crazy beautiful conversations

from debating to relating

Our Crazy Beautiful Conversations workshop brings together teens and adults to learn how to reach across barriers to create the connections we need to navigate the future.

“Genuine culture is made from the dreams of youth and the visions of elders”

Michael Meade

Our society is becoming more divided with every news cycle. Yet the challenges we are facing as a global community require us to communicate, collaborate and compromise. We need to be able to see beyond the confines of what we believe we know, to reach out and bridge the chasms that have opened up between us.

At Crazy Beautiful World we are starting this work by connecting across the generations to nurture open and compassionate conversations where hot topics can be discussed without getting burnt!

We call our process Compassionate Co-Inquiry. Watch the slide show below to find out more.

– the neuroscience of connection and disconnection

– how to avoid thinking in stereotypes

– the power and beauty of full attention

– how to harness our differences to create intergenerational solutions to our shared challenges
