This is a four (4) circle series. Each circle, we will explore new topics and expand upon conversations from the previous week. These intimate, virtual gatherings will bring together LGBTQIA+ BIPOC Womxn community members, change-makers, healers, creators, caregivers and neighbors who are committed to personal and communal healing. The circles are a sacred space where deep listening, honest dialogue and meaningful connections occur through conversations and practices facilitated by trained practitioners.
WHAT IS RACIAL HEALING?
Racial healing recognizes the need to acknowledge and tell the truth about past wrongs created by individual and systemic racism and address the present consequences. It is an experience and a tool that can facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that bridge divides created by real and perceived differences. We believe it is essential that before transforming systems and structures we must first transform ourselves.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACIAL HEALING CIRCLE?
A Racial Healing Circle is a two-hour session led by trained Practitioners consisting of both group interactions and smaller, more intimate conversations between two partners called dyads. The experience relies on intentional listening. It can be an emotional experience and even transformational for participants as it can unearth truths and conscious and unconscious biases. It can also raise the awareness, consciousness, compassion, and empathy among those who participate. Racial Healing Practitioners ensure that these circles are confidential, safe spaces for participants to have truthful conversations with one another.
WHO IS TRHT?
Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) is an initiative of the Woods Fund. The goal of our work is to bring people together in order to assess the real cost of racism and profit exploitation on human life and commit to the needed investment to repair the damage to Black, Indigenous, immigrant and working class communities, so that neighborhoods can sustain diverse families and thrive.
