Materials for Activity

  • Chalice

Description of Activity

Gather around the chalice. Ask the group to focus on the words "exploring Our Values through poetry." Invite participants to speak freely into the space a word or two that they associate with the words "exploring our values through poetry." When everyone who wishes to has had a chance to speak, close by saying,

May the space we have created within ourselves by the work done here be wide enough to hold all our collective ideas and deep enough to allow those ideas to grow, to fruit, and to provide seeds for our new beginnings.

Extinguish the chalice.
