Circle of Trust

Circle of Trust
Date/Time: 4th thursday of the month (18:30 – 21:00) – Start 28th Sept
Accessibility: the event will take place in the Library or Art Room (Which are fully accessible)

We welcome you to a circle in which to slow down and hear the wisdom of your quiet voice within.
Here we work ‘alone together’, following a practice offered by author and Quaker Parker Palmer, to “support the inner journey of each person, to let each soul feel safe enough to show up and speak its truth, and help each person listen to their inner teacher”*. The circle is facilitated so that we hold each other with care while we do our individual work.

Palmer writes that “circles of trust … are a rare form of community – one that supports rather than supplants the individual quest for integrity – that is rooted in two basic beliefs: First, we all have an inner teacher whose guidance is more reliable than anything we can get from an ideology, collective belief system, institution or leader. Second, we all need other people to invite, amplify and help us discern the inner teacher’s voice.”

About the facilitators:
Sibongile and Stephen have been holding these circles monthly for the past 3 years. We are inspired by how coming together in this way supports us to know ourselves more deeply and how this impacts the ways we interact with others on a daily basis.

Suggested Donations
Participation in our community-led events is on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Yet if you can afford to and find value in the Salisbury Centre’s offerings , please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, whatever their circumstances.

If you sign up for a course that carries on over several weeks or months, whatever you’re contribution, please show your commitment by attending or letting the facilitator know when you’re not able to attend. Facilitators may decide to cancel a meeting if in their view there’s insufficient participation to make it worthwhile. Participants will be notified.
