These simple exercises are aimed at practicing some elements that can be helpful in cultivating civil discourse. Facilitator Suzan Shipley: I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. I graduated from San Francisco State College BA in Art. Since then I’ve performed in modern dance, taught creative movement and created art in fiber, ceramics, calligraphy and mixed media graphics. I’m the mother of two daughters who have become strong, independent women. Two divorces and a 35 year-3rd marriage taught me I needed better communication skills. #2 Conflict Styles "Conflict Styles" is a lively one-hour playshop that will lift awareness of effective choices in handling, maybe even learning from and enjoying talking with persons who may have different or very opposing ideas. Facilitator Marybeth Webster: I am a retired art therapist and long-time peace activist. I was born in Colorado 88 years ago. I have 3 adult children and one deceased son. During, between, and after two divorces, I taught, counseled, was a scientific illustrator, did graduate studies, lived in Central America, Holland, and Hawaii and 5 US states. My great joy now is leading SoulCollage(R) workshops and working to preserve the planet for my grand- and great-grandkids.
