There are some very easy steps to getting started:

 

  • If you’re not participating in a Seeker’s Harbor gathering yet, give us a call at 406.661.1584 to get connected!

  • Attend a sample gathering, so you can “get a feel” for our Seeker’s Harbor style of community.

  • Attend a Team Retreat and Facilitator Training to learn some skills and get comfortable holding safe space.


We’ll provide a model format, resources, relevant, progressive study materials and ideas… everything you need to begin enjoying genuine community with your small group!  And ongoing support through retreats, coaching, peer support and training opportunities.  

Listed below are our "Circle Principles," which we read together as we begin our gatherings. These guidelines help us maintain our focus and spirit of communion.

Our intention is to provide safe space for deep spiritual conversations.
It’s important to define what safe space is and talk about parameters….
Each Seeker’s Harbor group has Circle Principles that guide our time together –

 

Listen with compassion; without an agenda.

~

Listen for wisdom as it comes through each person.
No one has all the answers; we’re on this journey together.


~

Speak from your heart & experience; saying what is true for you.
Speak one at a time so everyone can be heard.

~

Invite silence & reflection when needed.
Listen to inner guidance before speaking.

~

Practice self-respect & self-restraint. This way, our
contribution adds to the positive experience of all in the Circle.

~

Be sensitive to the groups’ needs.
Sharing is encouraged – one voice should not dominate.


~

Keep the confidence of the Circle. What is shared in the Circle, stays
in the Circle to make this safe space for everyone.
