About

Come join us for a chance to connect with nature, community and yourself during a calm and restorative evening round the fire in our beautiful community garden. Circle practice is a method of authentic, compassionate communication that has been practised throughout history. It involves sitting in a circle and sharing our personal stories in a non judgemental way, building understanding and empathy. When we sit in a circle, we’re implicitly suggesting that we are all equal and that we are connected. A talking stick is held by the person who speaks and moves around the circle until everyone has been heard. The invitation is to speak and listen from the heart. As a technology, a circle is deceptively simple. There are some basic ground rules: don’t interrupt, don’t analyse or judge anyone else’s contribution, keep it confidential, speak from the heart, set a time limit. Within that container, the way it works is simply to go around the circle and hear from everyone. One person speaking at a time. Everyone listening. It will be run by Jo Cotter, one of the founder members of organicARTS, and trained in the Way of the Circle, and Bekah Phillips a keen practitioner. The practice is guided by The Ways of the Council: https://waysofcouncil.net/ you can read more about Council practise here: https://waysofcouncil.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Introduction-to-Council.pdf This is the third in a series of circles on Tuesday evenings to celebrate the wheel of the year and the cycle of the seasons. The last two have been beautifully gentle and restorative. This is an adult only event, it will based around the fire outside so come dressed warmly. Hot drinks will be provided!
