The gathering begins with light mingling, then an introduction from the organizer, then a series of activities designed to give everyone an opportunity to see and be seen. Breakout sessions between pairs of people will lead back to a full group discussion.
Where does it take place?
A Wonder Circle can happen anywhere that a sense of privacy and comfort can be established. This can be in a living room in someone’s home, a yoga studio, a camp site, or a conference room. What’s important is that the venue be conducive to people opening up and getting real about where they’re at and where they’re going.
