Living Room Conversations
The peaceCENTER’s Living Room Conversations begin with a wisdom circle — often San Antonio’s Peace Laureates — discussing a question while others, arrayed around them in a circle, listen in. After about 20 minutes, the entire room arranges itself into small groups, and using the wisdom circle as a model, discusses the same question among themselves. There are usually three questions — and at the end, each small group has a minute or two to share with the entire assembly the wisdom gleaned in their group. Watch!
