What should I be paying attention to?

[friends, at juanita's suggestion, i'm cross-posting this thread here.] Hi all! Thus far, I haven't ever really run a WC on my own, but have co-facilitated 1-2 and participated in 1-2. But from time to time people ask me how to run one. Today, I got an email from a dear friend who is looking to use TWC in Ukraine on healing old society/familial pain. She asked, "I don't have a lot of time to prepare, what should I be paying attention to in running a WC? My answer-- read the mini-guide and…See More

Dear Raffi, it's great seeing you here :-)
Yesterday I was thinking, maybe we should Skype out personally before our goddesses can hold the circle?

Looking forward to sharing stories ...

Раффи, привет, мне было чрезвычайно интересно быть участницей вчерашне-сегодняшнего действа, люди очень сенситивные, цмеющие слушать и дающие спейс для других, нам в ИТ тоже надо больше разговаривать, чувствовать других, их взгляды, варить общую кашу, пока мы разделены, я так чувствую, думаю, что скайп надо использовать для болле близкого и частого профессионального общения!
