About The Event
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are” — Anais Nin
In the current climate of politics and the world, our opinions seem more and more divisive and many of us are less likely to budge when we feel strongly about a topic or issue. What shapes our belief systems? How and when do we actually change an opinion? How do we truly keep an open mind and how does an open mind change us for the better? Join us as members of the community share their stories about when they thought they were right, but they learned they were wrong, and how that mind-shift had an impact on their belief system.
Panelists will answer a series of questions about their experiences and then we will open up to questions from the audience and networking with all attendees. Coffee will be provided by First Choice Coffee Services!
