In the twenty-first century, nonprofits are constantly challenged to effectively adapt to ever changing internal and external factors that impact their sustainability. Many organizations rely on their leadership as the catalyst force for change and adaptation in order to remain relevant, present, and valuable. The Fieldstone Leadership Network San Diego offers nonprofit leaders Crossroads and Turning Points – a program designed to offer you timely, cutting-edge research, and information tools on relevant issues facing the social sector.
COMMUNITY RESTORATIVE CIRCLE
The Gifts and Challenges of Catching Stones
January 29, 2021 – 10 am to 12 Noon on Zoom
In partnership with the National Conflict Resolution Center you are invited to join us as we gather in a virtual community circle to share
- personal perspectives, thoughts, and feelings on advancing social justice in your work/community,
- what it means to be a stone catcher, and
- how this important work is showing up in your world.
A community circle is a unique and special space that invites authenticity, courage, and human-to-human connection. Grounded in ancient practices, community circles have been used by communities to share burdens, solve problems, and celebrate together. In this space everyone is valued equally and we draw on collective wisdom for the benefit of the entire community.
In circle we not only hear one another, we hear ourselves more deeply, and strengthen our bonds as a community of people supporting one another in life-giving and life-changing work.
This is a unique opportunity to experience this reflective, restorative and community building practice, build your personal resiliency while expanding your network of like-hearted leaders and explore possibilities to bring this experience to your own organization with provided underwriting.
This program is offered as part of Project Stone Catcher and serves to introduce new experiences and leadership tools to nonprofit professionals. It is a timely opportunity to build on The Equity Journey and Fortify: The Racial Equity Series. However, participation in those programs in not required to participate in the Circle.
