How to Create a Love and Justice Circle

Find three or more friends who, like you, seek a more loving and just world, and invite them to your home, apartment, a coffee shop, or wherever for a Love and Justice Circle.

First, go around the circle and have everyone introduce themselves, share a personal story, whether they are involved with or have heard of Tikkun or the Network of Spiritual Progressives, other organizations they are involved with, and why they are interested in joining a Love and Justice Circle (or what drew them to show up!).

Second, begin reading Rabbi Michael Lerner’s new book, Revolutionary Love: A Political Manifesto to Heal and Transform the World. Start at the introduction and share reflections. Each week take on a new chapter or perhaps stay with a chapter for two weeks! You can order the book here.

Third, go to our Path to a World of Love and Justice and choose one issue, read it as a group. Go around the circle and let each person share their feelings and reactions.

Fourth, have each person take out their cell phone or computer and email 3-5 people and invite them to join you at your next gathering (make sure you have the time, date, and location set beforehand!). Invite them to check out Tikkun, the Network of Spiritual Progressives, and the book Revolutionary
