The Magic of the Circle

Posted on Updated on

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.
