SOF Vanguard Salon and Seminar: The Values of Civility

Join us in Aspen on the evening of Thursday, May 4 and on the morning of Friday, May 5 for an SOF Vanguard Chapter Salon and Seminar on the Values of Civility. This fascinating, text-based salon and seminar will be moderated by our own Director of Seminars, Todd Breyfogle.

Breyfogle will discuss how we can engage in conversation when opinions and emotions are divided, as well as how we begin to find common ground in ways that honor others’ perspectives while maintaining the integrity of our own. Using the Aspen Method, the group will explore classic and contemporary texts as a way of reflecting on civil discourse as a way of democratic life. This will be a unique opportunity to delve deeply and get to the core of the issues with one of our most renowned moderators. It is a Vanguard opportunity not to be missed.

The program will consist of a Thursday evening salon from 5:00-9:00 pm (dinner included) and a Friday morning seminar from 8:30-12:30 pm (breakfast included).

Space for this Vanguard Chapter-exclusive opportunity is limited. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience.

Fee: $65
