As all these participants know one another, we move away from a sharing of name and background and we start with an icebreaker. The story of how they got their first name / middle name / last name.

It’s a way to explore family, culture, and traditions. We go around in a circle.


We follow with a framing question: “Who am I at my best?” One or two words. We allow a few minutes for pause and reflection for these words to emerge. We then share. People speak up when they are ready.
