Black/Asian Healing Circle
In the middle of COVID 2020, the Black/Asian Healing Circle was created as a space to share with others how to build a container for processing the violence against the Black community. The George Floyd killing sparked a request and desire to be in community so that there could be a space for reckoning, healing, solidarity, and generosity.
What began as a 4-week intention to train people about how one kind of healing circle can be built, has evolved into a circle that continues to be in service.
It turns out that this space was critically important in early 2021, as Asian elders and others were targeted with random acts of violence. The circle gathers every other Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and new circles are forming to include others who are interested in this experience of compassion in action.
