Welcome to the South Devon Mens Circle 
The Circle meets once a month on a Saturday evening from 8pm until 10pm around a fire on land near Totnes and Kingsbridge, South Devon and is open to all men throughout Devon and Cornwall. Distance is no problem. Venues are decided each time we meet and are communicated via a whatsapp group that you will be invited to join if you wish to attend on an ongoing basis.  
What Do We Do?
Circle practices include:
  • Some drumming.
  • Some stillness and contemplative sitting 
  • Some simple ritual
  • Some simple storytelling
  • Way of Council (WoC) using a talking stick                                                                                                                                                 
Explanation of WoC:
Whoever has the stick speaks and everyone else listens without interruption. This practice includes learning how to speak and listen from the heart, not attempting to fix or solve the problems of others, being lean of speech / aware of time and being bound by strict confidentiality to the Circle.
Convenor's rotate.
