Holding Circles of Healing

“In 2017, we released our labor of love film, “TeachMeToBeWILD: A Story of Hurt Children and their Animal Healers”. This film is a universal healing story that brings together many interconnected elements: children, animals, nature, silence and the power of safe, non-judgemental listening spaces. One of our greatest inspirations to make the film was witnessing how Steve Karlin and John Malloy do not teach the children — rather, they create a “safe space” where the children learn experientially. For more than 50 years, John Malloy has been leading healing circles in vulnerable communities.” What follows is an article and video that vividly illustrate the multi-layered wisdom of his approach.
