Circle Way Agreements

The Cercle Way is an alternative infrastructure for collaborative conversations, which builds on the circle`s long-term principles and practices. Author Margaret Wheatley writes: “In today`s world, dozens, if not hundreds, of group processes are available. In the midst of so many choices, it is important to remember the long line of the circle and its role in the human community. the circular process is not a technique; It is a legacy.┬áCircle is a basic practice integrated into other methods of group dialogue.

Many of these circles can take place virtually rather than face-to-face, and this guide offers some preparatory questions, invitations, ideas for creating a center, the use of rituals and other practices, tips for hosts and caretakers, and an example of how to conduct a virtual funeral circle meeting.
