Getting Started

Conversations take place in public settings, like schools, clubs, churches, libraries, or residential homes. You and your group decide where to host your event. When there is a large group of attendees, break into groups of ten people with one facilitator for each group. To have meaningful conversations, arrange seating in a circle where everyone can see each other. This helps build a feeling of friendship and trust among the people in the group.
