Taos Institute: Dialogic & Collaborative Practices in Challenging Times (2023)

EventsDialogic and Collaborative Practices in Challenging Times, Taos Institute, 16-18 March 2023, 12:00 – 3:00 pm EST (New York time, online).

A 3-day online seminar with Taos Institute Vice-President Sheila McNamee and Taos Institute Board Member Harlene Anderson. In this online seminar (three hours each day), Harlene and Sheila introduce and discuss constructionist theory by engaging participants in meaningful conversations. Given the challenges we confront globally, discussions center specifically on the practical implications of social construction. There is ample space for everyone to share, interact, collaborate and support one another as we explore ways to bring these practices into participants’ own projects and personal or professional contexts.

Whether you are familiar with social construction and relational practice or new to these ideas, this intimate seminar is sure to make you feel welcome and inspired. The small-group, virtual environment offers an opportunity to be in conversation with a diverse group of individuals from around the globe, who are working or want to work in relational ways. Three live group meetings as well as a private group discussion forum gives you a chance to forge deep connections and to practice being relational — resulting in a transformational experience.
