Healing Circles help us step out of ordinary time into a safe and accepting environment to explore our own healing. With open hearts, we access our inner guidance to understand where the greatest healing in body, mind and spirit may occur. With open minds, we work together to remove obstacles to healing, alleviate suffering, and deepen our capacity to heal.
Help others benefit from this amazing practice by learning to host Healing Circles. We will review the format, roles, agreements, and spirit of a Healing Circle, and we will practice and reflect on our own Circle experiences. A light lunch will be provided.
