WE are co-sponsoring with the Intelligent Conversation group, a lively political round-up.
Check out the first meetup of this new group at www.meetup.com/Republicans-Independents-Democrats-in-Circle-New-Orleans .
We sit in a circle and listen to one another's political views, experience, longings. We create and maintain a safe, supportive, relaxed environment for mature discussion on the deeper meaning of politics in our lives. Politics -- local, national, global -- is as much the reason to gather as it is the pretext. One explicit purpose of the meetup group is to grow, as individuals and as a group, in tolerance and compassion, in ability to listen and to express one's self in measured, non-threatening ways -- even on topics that are potentially explosive. So a double commitment is expected out of group members: both an interest and involvement in the democratic process and a willingness to practice the art of difficult conversation.
