It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.

Audre Lorde

Circles open up spaces for healing-centered engagements with one another. We recognize that our identities are intersectional, meaning they are shaped by cultural, political and social environments. Agreements create the container that allows participants of all walks of life to feel safe, speak their truth, be witnessed, and connect with their own inner guidance. In Rumi’s words: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

Healing circles are offered at no charge. If you’re able, we invite you to make a gift to help cover the cost of participating.
  • $12 covers the cost of your participation in one circle
  • $24 covers your participation in one circle and pays it forward for another participant

Circles for women and men


Women healing from injustice

Second Thursday of the month (except July, August, and September)
4:00PM to 5:30PM Pacific Daylight Time
5 pm Denver | 6 pm Chicago | 7 pm New York

This circle will be a safe space for women to come together to talk about what matters to us. All too often, we internalize the stressors of oppression, racism, sexism, and inequality and turn them against ourselves. This takes a big toll on us.

It's time for us to stand up for change, use our voices, and be H.E.A.R.D. (Heal, Empower, Accept, Reset, and Discover).

Supporting one another in a post-Roe world

Second and fourth Monday in September and October
11:00AM to 12:30PM Pacific Daylight Time
noon Denver | 1 pm Chicago | 2 pm New York | 8 pm Paris

In the United States, the Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe vs Wade has left many of us with a range of strong feelings that may be difficult to process alone. In the safe container of a healing circle, we invite you to name your experience, trusting that this will lighten the load, open up spaces to keep going, and do whatever we feel called to do.

Women's circle

Every Friday
10:00AM to 11:30AM Pacific Daylight Time
11 am Denver | noon Chicago | 1 pm New York | 7 pm Paris

For many women, our lives were challenging enough, and now we're affected by unprecedented events that have turned our lives upside down and inside out.

Each day, we watch news of the pandemic, injustices, and a planet in peril. In response, our emotions may vacillate between anxiety and resilience, despair and hope, grief, and love. Just when we need it the most, our normal means of contact, connection, and support have been strained if not uprooted.

Our women’s healing circle offers a safe, supportive space to walk with each other through these times. Each circle is a blend of sharing and silence, compassion, and curiosity. It’s a space where we connect with other women who are experiencing similar challenges, feelings and emotions. Where we can speak truth from our heart without judgment. Our agreements ensure acceptance and confidentiality. We honor our own unique paths to healing and respect the choices of others.

Living with metastatic breast
cancer as an LGBTQ+ person

LGBTQ+ people with metastatic cancers have unique needs and lived experiences. Few resources are specific to this underrepresented and largely underserved population’s needs. This circle seeks to give voice to those who are living with metastatic breast (or other) cancer around topics that matter to LGBTQ+ people: intimacy challenges; healthy relationships; body image; communication with friends, family, and healthcare providers; legacy; and the mundane issues of everyday life. Bring your sense of humor as well as your sorrows—this circle is welcoming and can hold it all!


Living with metastatic breast cancer as an LGBTQ+ person

First and third Thursdays beginning August 4
10:00AM to 11:30AM Pacific Daylight Time
