„The Circle Way“ is a short book by Manitonquat (Medicine Story), published by Story Stone Publishing. It is a manual of how to start and enhance circles of any kind.

The Circle WayEdit

"The Circle Way is based on several principles, each having much real-world experience and often deeply rooted in ancestral tribal ways:

Spiritual rootedness (including reconnecting to Nature-as-Divinity, and mutually acknowledging and respecting the various religions that various inhabitants follow)

Social cohesion (including each inhabitant being part of an egalitarian clan, plus regularly held all-village gatherings)

Economic sustainability (including land trusts and being as self-sufficient as possible)

Political sustainability (including authentic consensus decision-making process—leading to high quality self-government—and continual self-education)

Simply taking joy and having fun in life!“


From „The Circle-Way Society - Powerful Medicine for Dark Times - A Social Prescription from Manitonquat (“Medicine Story”) „ by William Hofford.
