Nurturing Reflection and Connection through the Kiva
Middlebrooks, Anthony
Journal of Leadership Education, v7 n1 p131-139 Sum 2008
The Kiva, originating from Southwestern Native American governance processes, provides a structured group experience that encourages critical reflection and self-analysis through multiple, sequenced consideration of an issue by juxtaposing public and private self, and eliciting affective and reflective responses. As a sacred space and place of connection, the Kiva process accommodates personal and often emotional topics in leadership education.
