I would like to read posts from people who attended the conference regarding the "high points" -- information or moments at the conference that were most meaningful or helpful to them.

Thank you for your good suggestion. We'll see what we can do.

I would like to learn about Wisdom Circles.

Thank you Carl - yes, more to come on Wisdom Circles from Pittsburgh.

The Circles, on different topics, will take place on Thursday of the conference (e.g., on consensus, technology). For those new to Wisdom Circles their purposes can be multiple but at core they provide all within the Circle (the group) an opportunity to learn from the "collective mind" and inherent wisdom of the group.

So glad that we can "participate" in the conference all the way from the Philippines, thru this venue. What a wonderful idea! Blessings and prayers for a successful meeting/spiritual experience.

Methods to deepen the sharing in Local Groups, and to advance on our individual journeys in these groups are topics I'd be intersted in. Oxford Group, Faith-at-Work, or 12 Step programs are the methods we are using locally now.

Phil - there's a wisdom circle on Centering Prayer Groups/Facilitators this Thursday so maybe some of it will spill-over to here.
