Our POC Well Circle is inspired by the Jewish ritual of Rosh Chodesh — an ancient tradition of gathering and holding space together on each new moon.
At The Well events are for those 18 years old and beyond, and we strive to be an inclusive environment for people of all races, classes, abilities, life stages, religious affiliations, sexual orientations, and gender expressions. This particular event is for those who identify as People of Color.
Why is this event for people of color (POC) only? We know that many spaces in our society are overwhelmingly white, and a POC-only space can be an affirming and strengthening experience. White allies, thanks for understanding the need for this POC space. Have a question? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new Well Circle is typically organized by 1-2 people who lead the process of inviting a small group to form a circle. We have plenty of resources to support our members who are forming new circles.
Circles gather around the new moon and use the month’s Moon Manual to build an intentional space for reflection, storytelling, and support. Every circle is unique and sets their own intentions for the space.
