While you will find a full range of options for Closings in each session's Council Circle activity, it is recommended that you decide on a standard opening and closing ritual to use in each session, in collaboration with your co-leaders at the start of the program.
Keep Openings and Closings simple so participants can remember them, from session to session. It can be as simple as a chant or brief words. Use the ritual to provide continuity for participants with discontinuous attendance. Another way to provide continuity is to display the Toolbox of Our Faith poster, adding a picture of the new tool each session. Find instructions for making the poster in Session 1: Faith, both in the Welcoming and Entering section and in Activity 4: Toolbox of Our Faith poster and Group Covenant. Over the course of the program, the poster provides a visual reminder of the session themes and tools.
