Civil Discourse Series, 9 October | Online Event | Civil Discourse Series
A large group event to bring people together for genuine dialogue, who hold opposing points of view. Can we talk?

About this Event

The Issue

This moment in human history seems to us to be mired in fierce divisions and violent ideological warfare that threaten our basic values and ability to move in the direction of creative, culture-saving changes. “Can we talk respectfully to restore a climate of joined forces, empathy, mutual acceptance and caring?”

The project

We intend to bring people together to air differences with a hope of being heard and understood, despite prevailing political and social divides. Our effort will be to create a space of genuine openness, congruence, and acceptance without setting a particular outcome or even a set of rules. The conversation will be open to any issues that participants wish to raise or discuss. The more controversial, the better. Together we hope to learn more about civil discourse and the possibilities for change inherent in hearing one another despite deep disagreements. We hope you will join us with your unique ideas and presence.

Where and When

The group will be hosted on Zoom and convened by Peggy Natiello, Carol Wolter-Gustafson, and John Wilson who will also participate in the group process. Administrative tasks for the event, including opening a zoom room and managing technical support, will be provided by Online Events.

Payment for this event:

We are offering access to this event for a self-select fee. The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to facilitate inclusive learning.

In order to afford convening this meeting, we need to average 60 pounds per person. We understand that everybody’s financial situation is different, and trust that each registrant will choose a fee that fits their needs. In our experience some will give more than the average and others less in accordance with their financial situation, hopefully providing enough to meet the average.

Peggy Natiello

Peggy Natiello’s professional life has focused on Client-centred therapy and the Person-centred approach. Her book, The Person- centred Approach: A Passionate Presence, was written to clarify the importance of Dr. Carl Rogers’s radical beliefs about psychotherapy, education, group work, organizational development, and life. Currently she is reflecting on the perfect fit between those beliefs and the dizzying changes confronting our global culture.


Carol Wolter-Gustafson

As a facilitator, therapist, and university adjunct, the person-centered approach has been her theoretical and experiential home-base since her first group encounter group with Carl Rogers.

Carol has explored human wholeness, brokenness, and our power in our personal and social relationships. Her work is cultivating alternatives to the destructive, “us vs them” zeitgeist in her writing and Going Global Workshops.


John Wilson

I have been facilitating in Counselling & Psychotherapy programmes in the UK for more than 10 years.

I am currently the director at Temenos Education and have a private practice where I offer online Psychotherapy and Supervision using video and chat communication platforms along with virtual environments. I am also the co-founder of onlinevents which has grown to be the world’s largest library of online video and audio content with instant certification and a learning log.

I am also a past chair of the Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO) and have served for 6 years on the board of the World Association for Person Centered & Experiential Psychotherapy & Counselling. My passion to bring online learning into the field of Counselling & Psychotherapy has also led to the development of online experiential learning within the Temenos programme, facilitating the exposure of Temenos students to external tutors who are located in different parts of the world. Along with the inclusion of experiential learning of online Counselling & Psychotherapy for Temenos students so that they qualify with knowledge and practice in online communication and relationship.
