Encountering the Other
November 30 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm PST
This graduate course encourages students to identify issues in inter-faith communication, become aware of personal barriers, and develop skills for working with them. Students will be introduced to (1) critical concepts about the politics of identity and cultural complexes; (2) philosophical discussion of inner stances towards welcoming the other; and (3) practical techniques for listening and shared change. Discussions will emphasize Canadian cultural milieus, and faith-based contexts.
This course taught by Rabbi Laura Duhan-Kaplan is open only to students who pre-register through the Vancouver School of Theology. Available in person or via zoom.
