The Basic Circle Guidelines pdf condenses the art of hosting a circle into a two-page, easy-to-understand document. We offer these basic guidelines to anyone who wishes to call people into council.

These guidelines are excerpted from the books Calling the Circle, the First and Future Culture by Christina Baldwin, and The Circle Way, by Christina Baldwin and Ann Linnea. Please honour the lineage of the circle and The Circle Way methodology as you use this gift by citing the origin and authorship of this document, and including a link back to this website:

The Basic Circle Guidelines are currently available in the following languages:
