about this program
With today’s climate of polarization and the increasing gulf between “us and them,” we may feel a sense of call to “burst our bubbles” of separation, knowing that would benefit not only ourselves, but the common good. Join presenter Matt Barmore, facilitator Vince Herberholt, and other men for a day retreat to reflect on how an Ignatian approach to dialogue might help us encounter “the other” with mutuality and authenticity.
