The core purpose of Chalice Circles is to provide “formative space” for individuals to grow spiritually with one another. Parker Palmer says that we need wise and dependable support if we are to take a journey where the wise part of ourselves can come into view…We need spaces where we can “find the being in human-being.” A Chalice Circle is a space of acceptance and safety in which group members can explore their deepest values and the mystery of their inner life without judgment or coercion. It is a great place for new people to get to know others.
