Living in the Tension Gathering – 3/19/12

We will be continuing our educational series on conflict resolution for our next Living in the Tension gathering on Monday, March 19th. Michael Pierce will be sharing generalizable principles and models for conflict resolution from his career as a professional mediator. The sessions will help to better equip individuals to step into productive conversations and develop skills to address conflict and improve their interpersonal relationships.

We will be having pizza at the beginning of the gathering this week since we are hosting the Soulforce Equality Ride while they are passing through Chicago. We will be meeting at our usual place on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Room 120 at 7pm. The next and final gathering in this series focusing on conflict resolution will be on Monday, April 9th.

We hope to see you there.

Much love.
