Healing Circles

Gathering together in a circle to heal is a primordial human tradition. Coming into the circle we move outside our normal sense of space and time, into a sacred space. This sacred space opens a portal allowing us to connect to a deeper wisdom within, to the power of community, love, and healing intentions around us, and to the vast open-sky-space of transformation and healing that we might call heaven consciousness. Bringing this creative energy down to earth, and into the nitty-gritty details of our everyday lives, is the practice of The Healing Circle.

The Process of The Healing Circle

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Awakening Heart
  • Listening with Compassion
  • Vulnerability & Honesty
  • Imagination
  • Transformational Play

  • Insight
  • Letting Go
  • Embodied Presence
  • Affirmations
  • Commitments
  • Dedication


Beginning with contemplative and mindfulness practices such as meditation, yoga, Qi Gong and prayerful intention we prepare the ground for the healing circle practice. Then speaking from our truth, both from our brokenness and our wholeness, we discover our present centered healing intentions. Listening to others around the circle with patience and compassion, healing begins as we drop into the universal themes and archetypes of the human journey.

Then we are ready to enter into the open space of the circle to play. In our willingness to play we extend our imagination into what is possible for us. In play we also develop awareness-insight into what we hold onto as obstacles, recurring habits, emotional patterns, and distorted cognitive projections that prevent us from moving forward. Releasing the old cloak of who we think we are, we arrive whole, in the here and now, to embody our life energy, free from the past.

Witnessing and celebrating together this playful transformation we expand its power and seal it in the mutual commitment, healing intention and confidentiality of the circle. Dissolving into silence, and meditation we reconnect with the sacred ground. Arising we review our commitments, design and proclaim affirmations. Finally we seal the transformational play of the healing circle with a heartfelt dedication for all.
