Question 1. What happens in a circle gathering, like the one you facilitated between Palestinian and Jewish women?
In my circles, we cocreate and extremely potent field of love that changes how we perceive ourselves and others- I call it “Seeing with sacred eyes.” We’re still Jews or Palestinians, Christians or Muslims, but more fundamentally, we’re women on a sacred path. Women have always gathered in hard times to heal, support, and comfort each other. So it feels very natural for us to connect in this way that honors each woman’s unique beauty.
Question 2. You describe your heat-shame as a “huge obstacle to our collective healing.” What do you mean by this?
