This workshop applied the wisdom circle format, based on the discursive rituals and spiritual practices of Native American tribal councils, to encourage IABSmembers to share personal stories that reveal something of their inner self, as they address the challenges and frustrations of their public lives. By speaking with an “authentic voice” and listening respectfully to others in the circle, a remarkable bond of trust and empathetic understanding emerged in a relatively short period. This innovative learning process encourages both personal reflection and the collective search for “common ground” needed to enable joint problem solving
