Welcome to Talking Circles by EventWell, our peer support programme providing a safe space for you to visit for mentoring, coaching, or just simply advice or to chat about your mental health and wellbeing.
WHAT ARE TALKING CIRCLES?
Talking circles are based on the sacred tradition of sharing circles. In a Talking Circle, each one is equal and each one belongs. Participants in a Talking Circle learn to listen and respect the views of others. The intention is to open hearts to understand and connect with one another.
Here are all the details you need for our talking circle groups so you can pick the right one for you (you will need WhatsApp to join the group of your choice).
