Awakening Community Circles & FREE "Open Mic" Events

Exploring ways to share the Three Principles' transformative impacts... in the community where YOU live.

Do you want to create "inside-out" community change?  You can lean on our experience.

CSC is recognized throughout the Three Principles world for our work in communities.  And from the beginning, we've built on the broad body of work and remarkable results our founder Roger Mills helped to create in distressed communities and schools across the United States.

With our strong foundation of work in creating and engaging common understanding within communities around the country, we have created an online videoconferencing series to help you take the next step in starting a Three Principles-based community project.

Awakening Community Circles:

Virtual gatherings to inspire, encourage, and support individuals to bring an understanding of the Three Principles into their local communities.

Hosted by Judith Sedgeman, EdD, virtual Awakening Community Circles are designed to network people with similar community interests for sharing and mutual support. The objective is to inspire, encourage and support individuals to take action to bring an understanding of the Three Principles into specific programmatic settings in their local communities.

This online videoconferencing series (via the ZOOM platform) will be offered once a week during (usually) the second, third, and fourth weeks of each month; each session will feature one or two presenters who are introducing the Principles in similar community settings. Different community settings will be presented each week.

FREE Monthly Awakening Community "Open Mic" Events

Online "Open Mic" discussions are held on (usually) the first Tuesday of each month at a set time and are open to the public to participate for FREE.  Each online video conferencing "Open Mic" discussion sets the topic for that month's three subsequent Awakening Community Circle sessions.

Monthly Focus Areas for 2018

We will cover a new focus area each month via a FREE "Open Mic" videoconference on (usually) the first Tuesday of the month, followed by three paid, separate, weekly videoconference conversations on the remaining Thursdays.  Our monthly focus areas for this year are:

    Awakening Community Circles: "Good and Evil Seen Through the 3Ps" - December 2017

    Note: due to the holiday season, we're holding TWO sessions this month:

    December 7 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    How do the 3 Principles explain "evil" people, and if we are all the same, why aren’t we all "good" people?

    December 14 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    If all people CAN change, and peace is our natural default setting, why doesn't everyone find peace?

    Recordings are made available after each session. We generally try to get them posted by the following Monday.
