What is truth? What is wisdom? (Morning Session)
How can we find them during chaos and confusion? Living in the time of COVID-19 gives all of us a strong and clear taste of uncertainty. Our welfare is on the line and we are trapped at home with our questions, our vulnerabilities, and the vulnerabilities of others.

Real Dialogue for Difficult Conversations (Afternoon Session)
Real Dialogue is a finely honed structure for dialogue and inquiry that creatively uses conflict and accurate witnessing without necessary resolution or compromise between equals in relationships. Real Dialogue clears a path in order to transform chronic, repetitive hostilities into open communication and mutual discovery. This process is being applied in business, in the home, in organizations, and cultural and social situations in which individuals or groups encounter conflict and hostilities. Real Dialogue is designed specifically to facilitate situations in which there is repetitive conflict as a result of emotionally triggering dynamics that fall outside our awareness.

Polly Young-Eisendrath, PhD, is a psychologist, writer, speaker and Jungian analyst who has published 18 books (translated into 20 languages) including The Self-Esteem Trap: Raising Confident and Compassionate Kids in an Age of Self-Importance and The Present Heart: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Discovery. Her most recent book Love Between Equals answers the question “What IS love, anyway?” She maintains a clinical practice in Central Vermont and hosts the podcast ENEMIES: From War to Wisdom that provides a fresh look at human hostilities and what to do about them. She is a life-long Buddhist practitioner and a Mindfulness teacher.

* The late Kay Fowler was a longtime Jungian Analyst in Tucson and a great supporter of SAFOJ. Every year we present a special program in her memory.
