What is it that guests find unique about the holistic Centres in Pelion?
I believe it’s the circles.
Small circles with a few staffers every morning, bigger circles at the Saturday morning community meeting, intimate circles where 3 or 4 people process conflicts and problems, Thursday night fireside sharing circles, and big circles with a few hundred people coming together for a common aim.
Circles have been part of humanity’s history for millenia. Circles represent equality, consensus, sharing, unity-in-diversity and when a talking stick is added, respect, listening and participation. Every indigenous culture incorporates them into its decision making, its cultural life and its history. We are only just learning how powerful they are.
