STUDY CIRCLES: It’s that Time of Year! Start One Today!

Fall is the time of back to school, the winding down of summer busyness, and cooler nights. It is also the beginning of GALA’s Study Circle Season!!

  • Powering a Bright Future
  • Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics and Sustainability
  • Menu for the Future
  • Just Below the Surface:  Perspectives on the Gulf Coast Oil Spill
  • Global Warming: Changing CO2urse
  • A World of Health: Connecting People, Place and Planet
  • Sustainable Systems at Work
  • Choices for Sustainable Living
  • Voluntary Simplicity
  • Healthy Children – Healthy Planet
  • Discovering a Sense of Place
  • Reconnecting with Earth
  • For more detailed information on these topics visit:

Each Study Circle is guided by a course book, a manual for a self-facilitated course experience. Study Circle’s can take place in any natural community space such as your home, your workplace, a place of education, or a center for faith. To learn more about Study Circles, check out this VIDEO.

There is no outside facilitator of these discussion-based courses. Rather, ANYONE can organize a group in their community with the role of facilitator rotating with each meeting!!
