Sharing Circles: Creating Connection and Belonging

Imagine a world that has sharing circles in everyday life: families, schools, places of worship, organizations, associations, communities, hospitals, offices, and government.

Join us to learn how to hold sharing circles and actually start one during the course using your own contacts. At the end of these 6 interactive and fun classes, you will have what you need to integrate this group process into areas where you see opportunity for change. Be part of the world transformation where there is better connection, commitment, joy, ease, and love.

Sharing circles benefit many areas in everyday life. For example, in organizations, circle sharing results in increased productivity, higher levels of engagement along with more positive, meaningful outcomes.
