The Way of Council is a storytelling practice that fosters attentive listening, authentic expression and creative spontaneity. When we feel “seen” and “listened to”, we are much more inclined to use our authentic voices and to express our true feelings. The intention of this Council Circle for teens is to provide a safe and galvanizing space for the girls to understand the ways their personal stories weave into the collective story so they can learn from each other, support each others’ authenticity and co-create a vision of what it means to be a teen at this moment in time.
The practice of Council is based on the exploration of the following five intentions:
~ Speaking from the Heart ~ Listening from the Heart ~ Spontaneity ~ Confidentiality and Leanness
As a framework to our Council gatherings, we will follow the wisdom of Mother Nature by way of exploring the meaning of the Four Seasons and the Four Directions in our body, mind and Spirit. We will invite themes such as:
Who am I in the world?
What’s my calling?
Relationship to and with my body
Friendship and longing for intimacy
Developing the skill of articulating “I feel” authentically
Media pressures around definitions of womanhood
And, as we say in Council, anything and everything else that serves the girls, the Circle, the community and the greater good.
Circle will meet every second Tuesday of the month from 6 to 7.30pm starting on Tuesday September 18th.
