Circle Training with Jennifer Ball

April 16, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - April 19, 2015 @ 4:00 pm


April 16-19th, 2015

Inner Transition is pleased to be bringing to Guelph, Jennifer Ball PhD, RPP, MCIP. Jennifer is an international facilitator and Circle Trainer, with experience in North America, Australia and Southern Africa. An Adjunct Professor at the University of Guelph and co-author of Doing Democracy with Circles: Engaging Communities in Public Planning.

Join us in circle for a three and half days of a full immersion in the tradition of Talking Circles, which Indigenous people all over the world have used for millennia.

Circle is a powerful tool for bringing people together to understand one another, hear diverse voices, strengthen bonds, make decisions, solve problems, support and learn form one another, create spaces for healing and build community through shared stories and experiences.

Gathering in circles helps us transition from our current paradigm of centralized power to one of shared leadership in which everyone contributes to the collective wisdom.

The use of Circle can help people solve complex emotionally charged, or otherwise intractable conflicts by offering a safe and supportive space in which to encourage honest communication and for all voices to be heard.
