dc.description.abstract Our nation is currently facing a massive number of issues. We have learned to foster inequality, discrimination, and judgement towards ourselves and others. Our inability to connect with our environment, with animals, with our fellow human beings, and with ourselves is putting our nation in danger. The importance of connection is being seen in many different disciplines. To examine connection research will be gathered through a session on active listening, an event for political dialogue, expressive painting and writing workshops, and an inter-generational conversation. During and after these events, information will be obtained through surveys, interviews, and reflections. Through this qualitative research, an oral presentation will be developed examining the power of connection. These events will catalyze conversations that explore the impact of empathy and community. The implications of such work could prove useful in peace building and conflict transformation, with the potential to address problems confronting our country today.
