SHIFT CIRCLES

We are all Learners, We are all Teachers.

SHIFT Circles are a three-session series of small-group life/work discussion and planning. In a Circle, knowledge from actual lived experience is valid knowledge and each 2-hour session is led by one or two experienced facilitators. In a setting of acceptance and support, you’ll explore your strengths and challenges, connect with others, and create a future vision that includes initial action steps.

Whom does this apply to?
What is the first thing Circle participants have in common? Most are in some sort of life transition—changing jobs,
losing a loved one, downsizing a living situation, searching for activities that bring new meaning to life. The
transition at midlife can be especially crucial.

SHIFT-IN Network Groups

Got questions about your next steps? Deciding what ideas to turn in to action? Want to explore those ideas with others on a similar life journey?

SHIFT-IN Network Groups are a small group meet-up for people in work or life transition and are here to assist with courage / curiosity / resolve. Come and enjoy a ‘cuppa’ and good conversation designed to create a sense of direction, encouragement and support. No reservations required, you can just drop in as your schedule permits!

Cost: $5 per session due at time of your visit,  plus we ask that you plan to support our host facilities with a purchase of a beverage or treat (when applicable).


SHIFT Workshops

When you just want to dive a bit deeper.

SHIFT workshops can be stand alone sessions that address a specific topic or concern in a smaller group format.  Other workshops may be designed as follow-up sessions to expand upon a topic addressed at one of our monthly forum gatherings.
