This workshop is live online via Zoom. A recording will also be available to registrants to view at their convenience.

How do you have healthy interactions and build authentic relationships with those who are experiencing the world very differently than you? Often it can be challenging to understand different perspectives and how to best provide care and friendship to individuals in different cultures.

In this workshop, Rev. Carla Christopher Wilson will provide an overview on some primary cultural values of multiple Asian, African, South American, and Native Cultures. We will work to appreciate cultural differences without appropriating or exploiting them. Attendees will be encouraged to identify areas of privilege in their lives and given ways to de-center their own cultural experiences. Learn tangible ways to open doors for dialogue without tokenizing the other. Explore spiritual practices that create space and encourage open heart connections.

This workshop is crucial to anyone looking to increase their cultural competency to build authentic relationships. It is a good baseline for increasing your own understanding to be more effective in personal and professional relationships. In volunteer work, you will encounter people of many different cultures. PRC volunteers are especially encouraged to attend, and can register for free by contacting PRC.
