Community Building Circles: A Proactive Restorative Practice
Tue, April 4, 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
Circle practices create space for all voices to hear and be heard. Community building circles are a foundational practice that may serve as a launchpad for other circle practices, such as Peace Circles. Through experiential means, participants learn foundational elements and protocols of circles and leave with the skills to facilitate community building circles of their own. Community building circles, focused on building and cultivating relationships, may be used in a wide variety of applications with both adults and young people--in school, youth development, and business settings. Communities that use circles to intentionally build community are more emotionally intelligent, report fewer incidents of conflict, and report higher levels of well-being. Please join us for an interactive and meaningful session with colleagues from across the city!
Please join us for coffee and networking at 8am, and then learn community building circle skills for a wide variety of applications! Registration opens on Mar 1st and will remain open until Thursday, Mar 30th. Space is limited, so please register soon! (Early bird tickets are available from Mar 1-17.)
