Gilly from the Netherlands tells us:
The Circle Way youth exchange at Tempo di Vivere was a wonderful experience and had a great impact on me. Together with participants from different cultures we explored the topic of living sustainable, as well as with our material surroundings as in our relationships. We self organised different activities and build a small community together in a short period of time by practicing with the Circle Way dialogue method. For me getting to know and working together with like minded people from all over Europe nourished my hopes that we can build a more sustainable future together, keep on doing what we are doing and follow our dreams and passions to share them with the world. What a blessing to meet each other in an experience like this.
Tim from Germany tells us:
I had a very special, intense and beautiful time at the youth exchange in Tempo di Vivere. Already after the first dinner together I felt really welcomed and present within the group and community. Everyone was so kind, loving and supportive to one another which made it very easy to feel connected. The circle way and its daily sharing really befitted me as it felt like a huge liberation when I shared my troubles and felt listend by and accepted.
There were also so so many other forms of knowledge that was shared throughout the days, from permaculture, over plan based cooking, to sociocracy, natural medicine and biodegradable household products we learned something new everyday. If I had to name one thing that made this time so special for me it would be definitely the participants and the team of TDV that formed such a beautiful sense of community and trust. Oh and of course the MAGNIFICENT place the community is located in, I still can’t get over the view into the valley. Love and light, Tim
