ICCD Believes We Can!

ICCD believes many people are ready to approach this time of chaos from a deeper place but who may not be as familiar with contemplation. It is our desire if participants know of others–their colleagues at work, in organizations or in positions of influence who would resonate with the goals of the program and are open to the contemplative dimension in their life–to invite them to participate. Since its beginning in 2002, the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue (ICCD) has had extensive experience inviting people to engage the impasse in their lives through processes of communal contemplation and dialogue.

Why Four Days?

This program does require a commitment of time. The program is designed to deepen one’s interior life through contemplative processes and from this contemplative perspective to integrate the skills learned. The time is needed to achieve the outcome: to learn to engage persons with different worldviews including, family, friends, and colleagues  in hopes of healing the negative effects of the polarization we experience. The time frame may vary but it is usually from early afternoon the first day to after lunch on  the fourth and includes evening sessions.
