Chalice Circle participants use questions and spiritual exercises based on the monthly theme to explore the theme, their deeper selves and the world in a supportive community. Each person has the opportunity to speak uninterrupted around the circle as the rest of the group practices deep listening. “When I hear others, I see my own experience in a new way. I feel alive and less alone more connected. Because people are speaking with authenticity in a safe space.”
Open rolling enrollment, initial commitment is four months.

Group B meets 1st and 3rd Mondays, 12:30 – 2:30pm
