Talking Circle

Friday, October 12th, 7:00pm – 8:00pm with Mike Currier

Join us the second Friday of each month for a new event!!  Talking Circle, hosted by Mike Currier.  What is a Talking Circle you may ask? In indigenous cultures all over the world communities gather together and have discussions.  At these gatherings a question is asked and each person in the circle is given an opportunity to share their thoughts on the subject.  This is accomplished through the use of a “Talking Stick”.  The stick is passed from person to person.  Whoever has the stick is the only one allowed to speak and all in attendance give them their full attention and hear their perspective. This practice helps us to see things from other points of view as well as learn a great deal about our world, our community, and ourselves.  It was once said by Aristotle, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”   Talking circle gives us this opportunity. So if you are looking to grow, learn, and have some fun along the way, join us the Second Friday of each month from October through December from 7-8pm.  Cost: $Donation Based
