how to dialogue

  • Recognising that all of us at times fall short of the ideals of our own traditions and never comparing our own ideals with other people's practices
  • Respecting another person's expressed wish to be left alone
  • Avoiding imposing ourselves and our views on individuals or communities who are in vulnerable situations in ways which exploit these
  • Being sensitive and courteous
  • Avoiding violent action or language, threats, manipulation, improper inducements, or the misuse of any kind of power
  • Respecting the right of others to disagree with us
