A Resilience Circle is a small group of ten to twenty people that comes together to increase personal security during these challenging times. Circles have three purposes: learning, mutual aid, and social action.
The economy is going through a deep transition, and economic security is eroding for millions of people. We're worried about our financial security and about the future we are creating for our children. Many of us aren't part of communities where we can talk openly about these challenges and fears.
In response, people are forming small "Resilience Circles" of ten to twenty people. These groups are exploring a new kind of security based in mutual aid and community support, and helping build a new kind of economy that's fair and in harmony with the earth.
