The Listening Circle: Leading a transformational practice in life and work

About this Event

The Listening Circle is a simple, adaptable, and scalable form for building trust, shifting stuck dynamics, and fostering a connection to vision and purpose.

This workshop is designed for people who seek practical tools for personal and collective empowerment, and also for those seeking new methods to implement organizational and/or community change.

During these 8 x 2 hour online sessions, you will learn you how to facilitate a listening circle practice at home, work, and within a community. A deep listening practice strengthens relationships and supports any individual or group working with transition and change. We will learn the conditions from which this space can be created and the nuances of a practice that can support it in your lives – both personally and professionally. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Deeper ability to listen for a more related and compassionate approach
  • Understanding key elements, competencies and forms of a listening circle 
  • Techniques for building resiliency in transition and transformation - both individually and in groups
  • Applying circle-based systems in different environments: school, Pr*son, community, business, government – for deeper connection, meaning and productivity

A few testimonials about our training:

“A masterful weekend of exploration. This is an excellent pioneering work…This training expanded my ability as both a leader and a facilitator to respectfully open space for people to share understanding on issues that matter and to reflect on problems in a healthy way.”

-      Brett Robin Wood, Founder, Creative Wisdom

It was a profound weekend – part retreat, part teaching, and learning, part becoming a community, part being inspired. Very important to me was the way We are Open Circle created a space of invitation and trust.  I was able to transform and change. There are very few places where I would have the courage or feel safe enough to do such a thing. I learned a great deal and I now have tools that I use regularly.” 

-Carolyn Wilkinson, Palliative Health Care Center Manager
