The kind of conversation we foster in our Meetups is properly called Joint Exploration of the World. Each person is trying to understand and operate in our complex world and complexities of ourselves. While we are trying, we know we do not know a lot, and that others in the conversation are explorers too–and perhaps they have discovered something we have not–so well worth intently hearing out. If someone points out one’s error, one is grateful because we trying to be right–not pretending to ourselves and others that we are right. Join our Community of Learners!
