“If I had to name the most transforming discovery of my life, it would be talking circles; those gatherings where everyone may talk, everyone must listen, and a balance between the two creates a community.”  Gloria Steinem 


Talking Circles originated with Native American tribes and were created as vehicle for communication, the sharing of one’s personal experiences and the opportunity to learn from others experiences and perspectives; which develops an enhanced sense of community.

Our Talking Circle is not a therapy group; instead it is a place for adoptees, birth parents and adoptive parents to speak freely, share ideas and learn from one another. We believe the IAC Talking Circle will be a wonderful source of information, interaction and interconnectedness. This group is for any adult member of the adoption constellation.

Please join us for the IAC Center Adoption Talking Circle on Friday, March 24th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at our Pennington office. To ensure adequate space and seating, please RSVP to:
