The circle is an ancient dialogue practice

that can assist us today to engage in

high quality conversations

 

This Circle Way Practicum is a residential retreat based on the book The Circle Way, A Leader in Every Chair by Christina Baldwin and Ann Linnea. The twenty-plus year tradition of teaching and learning The Circle Way on Whidbey Island, Washington has entered its next generation.

Together we will:

  • Explore what is The Circle Way and how it works – the agreements, principles and practices that give it strength.

  • Practice circle participation and hosting.

  • Apply circle infrastructure to real and challenging situations in work or personal life.

  • Learn how circle can be used as a primary organizational operating system.

  • Discover how understanding The Circle Way can take your hosting of other participatory processes such as World Cafe and Open Space Technology to a much deeper place. 

 

 

 

THE CIRCLE WAY IS A MODERN METHODOLOGY THAT CALLS ON THIS ANCIENT TRADITION AND HELPS PEOPLE GATHER IN CONVERSATIONS THAT FULFIL THEIR POTENTIAL FOR DIALOGUE, REPLENISHMENT, AND WISDOM-BASED CHANGE.

We cannot change the world by a new plan, project, or idea. We cannot even change other people by our convictions, stories, advice and proposals, but we can offer a space where people are encouraged to disarm themselves, lay aside their occupations and preoccupations and listen with attention and care to the voices speaking in their own center. ~ Henri Nouwen
