As we work to be our best selves, we share our progress, challenges, and growth in Circle.
Circle is a weekly opportunity to come together and support each other in our individual development. Circle lets us mediate problems, heal when we are hurting, and celebrate when friends display good habits. Circle is how we hold ourselves accountable to growing into our best selves.
Circles are powerful because they create natural equity, inviting everyone to be seen and to be heard. They also lend themselves to shared leadership and to a sense of equality as all places in a Circle are equidistant from the center. Circles also create strong communal focus as everyone in the Circle has their attention directed to the same place: the center. Bringing communal issues into a Circle has helped garner communal wisdom for generations. Finally, Circles are powerful because they invite us to be transparent and in relationship with each other. As opposed to the modern "board room" where imposing tables, agendas, projectors, conference call speakers, and computers can all be viewed as barriers to connection, Circles invite us to simply be together, without mediation. We believe this is more important than ever in our exponentially fast-paced, digital, and me-first world. Circles are an ancient practice that have much to offer today.
