Description of Healing Circles

  •  "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 God touches hearts."
  •  "The healing circle is an environment, a place and time where poisonous hurt, guilt, shame, pain, sorrow, hate and all other forms of self-pollution can be safely neutralized.
  •  "The healing circles are our own communities coming together in order practice healing through "listening to one another" and "reflecting back transformative truths about each other"
  •  "It is a moment where we can celebrate that we are all "survivors and thrivers"".
