Our hi-tech society is built around models for a one-way exchange of information. We listen to the radio, watch the television, and often our children sit silent in a classroom where a teacher delivers a lecture. It seems we've lost the art of meaningful conversation as a heartfelt exchange of understanding between individuals. It has affected our sense of well-being, our connection to our life's path, and our readiness to share our traditional stories and wisdom. Some experts even suggest that the lack of interaction may be related to the rise in learning disabilities among children. Claudia L'Amoreaux has made an extensive study of what it takes to cultivate meaningful conversation, and how that can impact our ability to learn. She believes that the way we teach our children actually puts constraints on their intelligence, and offers exciting solutions for a more dynamic education. Ms. L'Amoreaux suggests techniques what will help us enter into deep dialogue with ourselves, our families and our neighbors, noting that "in each conversation we are a uniquely different being. If we're aware of that then we can cooperate with it and collaborate with it and co-inspire." (hosted by Michael Toms)
