Do you know about A Small Group (ASG)? ASG is a network of citizens “committed to the creation of a restorative and reconciled community. Our work focuses on direct efforts to bring into conversation those groups of people who are not in relationship with each other.”
The ASG Technique uses six conversations that invert the usual conversational process:
- Invitation instead of mandate
- Possibility instead of problem solving
- Ownership instead of blame
- Dissent instead of lip-service
- Commitment instead of barter
- Gifts instead of deficiencies
In The Clouds with ASG
If you want a taste of A Small Group, but can’t get to the in-person monthly meetings, Elaine and Eric Hansen host “In the Clouds with ASG,” a “virtual” gathering that uses MaestroConference to break participants into small groups for one or two A Small Group conversations.
Day: The fourth Wednesday of the month
Time: 11:30am EDT (8:30am PST)
It’s our experience that the “barriers” of technology quickly disappear, thanks to the power of small groups and powerful questions.

What is the ASG Experience?
A Small Group is hard to describe – it is really an experience. This song, written by Randy Weeks, a long time A Small Group member, beautifully captures the essence of A Small Group. We hope it clarifies the experience a little for you, but if not, it is a very pretty song.
