HEALING THE HEART OF DEMOCRACY® CIRCLES
“Democracy is more about being in right relationship with each other than it is about being right.”
“If We the People are to help heal our ailing democracy – and if we do not, who will? – we need to develop five crucial habits of the heart.”
– Parker J. Palmer
A series of five or six two-hour monthly circles to explore five central “habits of the heart” that foster a way forward together in our diverse society, habits presented in Parker J. Palmer’s most recent book, Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Democracy Worthy of the Human Spirit. Using the Circle of Trust approach, we will create a respectful space in which all points of view and silence are welcome, a space where we can find the ways we come together as a community and face the heart-broken, resilient citizen in each of us, hearing one another regardless of our differences.
