About SFL Colloquia
How often have you watched a debate and felt, ‘both sides have some valid points if only they stopped trying to prove each other wrong and tried to listen’. The nature of a debate is competitive and oppositional with both sides trying to prove each other wrong.
An SFL Colloquium is a collaborative, cooperative dialogue in which multiple sides work toward a shared understanding.
Dialogue assumes that many people have pieces of answers and that cooperation can lead to a greater understanding. It creates an open-minded attitude; an openness to being wrong and an openness to change while respecting other participants.
