INTENSIVES: July 13-15, 2018 — HICKS — This weekend, skills-based course provides an opportunity for seminarians and social justice workers to identify and improve their ability to communicate across various cultural orientations. “Communicating across cultures,” in this context, is the act of understanding the assumptions, values and preferences of another human being, and with that knowledge, construct acts of communication that builds bridges of understanding and integrity. In this course, every act of communication – even within similar cultural groups – is a cross-cultural encounter. The course will be highly experiential, emotionally intensive, giving learners multiple opportunities for real-time engagement with difficult expressions of cultural conflict.
