Best use: On meetings. To create an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect

People sit in a circle. A talking object (commonly a stick or a stone) is passed around and only the person holding the object can speak. Others will listen. People are invited to speak and listen from their hearts. After they have spoken, they pass the object on to the next person. If that person does not want to speak, she or he passes the object on to the next person. Circles continues until nobody says anything in the entire round, or until the group decides to stop.
