The Way of Council for Parents

Listening Circle for Parents of Teenagers

A Council Circle to share our experience of parenting young people in these uncertain and unsteady times. Weaving our stories of the joy, grief, wonders and struggles into a blanket of support and connection to resource us all. Held in the healing and natural environment of the woods and around a warming and nurturing fireside.

Council circle practice is an age old tradition that is a sharing method of lived experiences, focused on empathy and active listening. It enables individuals to give voice to their stories, develop mutual respect, cultivate a compassionate response to anger, defensiveness, and inequalities, as well as strengthen emotional health and resilience.

Please bring plenty of warmth as although we will be under cover around a fire, we will be outside.

For any questions please contact Heidi Rose at / 07891062769

Bookings Essential. Limited spaces, donations welcome.
