    Summer Circles: Moving Toward Greater Individual & Community Well-Being

    7:00 pm

    With Leaf Seligman

    Our stories matter. They connect us, strengthening bonds of community and helping us to talk about issues that divide us politically. In this third circle in our series, participants will share, be heard, and listen attentively. Together, we will create a respectful space that fosters understanding and empathy, in line with Mariposa’s mission “to foster peace, global awareness, and understanding across cultural boundaries.”

    Why Circles?

    Peacemaking circles derive from the practices and tribal wisdom of Native Americans, where members of a community gather as equals to discuss matters of significance.
