Restoring Community

On these pages you will find:

  • live session agendas
  • document downloads
  • preparatory videos, readings and reflection questions

Use the "Next" and "Prev" buttons (below) as well as the menu bar to navigate.

While these materials comprise the pre-work for the event, the vast majority of the learning occurs during the live sessions with your instructor and fellow participants.
