Today begins Courageous Meeting: The Circle Way. There are 28 of us. At an Episcopal Center, Transfiguration Spirituality Center near Cincinnati. There will be lots of big and small circles. To lean into detail and to soften hearts to bigger picture. To remember the feeling. To improve practice. To grow and lend courage.
We do it as individuals.
We hope for it as groups — teams, organizations, families,communities.
Being and belonging
requires courage from all of us.
Circle guides us.
In meetings and in community.
From inner to outer.
From now to the longer arc.
This workshop is about growing new culture as individuals and groups.
It’s a culture remembered, and, imagined into being.
It’s creating enough space to get to meaning and emptiness.
It’s creating enough structure to get to order and practice.
Martin Buber, 20th Century Philosopher
