Eighty diverse youth and adults become more human and grow closer in the central valley of California, U.S.A.
In pairs, they learn to tell their personal stories, uninterrupted and heard with a new quality of deep listening for the sake of learning.
In the beginning, a Palestinian and a Jew from an experienced 13-year-old Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue serve as exemplars, pre-recorded on DVD telling their own stirring personal narratives, and reflecting back to each other.
The Fresno citizens reveal their hopeful amazement at having experienced a new way of communication for life.
The 29-minute film is a perfect tool to help dissimilar citizens in any city begin to dispel incorrect stereotypes and assumptions about the “other,” freeing their energy for better learning and building healthy relationships together.
Although the exemplars focus on the Palestinian-Jewish relationship, the principles demonstrated in this film are universal and for all ages and places.
This Fresno, California public evening can be replicated anywhere on Earth, as a first step to building true community.
