After 10 years of facilitating circles, I continue to be humbled by their transformative power. What happens inside a circle or intentional 1:1 can impact how we show up in the world.
“To build the world we want, and tear down the old one, we can and must start small.” Andrea Ritchie
Facilitation is an art form - but I believe that anyone can do it, with a little encouragement and a roadmap to inspire them to get started. I'm using digital design tools to create replicable, adaptable conversation guides to inspire people to self-organize; foster equitable communication so every voice is heard; and invite people in to make critical connections.
My current project: Soul Circles.
Join a pilot circle to experience the process for yourself! This offering is free - but I will ask you to make a donation and/or take action to support mutual aid and movement building.
1:1 circles last from 75 to 90 minutes, and group circles last from 90 minutes to 2 hours.
“Any time you listen devoutly to another, you have created a sacred space.” Stephan Beyer
Are you interested in using transformative conversations to boost your fundraising, community organizing, or activism? Design a circle to support your cause!
If you're involved in organizing led by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disabled, or young people, I can donate my time to help you design or adapt a circle for your community or target audience. You can keep the name Soul Circles or leave it - whatever works for you.
