The reality of acts of violence against the Asian community lunged into the forefront of the national news with the murder of eight people in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Facilitating a Listening Circle Training
6:00 – 8:00 pm EDT
This session is full. Check back to the DENA website for announcements regarding upcoming trainings.
Our communities need opportunities to process the personal and collective impact of emotionally charged events. From the effects of COVID-19 and racism or to natural disasters, we seek healthy forums in which to express our feelings and truly hear one another. With roots in indigenous cultures around the world, listening circles provide people an opportunity to speak and listen to each other in an atmosphere of safety, decorum, and equality. Listening circles emphasize storytelling for cultivating empathy. To help people gain a shared sense of understanding and emotional connection, these circles can be used in communities, workplaces, schools, organizations, neighborhoods, universities, and families.
Regardless of the topic you choose, you will learn to facilitate listening circles for any topic your community requires.
Please note that we will keep a waitlist if we reach full registration. You will receive information regarding the Zoom link a day prior.
