    After last year's successful summer seminar in New York City, the IGS will be holding a 3-Day In-Person General Semantics Seminar in London, UK, on July 25-27.

    Navigating the Now: A Guide to Recognizing What Is Going On will be taught by IGS Trustees Nora Bateson, Dom Heffer, Mary P. Lahman, and Lance Strate.

    During the seminar, we will explore how unexamined language behaviors perpetuate misperceptions of past and present controversies in professional and personal spaces. And we will determine which language and listening behaviors respect the infinite worth of each person in the interaction.

    The seminar will be held over 3 full days (9 AM to 5 PM) on July 25th to 27th in London, UK, at the October Gallery.
