The Way of Council

January 17, 2011

Council is the practice of speaking and listening from the heart. Through compassionate, heartfelt expression and empathic, non-judgmental listening, Council inspires a non-hierarchical form of deep communication that reveals a group’s vision and purpose.

Council offers effective means of resolving conflicts and for discovering the deeper, often unexpressed needs of individuals and organizations. Council provides a comprehensive means for co-visioning and making decisions in a group context. Council is about our personal and collaborative story.

Today the practice of Council is the core of The Ojai Foundation’s programs in schools and in our peace and reconciliation work abroad. It is the major component of our youth and adult outreach to both public and private schools and businesses and is utilized by the Foundation staff and community regularly, both personally and professionally.
