    “A small circle of limited duration that is intentional about its process will have a deeper, more life-giving impact than a large, ongoing community that is shaped by the norms of conventional culture.” — Parker J. Palmer, A Hidden Wholeness

    This event is open to community members of all ages!

    Join us for an evening of conversational practice. After a short period of meditation, we will gather in a circle to explore our personal experience of the world through contemplation.

    The following guidelines will be used to create a safe container:

    - Confidentiality. What others share should not be repeated without their permission. You
      can speak about your own experience of the circle, but please not others.
    - You are not required to speak
    - If you do speak, speak using “I” statements. I feel. I think. 
    - Speak your own truth in a way that respects others truth.
    - Avoid fixing, saving, advising, or correcting what is shared with the group.
    - Silence is okay. Leave space for others to speak if they so desire.
