She will use the model the Native American People’s used called ‘Talking Stick’ which in contemporary holistic therapeutic circles has been renamed as ‘Active Listening’ and draws on the Quakers model. Where we listen with open minds and open hearts.
Zahara Steven and Julie will start the Circle Share and then open the space up for the whole circle. With the intention to witness experience explore and celebrate the diversity which is needed to create a sustainable future for all life on Mother Earth.
