"As the world balances between what we've been and what we need to be, what's on your mind, in your heart, catching your attention in life: that really matters and matters among us.

Letting the sense in our spirits and hearts surface in talking together is
how paths forward come into view."

— Michael Britton, HumanDHS Board Director

Our Collaborative Approach

HumanDHS workshops are co-created and organized to explore mutual concerns while strengthening our relationships as advocates, practitioners, and scholars. If you are new to our community, we warmly invite you to visit last year's workshop webpage to see an example of how we go about hosting this gathering.

Many Ways to Participate

This workshop is a highly participatory gathering, and there are many ways to participate, including:

  • Supporters: Everyone is warmly invited to join us as a supporter throughout the workshop by sharing your presence and active listening. This is the most important way to participate. Your presence is a present to all of us!

  • Careholders: We welcome all who would like to be part of our Careholder Team to help with logistics, including welcoming participants, overseeing our electronic connection, photography, reading chat messages, and more. We warmly welcome returning friends to help with these vital leadership roles that make this workshop possible.

  • Pre-Planned Dignilogue Contributors: Again this year, we are organizing Pre-Planned Dignilogues that will act as portals to thoughtful conversations about crucial topics of concern.

  • Connection and Reflection Groups: We welcome everyone to participate in small groups throughout the workshop to help deepen the dialogue in response to all sessions.

Important Note: We invite everyone to think of our gatherings as opportunities to engage in lifelong conversations. We encourage participants to find ways to build enduring relationships and continue collaborating long after our workshops and conferences conclude.
Moments of Music, Movement, Poetry, and Creativity

Every year we look forward to including gifts of creativity during this event.

If you would like to share your talent, we would love to hear from you. We especially encourage contributions of prerecorded music, readings, or activities (2 – 3 minutes) that we can share on Zoom as the workshop unfolds.
