Aberdeen Median Group

    Evening Median Group - A Space to think

    The Median Group is a space where people from different spheres of life meet to explore their relationships with their colleagues, organisations and the wider society and find support and understanding through open dialogue. The median group provides an opportunity to reclaim our sense of identity and connectedness in order to find fulfilment as individuals and as members of our community. It is a creative space providing opportunity to ‘sit with' oneself and with others, and to think actively and collectively in a safe and confidential setting. It holds at its heart that developing the art of dialogue with others is crucial for the individual to remain thinking and creative in the context of uncertainty and chaos.

    Time: 6.00 - 7.30pm
