Council 1: An Introduction to the Way of Council


Fri, 02/05/2016 - 5:00pm to Sun, 02/07/2016 - 3:00pm

with Siri Gunnarson and Adam Rumack

Experience the age-old practice of Council and learn ways to use it to enrich all your relationships: couples, families, schools, businesses, communities ...

Council is a compelling communication method that cultivates empathic listening and heartfelt dialogue. Practiced around the world in communities, organizations, prisons, post-conflict zones, and educational settings (including more than 60 public and private CA schools, South Africa, Europe, Middle East and other places), Council helps to nurture the deep, authentic connections often neglected in our ever-faster, multi-tasking culture.

This weekend workshop offers an introduction to and grounding in Council practice, guided by two experienced trainers, as well as an opportunity to explore and enjoy the rustic beauty of TOF’s 44-acre retreat center.

Fee:  $625, includes a Council Manual, six vegetarian meals from Friday supper through Sunday lunch, and two nights shared accommodations.  Single accommodations may be available for an additional $80. 

Register below, or call Diana at 805-646-8343, ext. 123 to register by phone, to ask for single accommodations, or with any questions.
