Circle Training

Circle 101 Training

Our Circle 101 Training is usually offered at least twice a year.  It is a transformative experience and spans one and a half days (Friday evening and Saturday).

  •  Origins of the Circle process—ritual, tradition, values, balance
  • Values, principles, and components of the Circle process
  • Types of Circles in Washington County Community Circles

See our upcoming trainings on our events page.
