In May and July 2015 we held two Healing Dialogues for new and returning participants in Los Angeles. The Dialogues were held at the Caritas Center in Culver City, atop a hill overlooking the city. This serene setting provided a quiet space where participants could share their stories with each other and give and receive the gifts of presence and compassion. At each of these gatherings we welcomed both new and returning participants. We began the day with introductions and a meditation on self-compassion. We practiced compassionate listening in small groups evenly divided between the family members of offenders and victims, where participants took turns telling their stories. We came together as a large group and shared about our experiences in the small group. We concluded with a discussion of next steps for continued healing and action.
