Talking Circle: Check Your Filter

  • Pershing Court 804 Pershing Drive Silver Spring United States (map)

A wise friend once said, “You’re not talking to the person, you’re talking to their story.” Have you ever been in a situation where someone’s words, actions and/or presence left you feeling some sense of dis-ease? And when that has happened, have you ever taken the time to explore what is REALLY happening inside of you in that moment? 

During Check Your Filters, we will…

  • talk about ways to identify our emotional triggers, 

  • discuss how past experiences can act as communication-hindering filters in current situations,

  • explore ways to honor our feelings in challenging situations, and 

  • talk about how to listen to both yourself and others from a place of compassion. 

Registration Fee - $20 per person. Refreshments provided.

NOTE: Talking Circles are currently limited to a max of 6 participants.

Talking Circlesoriginally used by indigenous people of the United States, are designed to provide a space that encourages open dialogue, problem-solving, healing and growth. With those principles in mind, our Talking Circle sessions are small group conversations designed to help you explore the root of what keeps you from connecting fully to your inner voice, passions and purpose. The space and conversations are as sacred and special as you are.
