Community Building Circle
November 17 or 18, 2020
9:00am – 12:00noon
For Executive Directors only, in partnership with the Wenatchee Valley Dispute Resolution Center
What is a Community Building Circle?
We are living in a time that is so fast paced, goal driven and competitive that the time to devote to our own wellbeing seems like a thing of the past. The idea of slowing down enough to listen to others without needing to fix or respond, or defend seems like a luxury.
A Community Building Circle is a process that allows for this luxury, this “gift to yourself” while building trust with others in the Circle. You may have heard the saying “Being heard is so close to feeling loved that most of us cannot tell the difference.” It’s true, and when we create that feeling of trust we change our ability to face difficult tasks and conversations.
From a platform of trust and understanding we can have those difficult conversations, we can heal the harm experienced within a community. The first step is that gift to yourself, the gift of listening and being heard, acknowledging our similarities and our shared values, the gift of sitting in a Community Building Circle.
Each day is limited to 12 participants – when you sign up, we’ll ask which date is best for you, or if you’re flexible! These events will be held over Zoom.
These events are full. Thank you for your interest.
