Wrap-Up Circle & Closing
What is an Acknowledgment? It is when we offer the (virtues) & say how we saw it.
Learn pro-active listening over the course through modeling & practice.
Respect & Expect: boundaries are established & evolving to protect & honour every group member.
A How Are You Really? Circle is a safe place to speak your truth, BE heard & listen to acknowledgments, the virtues seen in you. You share only what feels right & comfortable to you. This is a safe listening circle: which means there is NO Interrupting, Advising, Criticizing, Blaming or Shaming.
*A Virtues Pick:
is ONE (card)* that is randomly selected (from 100 cards) in the Virtues Reflections Deck as a focus for the circle.
