Study/Action Support Circles
A program for supporting the formation and continuation of Study/Action Groups
*Formats for 12 study/action group meetings
*Invitation to 1 hr large group sessions every 6-8 weeks (optional but encouraged)
Open ONLY to past participants of the 3-month group. Either you participated in an S/A group, OR you are very familiar with the WTR and are comfortable in a facilitation role.
You can either join as:
A) An individual who wants to get a local group together, or
B) As a current/previous S/A group that wishes to continue working together.
INDIVIDUALS WHO WANT TO GET A LOCAL GROUP TOGETHER:
If you are a past participant in the 3-month group and would like to put together a Study/Action group with people you know locally, we want to encourage and support you. As an individual starting a group in your area, we ask that you be relatively comfortable in the facilitation role, as you will be the one who is familiar with the work and will be guiding your group through the group formats/agendas. We will provide you with all of the group formats, to last you 3-12 months depending on how often you meet. We also invite you to join a large group session every 6-8 weeks to receive support, encouragement, and guidance, to hear how others are using the work, and to do a practice together.
EXISTING S/A GROUPS WHO WISH TO JOIN TOGETHER:
If the members of your S/A group wish to continue supporting each other in your work in the world, we want to support you! As a group, you are welcome to continue alternating the role of the facilitator. We will provide you with agendas/formats which will last you 3-12 months, depending on how frequently you meet. You will all also be invited to join in a large group session every 6-8 weeks to receive support, encouragement, and guidance, to hear how others are using the work, and to do a practice together.
DETAILS & LOGISTICS
There is no requirement for how long you and your group continue meeting, or how frequently; you are welcome to use the formats at your own pace, for as long as you like. (We recommend meeting at least once a month.) Each meeting format is one hour long. When you sign up for this, you will receive all the materials up front, and will receive invitations to large group sessions when they are happening.
Formats will be similar to the ones used previously. You will receive 12 meeting formats that support your group in moving through the spiral, as it pertains to your community intentions and projects.
Materials will be provided via the GoogleDrive platform. If this doesn’t work for you, we can also send you materials via email.
Registration is on a rolling basis, so you are welcome to sign up whenever you like.
All of these resources are offered to you on a sliding scale: €80-€250. This is what we ask from EACH GROUP; so if you are a group of four, please consider what you are able to give together. If you are an individual starting a group, you can either collect funds from people before registering, or give what you are able up front and allow your fellow members to pay you back (or contribute more later.)
