This class will involve drinking hot beverages and discussing pressing social/cultural/political topics. Some topics discussed in this class are related to mental health, relationships, climate change, racial/cultural issues, queerness, gender, identity, plant life, earth health and sexual health.

We will listen to each other, listen to ourselves and hopefully gain some more clarity and insight into tricky or confusing subjects.

The format of this class will be fishbowl discussion and structured debates.

In a Fishbowl discussion, students seated inside the “fishbowl” actively participate in a discussion by asking questions and sharing their opinions, debating, while students standing outside listen carefully to the ideas presented. Students take turns in these roles, so that they practice being both contributors and listeners in a group discussion.
