COMMUNITY H.E.A.R.T Circles
FOR COMMUNITIES, ORGANIZATIONS, TEAMS, MOVEMENTS, AND ECOSYSTEMS
KLBRI’s Community H.E.A.R.T Circles curriculum is a healing-centered collective capacity building curriculum that serves as a vehicle to explore the ways in which interpersonal and collective harm is replicated in the organizational, community, and movement context.
Building Collective Capacity
Community H.E.A.R.T Circles equips participants with practical tools and strategies to disrupt harmful patterns, foster empathy, and co-create inclusive spaces. Our curriculum empowers participants to become agents of change, fostering a ripple effect of healing, understanding, and collaboration. Together, we build collective capacity to dismantle systemic oppression, ensuring that every voice is heard and valued.
The Heart of Our Approach
H.E.A.R.T stands for Healing, Equity, Awareness, Restoration, and Transformation – core principles that guide our curriculum. Through a holistic blend of interactive sessions, dialogues, workshops, and reflective practices, participants embark on a journey of self-discovery and collective healing. By addressing the roots of harm, we empower individuals and communities to rewrite narratives and reshape dynamics, restore trust, fostering equity and solidarity.
Each experience is uniquely developed to meet the needs of the group and the individuals within them. We begin with a consensus building phase where we meet with advocates, staff, community members, and/or impacted individuals to explore the narratives and challenges held by the group and its individuals. Together, we draft a list of goals the collective has for the process. It is key at this stage that all engaged parties have a way to examine and agree to goals for the process.
The collective or organization can make suggestions to the proposal for revision. This collaborative process is part of our practice in centering consent and the inherent wisdom that participants have about their collective and individual healing needs. Once all consent to the experience, we move into capacity building curriculum.
Whether you are an organization aiming to cultivate a healthy work environment, a community striving for unity, or a movement dedicated to social change – our Community H.E.A.R.T Circles Curriculum offers a tailored pathway to healing-centered transformation.
