Conversation is our most enjoyable, readily-available, and

powerful way to stimulate our minds, nurture friendships,  and continue to learn and grow.

 

Please join us to preview CONVERSATION MONTH.  We’ll share NEW ways to enrich your life by having  great conversations more often – and to share that experience with our fellow New Yorkers, as we celebrate the publication on Oct. 9th of Reclaiming Conversation by our esteemed colleague from MIT, Prof. Sherry Turkle.  

 

On the agenda:

 

Share what we’ve learned about talking together in ways that encourage fresh thinking and nurture

friendships – including the premiere of the mini-play “Conversation Par Excellence”  starring CNY thespians.

 

What’s your Conversational Style? How to recognize and avoid Conversational Narcissism.

 

Six simple, powerful ways to enhance your conversations for greater enjoyment, creativity, and gratification.

 

How you can you find great conversations in NYC – or create your own!

        

We’ll also preview CNY’s CONVERSATION MONTH (October), which will feature:

 

** a TEDx Salon with  Ron Gross on October 9th,

 

** a Seminar with Professor Turkle  on October 20th at Columbia University, to discuss her book.

** city-wide conversations throughout the month on intriguing and important topics, moderated by outstanding hosts.

 

And of course as always we will honor an outstanding contributor with our prestigious Plato Award (“…and this month’s award goes to….”)

 

75 VARICK is between Watts and Grand Streets, next to the Jackie Robinson Museum.
