Nurse-Led Healing Circles for Self-Healing During Times of Crisis and Beyond
Hi everyone, I'm a holistic nurse practitioner, a health coach and a healing circles facilitator.
I am a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association. The Austin Texas Chapter of AHNA was planning a regional conference in May focusing on self-compassion and self-healing for nurses and one medium for this is healing circles.
This all changed with Covid-19.
In response to hearing the needs from the front-line nurses, my colleagues and I decided to offer healing circles with the intention of self-compassion for self-healing for nurses.
We offer these virtually using Zoom, free of any charge or solicitation. This is our way of giving back to our nurse community.
Healing Circles help us step out of ordinary time into a safe and accepting environment in which each of us can explore our own healing.
Healing Circles are places where we speak with intention and listen with attention.
We speak the truth from our heart to begin our self-healing process.
HEALING CIRCLE AGREEMENTS
~ We treat each other with kindness and respect.
~ We speak with intention. We speak our truth from our heart.
~ We listen with compassion, curiosity and attention.
~ We honor each other’s unique ways to healing and don’t presume to advise or fix or try to save each other.
~ We hold all stories shared in the circle confidential.
~ We trust each of us has guidance we need within us and we rely on the
power of silence to access it.
