NEXT DATES TBD!
As we face challenging days ahead, it is more important than ever to cultivate compassion, curiosity, and understanding as we seek to connect with others across lines of difference. We invite you to join us for this brand-new virtual workshop series for individuals seeking deeper understanding and connection in a diverse world. Based on the five practices of the Passport to Understanding, this series offers unique personal enrichment for those ready to challenge themselves and grow in a supportive environment.
Join us for a powerful 6-week online experience designed to help you:
practice skills for building stronger relationships with neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family members of different spiritual orientations and cultures, both during this period of social distancing and beyond
learn more about yourself and your own orientation to faith, spirituality, and racial identity
become part of a diverse online community of fellow travelers engaging in the five Passport practices: Be Curious, Venture Out, Welcome In, Stand Tall, and Stand With
Each week, participants will gather virtually for a 90-minute workshop based on one of the Passport themes and choose one of several at-home challenges meant to deepen self-awareness and interfaith understanding. At the end of the program, participants will reflect on what they learned together, what was challenging, and what further steps they’d like to take. Whether you are just beginning your interfaith journey, or are an experienced navigator, this program has something for you.
Passport to Understanding Online is a place to practice important skills for interfaith, intercultural, and anti-racism work. Don't miss out on this exciting, new personal enrichment opportunity!
