May the Circle of Courage roll your way

My very best wishes and thanks to all the bloggers I’ve interacted with this year (and those who kindly gave me an award) . It’s been a great experience to connect with generous, clever, caring people from all over the world.

I hope you all have a wonderful, safe holiday season and New Year. May 2014 bring you closer to The Circle of Courage, to true emotional happiness.

The Circle of Courage

The Circle of Courage portrays the universal human needs for belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. All four parts of an individual’s “circle” must be strong and intact in order to have a self-secure, pro-social approach to life.  I discovered it at a training course on helping teachers better serve children and youth who are in emotional pain from conflict in the family, school, community, or with themselves. The Circle of Courage is a Native American philosophical tool which helps me better understand people of any age. (I’m not implying that bloggers are emotionally unhappy, I’m just wishing everyone balance in these things for 2014) 🙂

And now for something festive. Mr Buble and the Puppini Sisters do this SO well…..

See you next year! 🙂

  1. My first experience with a circle of courage was around the supper table when Mom made eggplant casserole for the first and only time.

    Already have a couple of Puppini Sister CDs. Love their music. I don’t think they wear enough makeup, though.

    Neat post. Wasn’t aware of such an approach to youths.

    • You still got it. 🙂

      I must investigate their CDs. Makeup? Will have a look at how much/little war paint they use.

      The 4 areas in the Circle of Courage are an interesting fit for people to be happy.

      Merry Christmas, hope Santa comes.

    I love the concept of the Circle of Courage. Isn’t it interesting the way these ancient indigenous cultures can teach the modern world a few things? Merry Christmas! 🙂

  3. Never heard of Circle of Courage either…but, being that I have chosen Courage as my word for the year…has brought some interesting insight as to maybe “Why” I chose it!
