Rim, Marcus and Floriane
My name is Rim and I am a member of the Paris Cercle d'Ecoute Mutuelle. In coordination with the German CCI, we would like to invite you to a meeting beyond the borders of language.
We are sending you this email because you are one of the 44 people present at the CCI who speak several languages. In total, 18 languages were represented at the CCI this year. This is a precious thing for an international collective, and we want to emphasise it even more.
We also believe it is necessary to create a more inclusive IAB for people whose first language is not English. Let's experience linguistic diversity together, as part of our commitment to listening to each other! To this end, we invite you to a CCI egalitarian practice meeting (co-counselling) per zoom. Egalolingualism means that no speaker is sidelined because of their lack of command of the language.
This is our goal, and we want to work with you to achieve it. If you have any ideas or suggestions, we'd love to hear from you.
The meeting will consist of an opening circle, reflections, mini-sessions and a closing circle.
We will work in multilingual groups, focusing on emotions rather than content, working non-verbally and using the signs of the invitations that you will find in the attached document. No need to revise, but take a look at it if you wish.
It will be facilitated by Markus and Floriane.
European CCI in Germany
From saturday 13 july to Friday 19 july 2024
Hi lovely co-counsellers,
All CCI co-counsellors are warmly invited to the 2024 European summer event in Germany.
About the event
Further information can be found here or
Registration for this CCI will be opened on Friday, 29 September 2023 at 14.00 German time. Be quick if you need a single room.
The link will be: https://buytickets.at/cci2024germany/937340 (You can't see the website before that date.)
Mike Root, from the USA, informed us about the following upcomming international event:
CCI USA Annual Workshop, Tuesday, May 9 - Sunday, May 14, 2023
You are invited to join us for
- CCI-USA's Annual International Workshop
- Date: Tues., May 9 to Sun., May 14 2023
- Location: Wisdom House Retreat Center in Litchfield, Connecticut (www.wisdomhouse.org)
- Theme: Lights, Camera, Life Action!
Please consider joining us! Bursary help is available if money is a concern -- we can also help with local housing and transportation needs before and after the workshop. Two important updates about the workshop:
- We will NO longer require a PCR lab test prior to attendance at the workshop. We still plan to do daily antigen testing (self-administered nasal swabs) prior to and at the workshop. We did that last year, and it went very smoothly -- organizers supplied the tests, and participants simply added that to their morning wake-up routine. For many of us, doing what we can to reduce the risk of transmitting or catching Covid makes deciding to attend CCI much easier -- especially because many of us are looking forward to real hugs, and have no interest in social distancing!
- We'll also be offering Fundamentals Part 1 at the workshop for newcomers to co-counseling! Fundamentals participants will share circles, meals, and some other activities with workshop participants, while learning and practicing Fundamentals in morning and afternoon sessions. Fundamentals spaces are limited -- anyone interested should contact Judy Hartling (firstname.lastname@example.org or 413-454-1585) as soon as possible.
More information about the workshop and Fundamentals class can be downloaded from below. If you have any questions about the workshop, please let Mike Root or Kathryn Bass know.
- Mike Root - CCI-USA Communication Coordinator, email@example.com
- Kathryn Bass - CCI-USA Communication Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you're ready to register, you can use this Google form to register online, or you can mail in the paper form attached.
(Anyone interested in Fundamentals should contact Judy Hartling before registering -- email@example.com.)
We hope to see you there!

What is a CCI Workshop?
A CCI Workshop is a multi-day space where the CCI Co-Counseling community comes to connect, celebrate each other, and grow. There will be circles with the entire community from around the world. There will be opportunities to do paired sessions.
There will be 5 to 6 person support groups that meet daily to support each other through Co-Counseling.
There will also be offerings throughout each day called topic groups, which are 90ish minute sessions that may or may not involve Co-Counseling but generally involve personal growth, mind, body, spirit, or community. Some topic groups will be planned in, and others can be offered as the workshop goes along. This is a peer community, and everyone is encouraged to contribute. This results in a co-created organic workshop that evolves as the days go by.

To Our International Friends
As you may know, Bob Sawyer died unexpectedly of a heart attack on December 16, 2020. Bob was a long-time co-counselor, an active volunteer and leader in CCI-USA,and an enthusiastic attendee at co-counseling workshops around the world. Many of you knew Bob, and know his wife, Dency Sargent (one of the founders of CCI), and his stepdaughter Cat (Cathy) Sargent.
On behalf of Dency and Cathy, we invite you to join members of the worldwide CCI community (and some of Bob's friends and family) as we celebrate Bob's life and mark his passing in an on-line gathering. It will be held via Zoom on Saturday, January 30, 2021 at:
2:00 p.m East Coast U.S. time (EST)
7:00 p.m. UK time
8:00 p.m. European time
9:00 p.m. Israeli time
and 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 31 New Zealand time
We expect the gathering to run 90-120 minutes. Please log on a few minutes early if you can, although you are welcome to join late or leave early if needed. Part of the gathering will be in small groups, so everyone will have a chance to hear and share remembrances of Bob. There will also be an opportunity for a few people to share brief remembrances of Bob in the large group -- if you would like to be one of those people, please let Judy Hartling know as soon as possible, as space for this will be limited. (Email Judy at email@example.com.)
Here is the link to join the gathering:
We hope you can join us on the 30th (31st if you're in New Zealand) to remember and celebrate Bob. If you are not familiar with Zoom, please contact Judy BEFORE the 30th -- she'll be happy to guide you through how to download and get started on Zoom. If you have any other questions, please email Michael or Judy.
With warm wishes and a full heart --
Michael Chell & Judy Hartling
