The Rev. Barb Sajna, of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, is offering an opportunity for the community to come together to explore how to talk about challenging subjects that often divide us. The course is a Teaching Company course and is taught by a professor at York University. Each segment consists of a lecture followed by exercises to help listeners “try out” what they’ve just heard. Some of the lectures focus on the layers of communication, how the unconscious and conscious minds function, challenges to effective communication, talking to build relationships and how to handle differences and disagreement.
The class began March 8, but will continue weekly 10 am until noon at St. Luke’s, 2336 Canterbury Lane, Sister Bay.
