Council or The Way of Council is a practice of deep listening and sharing from the heart which is distilled from the thousand year old practice of humans gathering around the fire and sharing their stories with one another. It is practiced as a ceremony in which we cross the threshold of the mundane to meet ourselves, each other and the Sacred in a reverent way. Council utilizes a center, a circle, and a talking piece to create an intentional and safe space in which to share our stories. Circle is an archetypal form which we recognize through our cellular memory and feel belonging and safety within.
I have been working with circle for 13 years and since 2013 I am a council carrier, having organized and co-hosted council workshops in Turkey. It is part of my calling and work to sit in circle and host sacred space through this ceremonial way of being together. I am available to community groups, organizations and even individuals & couples to facilitate council experience.
