Online Circles of Connection

WCS Online Circles of Connection
In Milwaukee, across the country and around the world, people are crying out to be heard. Community Building Milwaukee (CBM) events endeavor to create a safe environment, free of judgment, so participants can speak freely and authentically.  Our Facilitators guide using same Community Building concepts and principles that are used in our 3-Day Workshops.  

This experience provides an opportunity to connect with people who may well look different than you and even think differently than you. This is a truly unique experience of self-care.  You will leave with tools to listen with greater depth and empathy and be heard in this manner by others.
