About Listening Circles
A listening circle is a facilitated process that allows participants to speak bravely about their experiences of violence and to be present to witness each other's story with care, compassion, and a sense of community. Safety, remaining connected and being compassionate to self and others are crucial elements of a listening circle for supporting someone who needs a non-threatening environment to work through one's experience.*
