ANNOUNCING: Free Online Wisdom (storytelling) Circles

OConnor 13.jpg

Sitting here in my self-isolated, social-distanced bedroom in Epping, Australia, I am asking myself (like a lot of people I know), "how can I be of service" during these highly challenging Coronavirus times.

One thing I can do is host a series of online Wisdom Circles -- a simple way for people to share their meaningful, memorable, life-affirming stories with each other.

For the past three years, I've been leading face-to-face Wisdom Circles in Mexico, Australia, and the United States. Response has been very positive. Now the time has come to go virtual, at least until social distancing comes to an end.

Each Wisdom Circle will be 90 minutes long, via ZOOM. And for now, they are free.

If you want to participate, send me an email ( and I will forward you the schedule and the storytelling themes for the evening.

You have wisdom to share and it is hiding in your stories
