THE TEEN TALKING CIRCLE PROJECT DAUGHTERSSISTERS BROTHERSSONS
April 12, 2011

This work completely changed my life. As a teen, I participated in a teen talking circle and looking back, I can see that it was the foundation of learning to trust myself, honor my feelings, and connect to other young people in a compassionate and authentic way. As teens, my friends and I who were in circle together would often wonder aloud what we would do if we didn't have that space. It was a deep and lasting gift.

As an adult, I took the facilitator training and was again turned completely around. The training not only left me feeling more alive and inspired than I can remember feeling. It gave me the tools I needed to start both a radical sex ed class for teens at an alternative high school and a bereavement group at my alma mater. In this way, TTC is slowing reaching out across the country--I write from Massachusetts--giving us all the message we are hungry for, "It is safe, right here, to tell the truth." I've seen it work wonders, heal deeply and bring the living back to life.
