"How to Talk, a Revolutionary Conversation with Fred Newman" NYC, March 28

As the independent movement grows, it's important that we get better at talking with one another. The Hankster highly recommends the upcoming workshop offered by my long-time colleague and political mentor Fred Newman. Please join me on March 28 in New York City.

How to Talk

A revolutionary conversation with Fred Newman.

Fred Newman — who co-hosts the weekly online political dialogue Talk Talk — presents what he’s learned over 40 years as a therapist, teacher, playwright, director and community organizer about the art of talking with people.

In this age of endless chatter — speculation, prediction, opining and Monday-morning quarterbacking — can talk be redeemed as a creative force? How do we talk to get closer to people? Create community? Develop the world? Take a philosophical/political journey with the founder of social therapy as he shares his approach to creating good conversation.

A Stanford-trained philosopher, Newman has long been concerned to liberate the study of philosophy (and philosophical dialogue) from the confines of academia and to make it useful and accessible for ordinary people in everyday conversation and everyday life.
