Description of Activity

The Welcome Words are meant to set the stage for the workshop and spark conversation before the workshop begins. The Welcome Words for today are a quote and a question.

The mechanics of the Mobius strip are mysterious, but its message clear: whatever is inside us continually flows outward to help form, or deform, the world - and whatever is outside us continually flows inward to help form, or deform, our lives. - Parker Palmer, Quaker educator and spiritual activist

Question: Can you remember a time when you consciously brought forth something inside you to inform outward actions?

As participants arrive invite them to review and/or add to their journal based on the Welcome Words posted, or informally discuss the Welcome Words.
