Hurt people hurt people, but healed people heal people.

This panel explores the dynamic relating of healing individuals and healing society. We know that the collective can’t be healed without healed individuals. But it is very hard to have centered, grounded, open and authentic individuals when so much of the structures of our society work against that healing, especially in communities of color.

This panel explores the role that community plays in our individual journeys toward healing. Trauma is experienced in different ways and to different degrees by different communities; and the resources for healing are also not evenly distributed. What can a Conscious City do to expand access, knowledge and empathy to foster more healing.
