Annual Gathering of Council Carriers


Sat, 07/11/2015 - 10:00am to Sun, 07/12/2015 - 1:00pm

The annual Gathering of Council Carriers is open to all who hold Council in their hearts and who desire to bring the practice to others.

Both leaders and learners are welcome to gather in community, to tell our stories, renew our passion, refine our vision and celebrate the many ways that Council is helping transform individuals, families, organizations and communities.  Whether you are a veteran Council Trainer, facilitate Council in classrooms, boardrooms, community circles or with family and friends, you will find inspiring circle work, small breakout groups, rich conversation, laughter, and connection at this unique convergence of people who carry the practice of Council in the world.

Fees for the Gathering:
$200.00 includes Saturday overnight and 4 meals (Saturday lunch and dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch).  Due to the discounted nature of these fees, and our desire to encourage community, no other fee scenarios are available for any other arrangements.  Meals will be simple, healthy, and vegetarian.  Please feel free to supplement with your own prepared foods / snacks if you wish. (Coolers appreciated,)
