Deep Listening Circles
I believe there is a global movement that is gathering momentum, a movement of people who see our current mainstream social system as unsustainable. A movement of people who see the connections between the many social crises facing humans today, from war, poverty, ecological crisis, social injustice, violence in all its forms and so on. This is a movement based on a deep paradigm shift in consciousness, and profound structural and systemic change. This movement is part of what eco-philosopher Joanna Macy calls The Great Turning - a transition from a fear-based, violence-based industrial society to a life-sustaining society based on nonviolence and love.
To help power this movement, I have a vision of people coming together in circles, to hold space, to speak and listen deeply to ourselves and each other. From such deep listening we discover our truth, our meaning, our purpose, our action, and fortify our courage so we can take our next steps.
What are the Deep Listening Circles?
The Circle sessions are facilitated monthly sessions that use deep listening skills and simple activities to create a safe and supportive forum for deep sharing about our relationship with the world around us.
The Circle session provides an opportunity to meet like-minded folk and to help create a community of support for our work in the world. Participants are encouraged to share the Circle process with others, so that these circles of support ripple out into the community.
Who are the Deep Listening Circles for?
The Circle sessions are for anyone interested in exploring their connection with the world around them. All are welcome (aged 18+). Whether you are already deeply engaged in social change work, or you have strong feelings about the world around you and unsure how to act, you will be supported to align and deepen your action with your inner felt sense.
