Circle Process is an invitation to engage in a dialogue that moves us beyond formal conversation and into deeper relationship with one another. The foundation of Circle is rooted in active listening. A talking piece is passed from one person to the next in a clock-wise direction. Deep listening takes place when the only person speaking is the individual with the talking piece. Circle recognizes that active engagement does not look the same for every individual. Some may choose to sit and be in community without speaking, this does not take away from experiencing and honoring the others in the Circle. This is a reflection of how each of us shows up in the world. Many of us chose to express ourselves in other ways beyond verbal communication. The invitation is to be present and open to taking away something new.
