How do we prepare for economic and ecological change? These times have left people isolated, vulnerable and afraid. In response, congregations and communities are forming Resilience Circles to help their members find connection, the information they need, and avenues to a new kind of security — one based on mutual aid and support. At this facilitator training, we will provide the tools and inspiration for starting your own club.

What is a Resilience Circle? It’s a new way for group leaders and trainers to help people help themselves in these troubled times.

These are challenging times for all of us.  The economic meltdown and concerns about the health of the planet have left people isolated, vulnerable and afraid. Resilience Circles are a way to find connection, information, and avenues to a new kind of security – one based on mutual aid and support.  Participants learn about the causes of economic and ecological changes, overcome isolation and strengthen community ties.

Who Should Come:  People with some experience leading groups.  No other expertise needed.

The Training:  You will learn how to lead our 6-session curriculum designed to promote learning, mutual aid, and social action.  The training is simple, participatory, and rewarding.

There is a $15 registration fee to cover materials and lunch.
