Join folks from all over the US, and other countries, on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month, at 9:00am PT/ 12:00pm ET and all times in between, for Hope Story Circles. The idea for this gathering came from a discussion between two Peace Alliance board members and our Teaching Peace in School Leadership Council lead just as the world was going into lockdown as the pandemic was spreading in early 2020. The question on everyone’s mind was how can we stay connected when the scientists were telling us to separate for the good of our health?
This is a twice monthly online community peacebuilding hour in which we offer a supportive environment for active listening, authentic expression, and the uplifting of others through the power of storytelling. Attendees find connection in networking, support, and resources within the international peacebuilding community.
The power of storytelling to enhance connection is as old as humanity. Stories like Stone Soup and the Allegory of the Long Spoons remind us that we cannot survive without each other- a challenge we all find ourselves identifying with as we navigate a global pandemic and the devastating loss of so many loved ones.
Get all the information you need to join us through the Calendar on our website. We are limited to 100 people in the “zoom room” so be sure to join right at the start time to ensure your place. If you happen to miss a day, no worries! You can listen to an audio recording of each Hope Story Circles by going to our Peace On Podcast page.
Please invite your friends and family to join you as we feed each other with our stories to co-create a hopeful story of an emergent community in this moment.
