Join us November 12-18, 2022 for a variety of events across languages and time zones, hosted on the new Taos Institute Online Community platform.

Dialogue with the Authors

Each month, we offer an opportunity for you to join authors of new and significant books for a brief presentation followed by rich dialogue. Visit our Dialogue with the Author page to view upcoming events and check our YouTube channel for past recordings.

Education as Relating Dialogues

Building on the enthusiasm generated at the Fall 2021 virtual Education as Relating conference, we invite you to continue the dialogue. Each month, watch conference session recordings and join our Education as Relating – Ongoing Dialogue free gatherings for generative conversations.

New Book

In his latest book, Ken Gergen, Ph.D. proposes that our future depends on our ability to shift from viewing the world in separate entities, to caring for the process of relating. This short book not only asks “how are we to go on?” but offers innovative relational practices to enhance well-being. Read more.
