The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery have exposed to the world the painful truths that we already know:

... That the wounds of systemic racism and injustice are deep, raw, and generational... 

... That institutional change isn't just going to happen from the top down... rather, it must be led by and for the people... 

... And that change must start from within. Because if we don't heal the underlying wounds that fuel fear, hate, injustice, and harm - we'll simply be building new systems that replicate trauma and violence again... and again... and again.

Healing Cycles of Harm (HCH)
 is a grassroots community healing program that helps disrupt vicious cycles of interpersonal and systemic trauma and violence.

Over 9 sessions, participants join together to:
  • bear witness to each other's sorrows and strengths
  • discover our inherent power to heal
  • practice compassionate accountability for self and others - and
  • plant the seeds for individual and collective transformation

A collaboration between Gratitude Alliance + Reclaiming Our Own Transcendence (RooT) - HCH is launching its 4th and 5th cohorts this summer - to respond to the urgent need for supportive, BIPOC and White affinity spaces to connect, reflect, and heal in community.

Your support will help us provide low cost, sliding scale tuition to folks who need this work the most - while supporting equitable labor for our facilitators, who represent queer, trans, and BIPOC communities.

This work is led by and for folks who have survived, caused, and enabled harm -- and those who find themselves in cycles of physical and emotional violence and who want to explore and heal the ways in which our wounds fuel harm to ourselves and others.

"Epic. I've been talking about it non-stop. What a revelation to learn what my sadness wants, what my anger wants, the point of a resourcing practice... This has impacted me and my approach to my work as a sexual violence crisis counselor."

 

"Healing Cycles of Harm introduced me to a different way of living. I realized how  triggers carried out actions which hurt no one but me . This work has allowed me to understand the cause, accept, and overcome my depression, addiction, anxiety, and discomfort as I can now transform it into true happiness..."

 

 "I felt so much and so changed and better in touch with my healing journey, my body, my trauma. I have been recommending it to all healing seekers that I know..."
