The Heart Circle Mission is to Facilitate Unity.
This is accomplished by promoting the spread of Peace Work® under its own or any other name.
Peace Work is a remarkably transformative community-building adventure, modeled after the Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP).
The Alternatives to Violence involves circle-based group activity, comfortably involving up to 25 folks, that engages, transforms and co-creates what Martin Luther King, Jr. (a Godfather of the miracle) calls: “Beloved Community.”
Created in response to the Attica (prison) uprising by people incarcerated in prisons, Quakers & Civil Rights Leaders,
AVP is constructed of a wide range of interactive activities arranged in specific ways to affirm, foster interpersonal skills, share power, build trust, encourage play: invite the life experience and wisdom of each participant forward… which ultimately facilitates a deeply bonded community!
The foundational concept of “Transforming Power,” something we all define for ourselves, opens us to the idea that power is always available, to transform a moment, a dynamic… or an undervalued a life.
