The Sedona's Living Room Conversations (SLRC) was a 2014 project to provide a positive, community-building alternative to the highly partisan, polarized way many people approach community issues.

The goal was to create in Sedona, during the week of October 16 - 23, 2014 an enjoyable, warm, thought-provoking "dialogue" experience for residents interested in: a) getting to know their neighbors and b) talking with them respectfully about issues of common concern.

Small groups, each composed of about six Sedona residents, met for a two-hour conversation in homes or community centers. Each group followed dialogue guidelines and an agenda suggested at Besides getting to know each other, the participants exchanged thoughts on a multi-faceted substantive issue: "Quality of Life in Sedona."

Thank you to Paul Friedman for leading the Sedona Living Room Conversations project. He shared all the materials he developed so others could use them.
