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

Audre Lorde

Our 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. Our agreements create the container that allows participants of all walks of life to feel safe, speak their truth, and be witnessed, and to 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.”

Women healing from injustice

Second Thursday of the month
4:00PM to 5:30PM Pacific Standard 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).

Women's circle

Every Friday
10:00AM to 11:30AM Pacific Standard 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.

Circles on race and culture


Asian/Pacific American (API) Circle

First and third Saturday
8:00AM to 9:30AM Pacific Standard Time
9 am Denver | 10 am Chicago | 11 am New York | 5 pm Paris

Every year in May, we celebrate Asian and Pacific Islanders' (API) heritage in the U.S. While this celebration reminds people of our rich cultural heritage and our contribution to building this great country, the increasing report of crimes against the Asian and Pacific Islander community also reminds us that, regardless of how many generations we have been in this country, we are still seen as foreigners and strangers. Now, more than ever, it's important for us as a community to remember how our ancestors have sacrificed and paved the way for us. For centuries, API’s lives in the U.S. often have been bittersweet, full of trauma and triumph. Violence and discrimination might have broken us like the lotus with torn pedals. But our ancestors have planted in us the deep roots. Again and again, together, we will rise out of the mud with dignity and grace.

Learning Circle: Owning Our Whiteness 3

Weekly on Saturdays from January 8 to January 29, 2022
10:00AM to 11:30AM Pacific Standard Time
11 pm Denver | 12 pm Chicago | 1 pm New York | 7 pm Paris

For far too long, many of us have been oblivious to our own unwitting participation in systemic racism, sometimes ignorant of our history and our privilege, and often blind to our subtle acts of exclusion.

It is time for white folks to step up – to stop relying on people of color to teach us about racism. It is our work to do. As Kamala Harris said: “There is no vaccine for racism, we have to do the work.”

Come join us for inner healing work to unpack our collective grief, with small steps toward reparation in healing inequity and injustice.

Please commit to all four sessions.
