Step into our circle and find our innovative model that works, to build and sustain your own community.

CirclesWork! offers proven innovation for creating and sustaining effective group interactions. If you are an educator, coach, organizational facilitator, community developer or peace worker, you will find useful tools throughout our website for building and enriching your own groups.

You can join our monthly Beloved Community Teleconference Series, co-sponsored by the Jean Houston Foundation and Be The Change, to engage in meaningful conversations with Beloved Community builders like Jean Shinoda Bolen and Joanna Macy. (Hear their talks in our 2013 Peacemaker teleconference archive, too.)

Sit in circle in the Circle Forum meetings twice monthly with Lauren Oliver and expert facilitators. Sign up here.

The CirclesWork! circle technology, developed by Lauren Oliver, PhD and Bonnie Burstein PhD, enables groups to co-create enduring, healthy, life-affirming change maker circles, engaged in action that makes a difference in our world.

Enjoy your time exploring our site, and if you’d like to stay in touch, please sign up for our monthly newsletter, and participate in our blog.

Circle leadership opportunities: Look for intensives in 2014 to build skills as practitioners/coaches who launch and mentor circles.
