Everyone stands or sits in a circle, with the facilitator holding a ball of yarn. Hanging on tightly to the tail of the yarn, s/he tosses the ball to someone else while completing the sentence, “I appreciate you for….” Everyone who receives the ball states the same sentence and passes it to the person of whom they are speaking.  After the ball of yarn has been passed to everyone in the circle, the group slowly raises and lowers their part of the yarn to reveal the intricate web of relationships in the group.
