We are happy to announce another community Circling Night. Greg will be leading the night with the help of Anne, Tate and Jason. We are limiting attendance to 14 people, so if you signed up and are not able to attend please make sure to change your status for the evening, even if it's last minute. If you happen to end up on the waiting list, please check your status as things can change. Thanks!
Our Circling practice is a social meditation where a person has the opportunity to be seen, heard and understood in the moment by a group of people. It is not therapy, nor is it fixing someone but instead a celebration of who and where they are right now. Within circling we break through the assumptions and projections we have about each other and create deeper connection and understanding.
Circling is a practice that requires your full presence. We need all participants to arrive well rested and nourished with a clear and unaltered mind, this also includes having a drink beforehand.
We recommend that each person attend a few Games Nights before attending a Circling Night. If you are unable to attend any Games Nights, due to scheduling conflicts, we need to be able to contact you for a short interview to make sure this is a right fit for you.
What to bring: You are welcome to bring a snack or tea to share and a water bottle. We are asking for a suggested donation of $10 or what you feel is good to give in the moment.
Doors will open at 6:45, please do not arrive earlier than that, since this is someone's home. Circling will start at 7:00 sharp so please be prompt, once a circle has been started the doors will be closed.
Depending on attendance, we might have one large or two smaller circles. Our first Circling session will be for 40 minutes. Afterwards, we will have a discussion on how it went for the group. Then we will break for 5-10 minutes. The next Circling session will be for 40-60 minutes depending on what time allows, with a group discussion to follow. If we have two separate circles, we will also conclude as a whole in the end and speak about how it went for the groups. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks and hope to see you there!
