Healing Circles

To live in peace a heart must be willing to go through the journey of healing. The healing circles are a journey where our own communities come together in order practice healing through "listening to one another" and "reflecting back transformative truths about each other. A healing circle is a sacred time and space where life is celebrated, pain is let go, truth is sought, forgiveness happens, love is expressed, suffering is used to heal, new beginnings arise, and a place where "LOVE"  touches hearts. We have provided healing circles to juvenile detention centers, schools, non-profits, churches, universities, government agencies , community centers, and we look forward to provide you and your community with a tool to transform even the most hurt of hearts whether it be of an individual or of a whole community.
