Study Circles resemble communal problem solving gatherings around a fire called dare or idale in pre-historic ensembles or communities. The principle is premised by dialoguing among circle members to tap on the wisdoms and knowledge of individuals in a democratic way so as to find lasting solutions to the problem they will have identified. In essence it is a group of 6 to 12 people who share common interests because they are affected by the same problems.
