Taylor Barratt from Authentic Relating Toronto visits The Stoa to discuss the intersubjective practice of Circling. A generally accepted history of the scene, how the scene and practice have evolved, and its potential role in the meta-crisis, meaning crisis, and culture wars.

Please note: This is not an ART event, 'talks' are usually not our thing, however this is a great opportunity to hear me (Taylor) talk about Circling in a way we rarely do at ART, as well as introduce ART members to a bit of what's going on at The Stoa, as I continue to work to transcend and include both Circling and Sense-Making into something tangible and accessible and greater than the sum of it's parts.
You shared, we listened. You liked the theme. You liked the games. You wished some gamed had more space, and were longer. I want to oblige so we will be doing the same theme we did last week, with some of the games you liked the most but we'll leave more time for them.
If you weren't there last week, join us and see what all the fuss was about!
We will be playing games that allow us to connect with ourselves and each other around the theme of "Friendship".
#1 Agreement while we explore these games and themes: Honour yourself. Only doing and sharing what you want to do and share.
Lead by me (Kasia) with facilitator Julie as well.

You might notice the pricing for some events has been adjusted from what we typically charge for this event type, in-person. The event’s prices represent the value we see the session offering participants, while acknowledging the reduced operating costs of not having to rent and/or travel to a venue, along with the structural modifications (ie. shorter event times) required to create a valuable online experience.
COVID-19 Fee Policy for Community Track Events
We don't want anyone 'left behind', meaning it's important to acknowledge how many of our lives may already be financially impacted by the mandated (and socially responsible) restrictions put in place. We feel it’s also important to acknowledge that this situation extends to many of our facilitators. Therefore, participants who can’t pay the fee due to a loss of income due to COVID-19 related restrictions may ask to attend events for free if they reach out to the event host to arrange this.
New Refund Policy
If we cancel an event you will get a full refund. We also allow refunds 48-hours in advance of event start time. However, due to recent changes with our payment processor, any participant-initiated refunds will now have a $1 service charge deducted. For example, a $10 event will result in a $9 refund.
