Platform Colloquy topic Change

  • Sunday, July 19, 2020
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • zoom call

Join us for this Zoom Colloquy platform led by Ellen Dinerman.

Colloquy is a shared meditative experience focused around a theme that helps us get in touch with our own spirituality. It includes some readings, musical interludes, silent reflection, singing together and a response period. It differs from Platform in two ways:

Where Platform is meant to provide an experience of community, Colloquy is designed to provide an experience of meaning. Where the response period in Platform is in the nature of a dialogue with the speaker, in Colloquy there is no dialogue. The purpose of a "response" in Colloquy is to deepen your own personal experience by verbalizing it - it is not conversational in tone, nor is it intended to persuade or engage anyone in a dialogue. The response period is your only opportunity to speak - just once - so be sure to say what is important to you during your turn. If you do not want to respond, that is fine. 

Colloquy topic this time is: Change.
