Marlow Hotchkiss & Leslie Roberts
Council is an ancient form and modern practice that encourages attentive listening and heart-felt, compassionate expression. Council engenders a deep sense of community and for many is held as a life practice.
This week we will trace the arc of our collective story – from our core personal expression, through dialogues with nature and connection with our lineage, to building a circle of trust, a culture that supports who we are becoming and how we know each other.
We will explore empathy, intuition and an expanded sense of relationship as paths to a more committed life. As we remember our interconnectedness, we can speak with heart and our intentions can be understood. When our dreams are known, we become truly supportable. Through council we grow the art of telling the stories that need to be told, as author Ursula K. LeGuin suggests. Thinking like a circle. Living council.
We will offer practices for aligning our hearts and minds, a variety of council forms and address the use of council in many settings, personal and professional. With vulnerability and a little grace, we hope to touch the place where serving self, serving others, and serving the divine may all be one voice.
Reading The Way of Council by Zimmerman and Coyle, and some previous council or circle experience is prerequisite.
