Event description

Description

"Today I witnessed the beauty of people bringing peace."

“The power in this is that it speaks to individuals and their personal experiences, not just generalized, broad issues that are 'out there'.” – Former Circle Participants

The Way of the Circle is a practice that fosters a contemplative way of listening and speaking to others. The practice opens a deeper and more meaningful way of communicating and fosters compassion and empathy for others, and creates sacred space where reconciliation can take place. We will use this practice as a way to allow participants to process knowledge, experiences, feelings and emotions in a safe and non-threatening manner.

The Hampton Roads Christian Community Development (CCD) Local Network is excited to help pioneer this powerful tool. The goal of this event is to give participants a basic introduction to Circle processes and facilitation of community conversations.

NOTE: We've chosen to set an age requirement of 21 years old for this event. Please note no childcare is provided. Also, it is important for participants to understand this session is not adequate to prepare participants to facilitate Circles upon completion. This is simply an exposure and overview to help participants decide if further training is desired to become a Circle Keeper/Facilitator. Future training opportunities will be created.
