Connection Circles

Connection Circles are small groups of about six to ten people who meet for an hour and a half, twice a month for four months. These small groups provide an opportunity for individuals to make deep and meaningful connections which sustain them and our community as a whole. Using monthly themes and session plans, group members are engaged in reflecting on their life experiences and perspectives. Sessions are guided by a facilitator and organized around sharing and deep listening.

Currently because of the pandemic, group meetings are taking place via video conferencing.

Signups take place in September, January, and May of each year and sessions run from October through January, February through May, and June through September. To accommodate a variety of schedules, circles are offered at a variety of times throughout the week. For more information, contact co-coordinators Carol Schwyzer,, or Becky Blake,

For many of us, this shared practice at being together on a deeper level, knowing and being known, and developing trust, has been a true joy and a source of strength. In Connection Circles we enter a space apart from business as usual, learn a new way to be together, and find out who we are.
