1. Welcome, to our tenth annual ISSS Morning Reflection RoundTable. My name is ___, and I am today’s facilitator. We propose to suspend judgment and experience this together without stopping for 60 minutes today, then every day this week. Outside of the session, we will talk with each other to determine its value for us, and to consider possible revisions and applications. For our reflection today, I’ll suggest the topic __  (see bottom of page).

2.   While we each silently consider the topic for a few minutes, I’ll ask for volunteers to read the RoundTable Guidelines on the right.  May I have a volunteer read…

3. Again, today’s suggested topic is: ___.  I would like to hear everyone’s thoughts about this topic, or anything else that is on your mind.  With today’s attendance, let’s each take about ( ) minutes.   (We may use a timer to help us.)  Please speak so that everyone can hear.  What you say is important to us.  Who is ready to speak?… Three in a row are ready here.  So let’s start with ___ and continue around the circle. …Thank you…..Thank you….. etc.

4. (If there is time, cue a 2nd full round, then 3rd, etc.) Is there anyone who hasn’t spoken who is ready to speak now?..Thank you, __. Anyone else?…. Thank you, __.
