Teen Talking Circles
In 1993, Linda Wolf and K. Wind Hughes came together to write a book to help their daughters and other girls navigate their teen years.To collect data, they formed the first Girl's Talking Circle with teens from Bainbridge Island and Suquamish, WA. This became The Daughters Sisters Project. The 21 girls in the original circle insisted that they continue beyond the initial 10-weeks and circled for 2 more years. Also, a series of GenderTalks Circles took place, out of which a weekly Boys Talking Circle was created. After the release of Daughters of the Moon, Sisters of the Sun: Young Women and Mentors on the Transition to Womanhood, hundreds of people wanted to know how to start a circle in their community. To meet this demand, we held our first Teen Talking Circle Facilitator's Training in 1998 and officially became Teen Talking Circles in 2001. Since then, we have trained more than 500 adults, bringing effective circling to communities across the country and internationally, and specifically to give teens a safe space to tell the truth.
