Men’s Discussion Group – Past, Present, and Future
PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING UP!
This discussion group is for men who enjoy stimulating, analytical conversation. The goal is to explore new ways of looking at the world we live in while creating kindred connections.
A featured article will be provided before each group meeting, which should be read beforehand. (see URL below)
I will lead the facilitation of this discussion. Keep in mind this is not your chance to prove how smart you are, but rather to share your unique point of view on the topics at hand. Come with an open mind, willing to learn new perspectives and honor different ideas. Guidelines:
Listen without judgment –All perspectives are equally as valid as others, even when they seem “way out there”.
Avoid A-B conversations – Sometimes you’ll be tempted to challenge another participant’s statement and begin questioning them directly. This begins a back-and-forth conversation that excludes everybody else.
Watch your airtime – Everybody needs the chance to share their perspective to make this work well. When we hog the mic, it causes others to disengage, which is a loss for all of us.
Come prepared to discuss the following prompts:
•What is the main thesis of the article?
•What is your perspective?
•What do you agree or disagree with?
•What role does this information play in our past, present, and/or future?
