Services for the day before
Services for the day after
Give basic education to people who want to channel their own emotions into actions that focus on reconciliation instead of separation.
Give people inside and outside Iran the tools to organize healing circles in their own communities.
Connect to organizers and support them, after this program ends, with emotional, financial and educational resources. So they can integrate Kingian nonviolence and healing work in their communities.
What does the healing circle look like?
We sense a place where people can mourn their losses and celebrate the beauties of life. Experienced facilitators will guide a 1,5 hour, online circle that starts with some grounding exercise. After that, the floor is open to both grieving and celebrations. With sufficient pauses and caring attention, grief can be transformed into generative energy. At the end of the circle, each person asks themselves to take one step that is within their capacity to walk towards nonviolence in their life and in the movement.
What will the classes look like?
We will invite people with experience in nonviolent action to offer their wisdom in 1,5 hour online sessions. Each session will look somewhat different. Sometimes it will be a conversation with Q&A, sometimes it will be a very structured exercise a facilitator will guide. Each time we focus on offering an exercise or something strategic to the participants.
Will the classes and circles be in English or Parsi?
Some will be in English and some in Parsi. In either case, there will be live interpretation available for participants.
