Preparation for Activity

Description of Activity

Use this time to help participants find a space that feels reflective and begin to identify internal reflection.

Welcome participants quietly as they arrive. Encourage them to find a comfortable place to sit in the Council Circle space. Invite participants to draw on the foil or paper, and/or use the foil as an art medium. Call their attention to the glimmers from the foil as it reflects the candlelight.
