Join us for monthly Community Wisdom Councils with parents and community members who feel a desire to connect, reflect, and collaborate for the children and the common good. Wisdom Councils are an opportunity to strengthen our shared visions, acknowledge the feelings we each carry about the state of our world, and see what we can do together to begin embodying a local culture of wellbeing, mutual support, kindness, and belonging.
Monday, July 8th – 5:45 to 8pm – Eugene – RSVP required!
Our meeting space is limited to 20 people. To RSVP send message to email@example.com. Plan to arrive a few minutes early to settle in. Please bring healthy OG snacks and love to share.
ABOUT THE EVENT:
Council is an ancient communal practice of listening and speaking authentically from the heart. We use five simple guidelines in council: one person speaks at a time, speak concisely, listen without judgement, observe spaciousness between each share, and the specifics of who shared what are held in confidence. Each council will be guided by prompts and notes will be taken to track the emerging themes and inspirations of the group.
We see the potential of our community councils to lead to practical and enriching community connection of all kinds. The possibilities are truly exciting. We are dedicated to steady growth and trust in the beauty of what is ready to emerge in good time through us.
It is our intention to help facilitate a community held space for the children that supports their evening rhythm, as much as possible, through outdoor play, group snack time, and story time. This month the participating community will share the cost of childcare, so that parents can be present for the council.
If you need childcare in order to participate, please RSVP with their name(s), age(s), and anything else that would be helpful to know about them.
