Healing Circles are a new supportive programme from Aratika Trust. These are facilitated peer-to-peer cancer support groups.
We recognize that you walk a unique right path, your own aratika, on a cancer journey.
Experience is the best guide for anyone on the challenging pathway of illness and recovery.
To assist you with peer support on your journey Aratika offers experienced facilitators who will guide you with shared agreements and processes.
We hope that this Healing Circle programme will empower you with an experience of participating in collective wisdom.
Healing Circles will be offered throughout the year for weekly terms. The groups are limited in number, but we encourage you to sign up for our waiting list as new groups will be created when we assess there is need.
Because listening is as important as sharing in a healing circle we ask that you commit to being present for the entire period of the weekly meeting. You can sign up for one term and continue in the next term after a break. Once a term begins the group will be closed until the beginning of the next term.
Having been diagnosed with Cancer this year has been a journey that has been busy with not much time to contemplate about life and what next. Yet through this time, I have been acutely aware of what has contributed to my diagnosis of Cancer.
After my treatment, I suddenly felt as though there was no-one out there that I could talk to or who might understand all the conflicting emotions that follow a journey like this one. I searched and found Aratika Trust as a source for that outlet.
My time spent getting to know some of you has been important to me and helped me feel less alone. Only alone because even though I have support in my life, no one has been through a similar journey.
