To facilitate participants getting to know each other personally within a Workshop on Mitigating our Own Alienative-Conflicts, at the very beginning of the workshop the facilitator may ask participants to sit in a big circle facing the center of the circle; and therein have a sheet of paper on which to make personal notes to facilitate these procedures. 1. Make and wear a NAME TAG so all participants can associate names with whole persons. 2. Spend a few minutes listing on their paper one, two or three word long-descriptions of admirable/honorable: ideals, values, principles, virtues, grounds-for-hope, etc. to be shared. 3. Pick three of those descriptions to be shared in an initial sharing time, taking turns going around the circle, and reading out-loud just those three brief descriptions - - - even if previously offered. 4. Each participant jot down in a separate place on paper, the descriptions with-which-they agree-strongly; as being truly admirable/honorable with rare exceptions. 5. When all participants have made their contributions, they can take a few minutes to mark written descriptions with a 3, 2, 1 to indicate there-own High, Medium, and Lower trust in them in isolation. 6. Going around a second time participants contribute three of their most highly trusted descriptions in hand, whether or not they have been previously offered during this go-around. 7. Participants make check-marks to record the numbers of times when others in this round have affirmed a description which is already in their list in any way. Brief-Discussions of perspectives can be helpful. 8. After the above procedures, those involved should cooperate in making an comprehensive listing of already-honored descriptions; with room on the list for further affirmations to be made by the participants placing-their-initials beside entries to indicate that they view the chosen descriptions - - - as pertaining to a truly admirable/honorable personal "trait".>/i> Variations in the above procedures can always be generated by cooperative people - - - to get to know each other better, and to better generate gracious consensuses regarding what ideals, values, principles, virtues, grounds-for-hope, etc. - - - are truly honorable with rare exceptions. In similar ways it can be helpful to generate gracious consensuses regarding: vices, character-flaws, and troubling and/or Alienative behavioral patterns that present threats to personal and communal integrations and integrities as regards: health, civility, civilization and our abilities to sustain-them in-the-long-term. In similar ways it can be helpful to generate gracious consensuses regarding small-clusters of ideals, values, principles, virtues, grounds-for-hope, etc. which in-combination are truly admirable/honorable - - - when some of the constituent members-of-a-cluster are not individually admirable/honorable in some particular circumstances. The above can be enduring processes - - - that will contribute significantly to sustaining long-term-healthy communities and individual lives. Be Graciously Together in Shalom!
