Healing Circle Locations

The local Healing Circles provide the safe ‘container’ for veterans and People of Strong Heart (civilians) to tell their story, listened to with a compassionate heart, and offer the soul healing necessary for wellness. Our circles are open and they are growing in number. 

Weekly or bi-weekly meetings of WJH are called “Healing Circle.” The Healing Circle is designed around ceremony. The culture of the host organization may use Native American ceremony while others use traditional religious practices. The common factor is the unique experience of the veteran and their family expressed through a sacred ritual.

Join a circle near you, or contact us if you are interested in finding out more about how to start a circle in your area.
