Jan 24, 2019-- John Malloy tends fires. He is a guardian of safe spaces where people gather. John began tending fires in this spirit as a county probation senior group counselor. He then co-founded The Foundry, a school for kids who had been in jail. John currently works as an Intervention Specialist in schools and leads an Intergenerational Support Group for people challenged by grief and trauma. For over fifty years, he has anchored circles that tap into the power of silence, compassion, deep listening and a full presence. In this interview, he shares his experience of what it takes to bring "medicine" to the circle. In leading circles, John says that, "people care how much you care...It doesn't matter (who is in the circle); you just have to present yourself with authenticity." (6973 reads)
