Gathering in a circle to engage in a conversation is a very ancient practice. If we trace modern day people back far enough into their individual lineages, all of us come from earth-based, tribal people that gathered around the campfire. The circle is deep in all of our bones. We intuitively know that sitting in a circle creates equality. The circle enables each person to be seen and heard. The circle gives voice to each individual. The circle creates a common place of focus and attention.
Using circle practice is ideal when a group needs to engage in conversations that matter at a high level. The circle enables many ideas, insights and stories to emerge and converge. The circle creates synergy among many minds, hearts and spirits.
There are many methods used to give intention to circle conversations. Hosting Sacred Conversations draws on a network of practitioners, traditions and styles to host circle conversations that enable faith communities to find clarity, wisdom and courage.
