How Are you Really?

When was the last time you felt really heard?
 without  Interrupting, Advising, Criticizing, Blaming or Shaming.

Based on a bi-weekly Circle that began more than 12 years ago

How Are You Really? (HAYR?) Circles are

Compassionate & Caring Small Groups of 6

Each member has 8 - 12 mins to speak what's on their heart & mind.

  • Learn more about the virtues present in the stories & choices shared.
  • Discover the quality of Caring that comes with Compassionate presence.
  • Experience what BEING HEARD can do for you.

The HAYR? circle is: 2 hours PER week / Online on Zoom

  1. Welcome Circle & Virtues Pick*

  2. Storying (each person has 8-12 minutes to answer the question)

  3. 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.
