing the art of this kind of constructive, face-to-face, rather than Facebook, conversation.

The event starts at 6 pm. Beverages and food are available for purchase until 7 pm. The group will be in the inner room of the Coffee and Communitas building, 12100 Old Seward Hwy, Anchorage, Alaska 99515.

  • I wish they had something like this in the Wasilla area.

  • I wish I was able to meet there with everyone but that is just too far away. If it could be expanded to include emails or phone or have a Chapter in the Soldotna area, I would participate.

  • It is a great time. I am glad each time I go. When presented with a statement where I agree with a “5” and my partner rates at “1” with disagree, I am SO excited! Maybe I’ll learn something. Maybe I can present my side well. But either way, I don’t have to fear that I’ll have to be labeled Hitler in the next minute, as it seems to be in vogue these days! Please come! It is a pleasant reprieve from the echo chambers FB often seems to put us in.

  • could this be a new way to tell lies!
