POSTPONED: Peace Circles for Racial Healing
There is a need for Racial Healing in all aspects of American life. This is a gathering of people who are ready to experience the circle process with a focus on racial healing and who are interested in learning how to bring racial conversations to their community. Many times our approach to racial healing is in response to a crisis in the community. We are offering a different way of talking about race and racism that is safe, preemptive and proactive. We aim at building strong relationships capable of holding the important healing dialogues around race.
Peace Circles provide the space for transforming relationships. The circle process taps into both ancient practices and modern processes to create trust, intimacy, goodwill, belonging, and reciprocity. Circles intentionally create a sacred space that lifts barriers between people, opening possibilities for connection, collaboration, and mutual understanding. The process is never about changing others, but rather is an invitation to change one's relationship with oneself, to the community, and to the wider universe.
