Embrace the art and learn the science of a circle-based practice of deep listening and heartfelt expression. Acknowledging and paying respect to the roots of council in indigenous cultures worldwide, we’ll learn of its current applications in families, social profit organizations, schools, prisons and businesses, its varied forms and settings, the importance of a strong “container”, the purpose of a centerpiece, the potent nature of the talking/listening piece, and how to sit in an intentional circle online. There’s opportunity for break-outs so you can practice with your colleagues, and time well-spent learning how to form a prompt open enough to welcome responses from the most diverse circle. You’ll gain an understanding of the basic tenets of council and finish with the skills to begin bravely practicing what you’ve learned with family, friends, work colleagues and your chosen community, in-person and virtually.
