    This is similar to a great debriefing activity that I have done. I provide each participant with a candle and a sheet with a number of statements. I read the statements out one by one, and the participants light their candle as I read the statement that most resonates with them. I usually have a big candle in the middle of the circle where they can stand up and light their candle from.

    A variation if you can’t use candles is to have the statements placed around the room. Give each participant a small item (e.g. rock or leaf). They must walk around and choose one statement to leave their item in front of.

      This sounds like a powerful exercise Felicity, thanks so much for sharing 🙂
