Reflect on and discuss with your co-leader(s):
- How did the timing go today? What might we do to make it work better?
- How long did it take for the participants to discover a solution to turning the circle inside out? Did it seem too easy or too challenging? How might it be made more challenging, or easier, next time?
- Were the participants able to reflect on the issues raised in the story? How do they perceive this heritage of love which has been passed on to them?
- How did the creation of the friendship bracelets go? Were participants able to move on to the next bracelet, or did they cling to their previous bracelet? If so, was it because they had too strong a sense of ownership? What other reason(s)? How might this activity be conducted more smoothly? How might it be improved to, for example, take into consideration the needs of some participants to find ownership in their project?
