You’re invited to join Freedom Project’s Community Circle which will meet 6-8 pm on the first and third Tuesdays of February 2014. We decided to switch to Tuesday evenings, so other Freedom Project volunteers (who often facilitate mindfulness classes inside prison on Monday evenings) can also join us.
WHEN: The program will begin at 6 pm with mindfulness meditation, followed by personal check-in according to the format of Nonviolent Communication and any announcements. After requests, appreciation and announcements, the program will conclude promptly at 8 pm, so individuals in transitional housing can return prior to their 9 pm curfew. Thank you for respecting this time constraint.
WHERE: Community Circle will be held again this month at the Compass Housing Alliance, Nyer Urness Home, 1753 NW 56th St, which is 1 block north of Market Street in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. To gain entrance to the building, inform the receptionist at the outside speaker post that you are attending the Freedom Project Community Circle program. For further information, call the Freedom Project Office 206-325-5678
TRANSPORTATION: If you would like to find out about carpooling with other people who also want to attend, please let us know your address. Then we will try to put you in touch with others in your neighborhood. Bus routes #44 and Rapid Ride “D” line are good public transportation options
RSVP: Please let us know if you plan to attend or if you are interested, but not able to attend this Tuesday. We would appreciate hearing your feedback about Community Circles itself, as well as the location and timing of the meeting. This program is contingent on receiving affirmative RSVPs from at least 6 individuals.
NOTE: Community Circle is a networking gathering of returnees who have been released from prison and other community members who meet to support each other in practicing Nonviolent Communication and mindfulness.
