Masterclass on Advanced Film-making Skills - Listen Courageously

Listen Courageously is a workshop series designed to make participants more aware of their listening blocks and better able to engage in heart-centered conversations that lead to understanding. The workshops were created following the success of Juliana Tafur's award-winning documentary "List(e)n", which brings together three sets of individuals with opposing viewpoints across three hot-button issues, to listen to each other, connect at a human level and transcend their differences. The film's lessons, as well as the filmmaker's 4-year listening journey, are all unpacked during the sessions, in a compelling program with valuable takeaways on how to engage in positive dialogue across differences.
