Invitation to Play--An Inquiry Circle in the Sangha

Hello friends,

I thought for the New Year, we might try a bit of an experiment. I wondered if we could try to host an inquiry circle (a la Lisa Heft) here at the Sangha. It was very powerful in person in Halifax, and i hoped we might be able to capture some of that here--or at least see what happens.

The basic guidelines are as follows: The first person poses a question. The next person in the circle answers it and then asks the next question. This continues until it reaches round the circle to the person who posed the original question.

Here in the Sangha, it will look like this: If you want to answer the question and ask the next question (taking your place in the circle) you write a response and post it (you have to be quick here or someone may beat you to it--that's part of the fun). If you missed out on being the first to tackle the question, post your response as a comment and keep a look out for your next turn. I'd like to request that each of us leave space for others to take their seats in the circle after we have responded once.

If you are not already registered as a member of the Sangha and you want to answer a question and pose the next one, you have two choices: You can email me at the link on the right and ask to join, or you can email me your contribution and I will post it on your behalf.

So, let's get the ball rolling with a wicked one...
