Wisdom Circles

Wisdom Circles offer local opportunities for creating a sense of community for persons in the second half of life. They sometimes go by different names, such as Elder Circles or Salons.

Wisdom Circles are gatherings of persons who explore topics and themes of interest in the second half of life.

Columbus, IN ASW and WC

New Wisdom Circle formed after an Awakening the Sage Workshop in Columbus, Indiana

These gatherings are also a way to create and maintain social connections with other like-minded persons.  The Wisdom Circles may be formed based on common interests or on prior participation in Sage-ing classes or workshops. They are often shared leadership groups, although there is commonly one person or persons who handle the administrative tasks, e.g., maintaining a contact list of participants.

An extensive Wisdom Circle Guide describing the creation and operation of a Wisdom Circle is available for your use.   Additionally, Sage-ing International supports the formation of new Wisdom Circles, and would like to help you in this effort.  Just contact us for more information.  We also have a Wisdom Circle Forum set up on this web site to give Wisdom Circle leaders a way to easily communicate with each other on topics of mutual interest.
