Finding Our Way in Ashland

A series of conversations and workshops focused on dealing with difficult emotions, situations, and individuals.

In late April, Ashland will host Finding Our Way, a series of conversations and workshops focused on dealing with difficult emotions, situations, and individuals. Centering mindful introspection and caring conversations, speakers and workshop facilitators will brainstorm and share ways of thinking and talking about race, homelessness, and political discord.

Produced by The Hearth, the conference invites participants to engage divisive issues and bridge differences with greater honesty and grace together with neighbors in their communities. The workshops, dialogues, and retreats will be offered to participants between April 26–28 at venues around Ashland.

On Friday, April 27, Adam Davis, executive director of Oregon Humanities, will collaborate with other facilitators in two conversations about race and homelessness. Along with Ryan Stroud of CommuniTalks, Davis will lead Finding Our Way amidst the Unhoused, a community discussion on homelessness and transiency as it is experienced in Southern Oregon.

Later that day, Davis and Marjorie Trueblood-Gamble from Southern Oregon University will facilitate Finding Our Way amidst Racial Differences in Ashland, a conversation on the skills, awareness, and actions needed to improve race relations in Ashland.

Tickets for the conference are available now and are required for entry. Most events, including the two conversations described above, are free of charge. Read more.
