Why I Wish I Lived in Vancouver (Or, an Update from the Wosk Center)

If any of you in the Northwest or in Western Canada haven't yet heard of the Wosk Center for Dialogue in Vancouver, you're in for a treat. The Wosk Center makes me wish I lived on the other side of the country.

I just received an update from Nicole Mah of the Wosk Center, outlining some of their upcoming activities and programs. A Dialogue Network meets each month to dialogue about dialogue, which is cool enough - but also their 2004 Dialogue Maker's Series is launching on Sept. 10 with a dialogue inspired by the Dalai Lama's visit to Vancouver. Click below for the full announcement.

The Dialogue Network will be starting up again on September 7. Held on the first Tuesday of every month, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm, the Network is a space for practitioners to reflect, share experiences, explore theoretical issues and entertain new ideas about facilitating dialogue. If you are a student or practitioner of dialogue-based processes, join us to explore the possibilities of dialogue about dialogue. This network is free, however, pre-registration is required. To reserve your seat, please call 604 268 7925.
