For 16 years, Elder Circles have provided Tucsonans with opportunities for structured conversations that explore and affirm engaged and conscious living in the “third act” of life. Started in 2004 by Tucson activist Del Jones and others, the Elder Circles program became part of the Center for Community Dialogue & Training and Our Family Services in 2012. Throughout this time, the Circles provided a safe, respectful place to reflect and hear from others on the Elder Wisdom Journey, at no charge, assisted by the gentle facilitation of trained community volunteers.
Beginning in July 2020, the Elder Circles program again will operate independently, under the name Wisdom Circles. The Center will work with the Wisdom Circles Council throughout the summer and fall to ensure a smooth transition and is grateful for the committed volunteers who will ensure Circles continue to be available in Tucson.
