Neighborhood Circles For Unity and Spirit

Hello Friend, and Welcome!

We are people of all ways and faiths,
creating community and Spirit by any name you call it.

We are engaged in uplifting the goodly, Godly spirit of our hearts that can connect us all together.

Our beginnings are centered in unity and the healing of Spirit,
the oneness of all races, religions, and ways.

We are all one family.

Unity Talks-- sharing thoughts in community

UnityTalks include the following elements for Good Conversations:


  • * Diversity – Friends, neighbors, co-workers, members of community groups, strangers. The idea is to involve both people who share similar views -- and people who don't.
  • A structure –.A set beginning and ending time. usually 1- 1 1/2 hours.
  • Fair sharing: a chance – at the start and at the end - for each person in the group to speak in turn. No interruptions. No feedback. Not speaking is okay, too.
  • A Host who introduces the simple agreements and process, and keeps time.

  • A Set of Agreements includes :
  • Open-mindedness: listen to and have patience with all points of view.
  • Acceptance: suspend judgement as best you can.
  • Curiosity: seek to understand rather than persuade.
  • Discovery: question old assumptions, look for new insights.
  • Sincerity: speak for yourself about what has personal heart and meaning.
  • Brevity: go for honesty and depth but don't go on and on.



To help participants stay at ease, curious and inviting, and keep the conversation interesting,
Hosts may ask:
• (to open up interest & curiosity) Tell me more about…
• This is what I heard you say… is it what you meant?
• (if someone begins advocating for a fixed position) What led you to this point of view?
• (if someone begins campaigning for a candidate) What is most important you in a leader?
• (if there is agreement but little diversity) What if the opposite were true?
