In the fall we look forward to an examination of the places we learn the things that make us ourselves:
Learning from Surprising Places
The series culminates in a week in which many women present stories of the places they learned from to create a Story Quilt. Can you think of a surprising place that you learned an important lesson that shaped you?
In the spring we turned our attention to the subject of communication, exploring different aspects of this subject in depth. See below:
From Monologue to Dialogue: Building Community
