From the website:
A Resilience Circle is a small group of 10 – 20 people that comes together to increase personal security during these challenging times. Circles have three purposes: learning, mutual aid, and social action.
The economy is going through a deep transition, and economic security is eroding for millions of people. We’re worried about our financial security and about the future we are creating for our children. Many of us aren’t part of communities where we can talk openly about these challenges and fears.
In response, people are forming small “Resilience Circles” of ten – twenty people. These groups are exploring a new kind of security based in mutual aid and community support, and helping build a new kind of economy that’s fair and in harmony with the earth.
Resilience Circles help us:
- Courageously face our economic and ecological challenges, learning together about root causes.
- Build relationships and undertake concrete steps for mutual aid and shared action.
- Rediscover the abundance of what we have and recognize the possibility of a better future.
- See ourselves as part of a larger effort to create a fair and healthy economy that works for everyone in harmony with the planet.
- Get to know our neighbors, find inspiration, and have fun!
