The Resilience Circle Network (also called the Common Security Circle Network) is a pilot project of the Institute for Policy Studies Program on Inequality and the Common Good ( http://inequality.org ). On the Commons ( http://onthecommons.org ) has also provided resources to develop the curriculum.
We view our role as primarily helping organizers and facilitators who wish to start and sustain circles. We are not trying to build a new organization or sell anything.
The Resilience Circles Organizer is Sarah Byrnes. Contact Sarah at Email address removed or 617.477.8630 x307.

Author's Note: The opening paragraphs are the author's observations and are not necessarily the teachings of the Resilience Circle Network. The Resilience Network ultimately is related to the Transition Town Movement, which is primarily concerned with our ability to adapt to Peak Oil. Peak Oil for me is a representation of a cancerous mentality on the part of the "powers that be" that believes in unending growth. I use the term cancerous for this is exactly what it is.....growth gone wild. The belief system behind my thinking is holographic, which has been discussed by physicist David Bohm and neurologist Karl Pribram. In essence, the Holographic theory states that in every part is the whole. Thus, humans as cells upon the face of the Earth are indeed a cancerous growth destroying the planet. Just remember, if the body dies, so does the cancer. In our case, is it likely that cancer can become aware enough of itself to change? Deep question. Hope I get some feedback.
