IDP: Community Healing Circle: Bimodal Virtual Training - Wednesday, October 6, 2021      12:00 Noon – 3:00 PM
Facilitators: NHCC Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Eda Watts and Venecia Mitchell, NHCC Diversity Success Specialist

​Rooted in indigenous tradition, healing circles serve as a compassion-based platform which provides opportunity for sharing lived truths, emphasizes active listening and being open to differing perspectives.  In this special bimodal training workshop, attendees will first participate in a racial healing circle which will take place during the first 2 hours.

The goal of these circles is to promote human understanding, leading toward racial healing and racial equity. This is a structured facilitated framework in which participants are guided through specific question prompts, dyads, and focuses on sharing experiences. During the second portion of the training, participants will be guided through the components of facilitating a circle, with time for questions and answers.
