Affinity Circles & Retreats
In the circle, we are all equal.
There is no one in front of you, there’s nobody behind you.
No one is above you, no one is below you.
The circle is sacred because it’s designed to create unity.
– Lakota wisdom
Our affinity circle programs are designed to create environments for spiritual and emotional healing and connection among a group of individuals who carry with them a common identity. The goal of such programming is to honor the profound healing and connection that can come from a space in which one feels safe to be more vulnerable, honest, and authentic in processing experiences, doubts, questions, or beliefs related to the shared identity within the circle. We believe that such affinity spaces can give activists and community leaders the courage and confidence to step back into the diverse worlds we all live in with courage, confidence, and greater resilience.
