Practicing with Playback: Curiosity


Wednesday, May 18 at 5 pm in the First Congregational Church Sanctuary

In our daily lives, it can be difficult to not have an opinion about everything and everyone we encounter. Judgment is everywhere. However, can we suspend judgment at times? Can we see that our opinions are often just products of a habit that we don’t have to reinforce? We’ll answer these questions, and more, in this workshop. We will also consider how we can approach problems we encounter without judgment. You will be led in brief exploratory activities and have the opportunity to participate in reflections about what you learned. Please note: This is not a performance.

Attend sessions on drop-in basis or sign up for all 6 if you prefer to buy a ticket bundle. We would love to see you more often and you’ll get $10 off your purchase! Limited space available.
