Strengthen your capacity to connect with the humanity of each person whose path you cross, whether or not you share the same values and behaviors. As we move beyond a mindset that dehumanizes the ‘other’, opportunities for building bridges emerge; we seek instead to listen, to feel compassion for, and to see ourselves in the ‘other’ and the ‘other’ in ourselves.
Cost: $35-$75, based on ability to pay
