WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT LAST YEAR’S COURSE

“It was exciting to learn that things that I had sought to practice intuitively could be identified as deliberate technical skills to better facilitate groups of any kind.” – Terry

“Words or phrases describing the impact on my life of this small group: connection, vulnerability, deep sharing, acceptance, valuing of my individuality.” — George

FACILITATOR Rev. Karen Hilfman Millson has spent 25 years developing and supporting Circles within Small Group Ministry.  Experience has taught her 1) that the Circle model needs to be experienced and reflected on rather than taught, and 2) that the model of Circle Culture has many applications beyond Small Groups as a methodology that is critically helpful in these times of transition and potential transformation toward wholeness and wellbeing on earth.

Circle Culture derives from an intentional process where we: listen deeply; speak from our heart, mind and experience; create space to connect to Wisdom within us and amongst us; honour our own and each other’s gifts; commit to action to move toward change; encourage, support and be accountable to one another as we seek to live a vision of wholeness; discover clarity and creativity emerging in our midst; align with the intuitive flow of life. the process begins with circle participants connecting to their inner core of creativity and wisdom that is accessed when we create a safe place for us to show up as our authentic self.   ~ Karen Hilfman Millson
