Home Groups

Everyone who attends the conference will be assigned a home group of about 8 to 10 women. You will meet together once or twice a day throughout the conference. Home groups provide an opportunity to discuss more deeply the information shared in the larger group presentation.

A basic format is followed: reading of queries (questions), having a few minutes of silence, taking turns sharing responses to the queries without being responded to. The sharing is done “towards the center” rather than to one another to allow for freedom for the one who is sharing and to limit feedback. We aren’t trying to create discussion or offer advice, merely to provide a brave space for people to open up and talk. After all who desire have shared, sometimes further discussion or open sharing will follow.
