In simple terms, a Healing Circle is a safe haven where patients and caregivers can voice their opinions; and experiences without any fear of being judged or feeling guilty. When dealing with a life-threatening illness like cancer, the importance of sharing and expressing what’s on one’s mind cannot be overstated.
Healing Circle provides a safe haven for cancer patients and their caregivers. The participants of a Healing circle actively contribute to the process of universal healing; by keeping an open mind and a heart full of kindness, benefiting not only themselves but everyone around them. They talk, pour their hearts out, and enlist the help of their inner guides to progress further along their respective paths. They always discuss the importance of love and care at all Healing Circle sessions and how they can heal any ailment given enough time. Healing Circles are a physical manifestation of that Love and Care. In fact, they are a gathering place where humanity and kindness meet and exchange notes.
Healing Circles allow us to leave the confines of everyday life and enter a safe and accepting space where we can explore our healing.
We explore ways to deepen our capacity to heal, alleviate our suffering, and find meaning in both challenge and joy with open minds.
We can access our own inner guidance with open hearts to understand where the most significant healing; —in body, emotions, mind, and spirit—can take.
What agreements protect a circle?
We are kind and respectful to one another. With compassion and curiosity, we listen. In other words, we respect each other’s individual healing paths; and don’t try to fix, advise, or comment on each other’s journeys. We keep all stories in the Circle private. We also believe that each of us has the guidance we require within us, and we trust the power of silence to help us find it.
What are the roles and practices of the Healing Circle?
Every member of the Circle has an equal voice and is responsible for their own healing leadership.
Three roles can aid in the smooth operation of the Circle:
The Host calls the Circle together and observes the flow of the Circle.
The Guardian keeps track of time, rings the bell, and safeguards the agreements.
If the Circle so desires, a scribe can take notes.
When a Circle has completed its task, the Host should know how and when to bring the Circle to a successful conclusion.
What’s a simple and typical Healing Circle?
Silence, candle, and optional music are used to enter the Circle (poem, music, etc.)
Check-in or Heart sharing – talking stick mode – multiple rounds possible
Harvesting or Learning – draw on collective wisdom in the room or from outside resources; this can be done in an informal setting.
Leaving the Circle or Closing it.
Note: It is critical to spend time socialising before and after Circle.
What are other types of Healing Circles?
Healing Circles are safe spaces for people who share a common condition to share their stories and learn from one another.
Discovery Circles are for people who like to express themselves creatively in order to process whatever they’re going through.
Learning Circles are for people with a common interest in a topic or who want to improve their healing abilities.
Caring Circles support family, friends, professionals, and volunteers who care for others.
How can we take our Circle work to the next level?
Rituals, art, poetry, music, and movement are examples of creative expression. By addressing soul-related issues such as meaning and purpose, grief, fear, and uncertainty. Healing touch, healing intention, and subtle energy sensitivities are all examples of energy work.
Deepening our own personal work – Love, trust, compassion, and gratitude are just a few examples.
We invite you to join our circles if you have recently been diagnosed, are in the early stages of treatment, are in the middle of treatment or have lived with cancer for some time. You might try to make sense of the cancer challenge, bear witness to your own or others; suffering or loss, and investigate your own personal choices and healing capacity.
Our healing circles provide a safe and encouraging environment for us to walk through these difficult times together. In fact, each Circle is a mix of sharing and silence, compassion and awe. Acceptance and confidentiality are guaranteed as a result of our agreements. We respect each other’s choices and honour our own unique healing paths.
