Our experience as individuals in relation to the collective is a fluid one, as we move through our days toggling between the micro and the macro. This course allows learners to enter into a dialogue with each other about that particular experience, through the lens of forgiveness, our purpose, our external persona, the power of language, and the question of responsibility.
