Event description

Description

Community Building Circles is an experiential 5 day training to introduce participants to community building circles. The dates of this training are: November 13, 20, 27, December 11 and 18 (from 10:00am to 4:00pm on each of these dates).

Light breakfast will be provided. Each day will include a 60 minute break for lunch, however lunch is NOT provided.

All participants will receive a copy of the book Circle Forward.

Circles are a traditional, cultural and spiritual practice. In this training, participants will experience the power of community building in a circle, learn about the restorative approach–its roots and underlying principles– and learn the basics of keeping a circle. We will focus on how we engage ourselves and others in the mind, heart, body and spirit. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss implementation of restorative practices in their workplace and personal life, practice keeping a circle, and gain feedback from their peers.

*If you prefer a different form of payment (check, pay at the door, etc), please contact Alexis Goffe at agoffe@mnyouth.net.
