or listen to someone get on a soapbox and dominate the conversation by expressing their opinion with such fervor that no one else dares speak, let alone contradict? when we have authentic, respectful conversations we strengthen our relationships and advance our understanding of the challenges, opportunities and solutions before us. living room conversations begin with two people of differing perspectives. each person invites two more friends for a total of six participants. the idea is to assemble a group of people with diverse outlooks to have a rich, meaningful conversation. if you are interested in these conversations but don't know many people with contrasting opinions, our friends at hi from the other side will set you up with someone from across the aisle to help us all understand each other better. the lrc approach lets you have a conversation that actually gets somewhere. living room conversations has more than 50 ready-to-discuss topics (or your can build your own). our conversation ground rules and format ensure everyone gets a change to speak. you need not study up on all of the supporting evidence surrounding your topic because living room conversations are not debates. rather, they are conversations intended to enhance understanding. you and your friends may change your minds on a topic, or you might not. either way, these conversations will allow you to better understand the topic you chose. living room conversations can transform distrust and discord into understanding — paving the way for collaborative solutions. when we have authentic, respectful conversations we strengthen our relationships and advance our understanding of the challenges, opportunities and solutions before us. featured articles apr 28, 2017, by sharon kristjanson living room conversations: a highly effective platform by sharon v. kristjanson. reprinted from huffington post. i hosted a living room conversation for the first time and was delighted with the outcome. we were six people from different walks of life, with a range of experiences and perspectives. we would not normally have crossed paths, much less shared a dinner table and a few bottles of wine together,... apr 25, 2017, by mary gaylord who will save america?
