Circles of Two
“The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention.”
Rachel Naomi Remen
As humans, we are happier and healthier when we have someone to talk to when we need it.
So if you’re newly diagnosed, at a turning point, or simply need to connect, ask for a Circle of Two. We’ll listen, help you in whatever way we can, or assist you in finding additional community resources.
During the pandemic, we offer Circles of Two by phone. We can offer an attentive ear to whatever your day’s concern is—whether physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org, leave your name and phone number, and a volunteer will get back to you.
Our volunteers are trained in peer-to-peer co-counseling methods such as active listening and clear reflection. Circle hosts do not offer medical or other advice or therapy.
The same circle agreements apply: confidentiality; listening with compassion and curiosity; honoring each others’ respective paths; and pausing for a moment whenever necessary to catch our breath and bearings.
