Circles are facilitated face-to-face meetings in a circle format. This format is adopted from Native American tradition and proven to build relationships and trust between diverse groups.  As a result of these processes, challenges, conflicts or potential biases are uncovered and replaced with greater understanding and connection among participants.

We provide programming in-person and online via Zoom.  All of our presentations and classes are interactive and can be adapted to the various logistical needs of participating organizations.

what we offer


Dialogues are an immersive, facilitated process designed to build relationships and trust between diverse groups of people, such as students and their teachers or at-risk youth and law enforcement officers.  The purpose is to provide a venue for participants to share stories and experiences that allow for enhanced understanding, greater trust and stronger connections.  Dialogues often serve as an entry point to address challenges and/or conflicts, among groups that may have negative views of one another due to societal conflict and/or imbalances of power.  During this half-day experience participants will have conversations that encourage the “humanization” of those they may see as “others.”
