Free workshop on Sunday, April 7, 10 am to 1 pm at the Salt Spring Island Public Library in the Community Room.

Circles bring people together to foster deep listening and speaking from the heart to gain mutual understanding. 

They are used for decision making, problem solving and conflict resolution in schools, workplaces and families.  

Join us to learn and share this practice.
