Colloquy Training for BSEC Members
Dec 3 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Colloquy Training for BSEC Members @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

ATTENTION: BSEC  MEMBERS INTERESTED IN TRAINING TO BE COLLOGUY LEADERS!

We are having a training from 10AM-Noon on Saturday, Dec 3, 2017 This is an invitation for you to join us in the training.

What is a colloquy?

Colloquy is an opportunity to engage in deep listening and to develop compassion and understanding. We hope to get to know ourselves and each other more and to create a safe space for us to share our life experiences. A colloquy usually  incorporates music, meditation, and quotes within the format of a sharing circle and around a particular theme.. Some examples of themes have been: Ethical Legacy;  Earth Day Art Workshop in Honor of Mother Earth; Forgiveness; Gratitude; Personal Transformation; Occupy 2012; Meditation Techniques.

We hope that experienced colloquy facilitators  will  attend this training and take this opportunity to share with those newer to this form.

If possible, please attend the colloquy led by Jone Jonson Lewis on Nov 27, 2016 on the topic of “Story” to familiarize yourself with the colloquy form.

If  you have any questions or wish to attend, please contact Tasha Paley at tashapal@gmail.com. Or phone her at 917 200 8451.

Thanks! We hope to see you there!

Home is a big word. We can think of it in both rational and imaginative ways. In this colloquy we’ll explore both. (Colloquy provides opportunities for each of us to reflect on our own lives in relationship to the topic and listen and learn from one another, within the format of a sharing circle.)
