Talking Circles & Human Connection
Talking Circle Leaders: Carol (CC) Landauer & Tyrus Watson
Join us for an opportunity to experience a talking circle, an ancient practice, which can be a tool for teachers, parents, friends, colleagues and neighbors to help forge human connections. Learn as we listen to and hear each other.
