Every Thursday Afternoon Talking Circle From 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
The Talking Circle is a great way to unwind from lifeâ€™s challenges or to share quality time with people from the community. Talking Circle provides a safe environment where people can talk openly about what is happening in their lives. What is shared within the Sacred Circle cannot be discussed with anyone outside that circle of trust. Many people on the path to recovery find the Circle an excellent way to stay balanced and maintain their recovery. A home cooked meal follows each circle.
