The Elephant in the Room
with Sara Jeckovich
It's not always easy to have those difficult conversations about taboo topics such as race, identity, and yes, politics. There aren't many safe spaces where these topics are welcomed. Join us in an indigenous-inspired practice of the Way of Council, or Circle Process, where we will cultivate a space where everyone can speak and listen from the heart with the intention of engaging in meaningful dialogue. This space will not be about convincing, arguing, debating or seeking resolution; but a space of sharing, identifying and releasing the "elephant in the room". Join a trained Facilitator in a Circle Process to explore the elephants in the room and see what kind of dialogue is sparked.
