Place Category: Council Trainers
Jodi Margaram Bell first experienced Council when her daughters were attending Open Charter, a public elementary school in Los Angeles. Jodi was moved by the the way in which Council practice enabled her to understand and appreciate both others and herself in a new way. Inspired, she began learning to facilitate Councils through workshops at The Ojai Foundation, facilitating circles with children, adults and non-profits, to become a Certified Council Trainer. Jodi’s education includes an A.B. in Political Science (magna cum laude) from Brown University and a law degree with distinction from Stanford University. In addition to being a lawyer, Council trainer and facilitator, Jodi teaches yoga and practices capoeira, a Brazilian martial art that is also a circle practice. She currently helps to open dialogue in the workplace and creates ceremonies in private settings through her personal endeavor, LA Circleworks.
