What is the practice of council? The Way of Council, by Jack Zimmerman and Gigi Coyle, was published in 1996 and has been instrumental in helping to take Council into the world.Council practice, in its modern form, is a circle form of communication and wisdom sharing practiced by virtually all indigenous peoples around the world. (From text describing Council at the Ojai Foundation.)

Council Training is effective in bringing together people who are experiencing conflict of ideas– for example, couples, partners, and members of corporations or government organizations. Listening to the other viewpoint without judgment–really listening–can open the heart to deeper communication and understanding in the world we live in today.
