Community Healing Circle  - To Be Heard, Healed and Find  Hope Community healing is so important if we are to thrive as individuals and as a community. All our work must  have a trauma healing component consisting of  redemptive, restorative and reparation process integrated  otherwise we will carry the trauma of our pain from our past into the world, into the next generation and  into the future. This is necessary  to reduce violence and promote healing .

  • Violence often leads to trauma and in turn , unhealed trauma can lead to further division, violence and loss of security in personal lives and the community.

  • Unaddressed trauma is always finding an opportunity to rise in us inflicting more harm.

  • Unaddressed trauma causes more hurt and harm and prevent healing.

When we go a step beyond awareness and learn to address current, transgenerational, and historical trauma, we tap into the potential to heal wounds and transforms individuals, communities and societies.  We enhance our ability to think creatively, respond compassionately and work collaboratively for the good of all. We connect to our innate resilience.

Through Storytelling in community circle  -  Our work is focus on Awakening, Acceptance, Assessment, Action, and Activation…the pathway to healing and hope.
