The first step in cultural competency is to be in tune with ourselves, or "self-sensitive." If we have internal disharmony, we will be ill equipped to respond with intention and care for others – and this will manifest in our social situations. In this workshop, we will explore how we collectively become unaware of our own needs and prejudices and in turn the needs of others and how this takes a toll in our personal lives and society at large. We will also introduce concrete tools for practicing self-sensitivity and social awareness, such as effective social communication (operative listening and talking), refraining from assumptions, cultivating tolerance, and more.
