Ubuntu Healing Circles
For People of Colour

Ubuntu Healing Circles

Ubuntu Healing Circles are supportive and confidential gatherings that help Africans who are experiencing emotional pain and crisis.  Ubuntu Healing and Talking Stick Circles aim to be the initial entry point for healing. Participants share their stories and feelings; deepen their understanding of the impact of pain and hurting on their lives living in the diaspora; learn about and practice self-care strategies, and identify local resources that can help them overcome their pain.

The Talking Stick

The Talking Stick is an indigenous Australian Aborigins word which is called the hocokah and consists of people who sit together in a talking circle, in prayer, in ceremony, and are committed to helping one another and to each other’s healing. 

Talking circles are a great way of bringing people together to create a safe and positive environment to raise and discuss various relevant issues.

Healing Circle Retreats

Ubuntu Healing Circles Retreats  are held in small, intimate groups (10 – 12 participants), in a beautiful, tranquil space. The retreat hotels offers private-room accommodation, meditation, wellness and fresh organic meals

The retreat event teams includes psychologist, a meditation teacher, and a masseuse, who are present throughout the entire retreat to facilitate the group and individual processes and a myself Cognitive Coach where I will offer hands-on activities that will help participants to find their life purposes. 

The retreat facilitates two parallel processes that of the group and individual exploration.
