Conscious Communication Workshop

The Moving Forward program is offering a multi-session workshop on Wednesday evenings, from May 10 to June 21 to help people stay connected with partners, family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers in the heat of difference. Facilitator Karen Fogliatti, experienced mediator, counselor, and educator with a Ph.D. in philosophy of education, will help participants learn more about themselves and others through exploring differences, instead of shaming and blaming and being stuck in self-righteousness. The workshop aims to teach people to use differences to actually grow in understanding and intimacy and to experience the joy hidden in conflict. Karen is currently both an associate with the Conscious Communication Institute and a counselor with Moving Forward at the Men's Resource Center. The workshop is open to both men and women and costs $180-230 (sliding scale -- materials included). For more information, please call Karen at (978) 544-3844 or e-mail
