“Dialogue Across the Divide” – Conversation Training

Have you ever been too nervous to engage in conversation with neighbors, friends, and family around refugees or other potentially divisive topics? Or maybe you have no trouble diving in, but you find it rarely goes well? Do you want to learn more about ways that we can use dialogue to create a welcoming community for all? 

Then join Soft Landing Missoula as we explore “Dialogue Across the Divide” and gain new skills to more comfortably exist in this challenging space. This two-session training will be co-facilitated by Robert Rivers and Fernanda Barreto Krum with Imagine Nation Brewing and Betsy Mulligan Dague with the Jeanette Rankin Peace Center.  Together, they bring decades of experience working in situations of conflict at home and abroad to promote peace and healing in communities. Mary Poole with Soft Landing Missoula will also cover a few ways to use your new skills to promote a safe and welcoming home for refugees here in Missoula. Attendance will be capped at 20-25 to provide a quality interactive experience for all participants so register below!
