Join our Healing Circles

YWCA St. Paul, in partnership with YMCA of the North, invites members of the Black community living, working and/or fellowshipping in the Midway area of St. Paul to join our Healing Circles, a supportive, facilitated space to affirm your culture, community and lived experience, and to share dialogue and feelings to promote health and well-being.

Healing Circles will utilize a circle and restorative approach to healing to help alleviate the negative impacts of racism, alienation and isolation. We are committed to creating a safe, confidential and welcoming community with you.
This program is intended to advance Black intergenerational (from tweens to elders) relationships and community building for families and communities.

Healing Circles will be held every third Thursday from 7:00-8:30 p.m., beginning March 4. Due to COVID-19, Healing Circles will be held virtually on Zoom (registration required). In-person events may be added with appropriate safety precautions.
