The circle is how we roll

February 6th, 2011

To develop Cleu community where you live, meet in circle once a week. Study the Cleu book. Read Christina Baldwin’s Calling the Circle, and download useful guides to the circle from Peer Spirit Circling. Take the time to meet face-to-face. It’s who we are.

Calling all Cleu!

January 31st, 2011

If you think about where humanity seems to be headed, you will realize that storms are coming– metaphorical, like the economic meltdown, or literal, like the intense weather due to climate change.

Seeding Cleu Circles

March 13th, 2010

The CLEU is here to help you find people with a clue, so you can support your shared values and celebrate your human rites of music, art, dance, drum, song, and story. Over the last 10 years, we’ve given out over 10,000 Cleus, so it’s ever more likely that you can find a person with a Cleu near you. As a meme, the Cleu continues to spread its message: you are the clue.

Our mission is to seed Cleu circles in every community. We’d like to help you find each other. Just click on CleuViews to sign up for our newsletter with your email and zipcode.

As cultural creatives, we support remaking our energy infrastructure, investing in education, and providing healthcare for all. We even send money to our favorite charities. However, now at this time of economic crisis, we need to do even more. As Boomers or Millennials, or somewhere in between, let’s meet each other, to talk, plan, dream, and inspire. Find people who share your values and make a circle that includes both olders and youngers, then take the time to find out what you each bring to the table.

Circle power

No matter what your spiritual tradition, take the time to sit in circle with friends, family, and others. Your intention may be to focus on a specific issue or activity, to deepen your emotional or spiritual bonds, or simply to celebrate the miracle of your shared consciousness. More »

Celebration…. a clue to creating community!

January 10th, 2008

Enjoying the human rites of music, art, dance, drum, song, and story is a sure way for your group to experience At-Onement, both individually and together. You don’t have to have any “talent” to get this feeling. Human rites exist deep within our genome– they are what makes us human. Drum and dance, music and song, story and art, have expressed our joys and sorrows since the beginnings of village life. Our spirituality takes root in these indigenous practices, unifying all people through the universal language of celebration.
