Come gather in communityship, share your voice, and listen with your ears and heart. Talking Circles are an effective way to build community, grow empathy, and promote healing. Facilitated by Maria Girouard, Health and Wellness Coordinator for Maine-Wabanaki REACH. Maria has training and experience in mediation, conflict resolution, and Circle facilitation including peace & healing Circles with Native prisoners in Maine correctional facilities. We will meet outdoors, weather permitting. If the weather is poor, we will meet downstairs in the old convent/ domestic violence advocacy office. If you have a folding chair or two, you may want to bring them.
“We all deeply yearn for connection. That’s how human beings are wired. And we can make that happen for ourselves and for those around us by simply reaching out a hand.” - unknown.
