Healing Circles Healthcare believes that healthcare culture can be transformed through healing circles


Collegial disconnection is systemic throughout healthcare. It’s a byproduct of its pace, complexity, and hierarchical culture. It’s evident in stress levels, sense of belonging, incivility, burnout, and safety risks.


Healing circles is a foundational practice of authentic human connection. Authentic connections are a direct antidote for social disconnection.

“Social connection can transform our whole health and well-being.” (U.S. Surgeon General, 2023)

Among all the broad quality improvement initiatives in healthcare, none will achieve full potential without a strong foundation of collegial connections.

Social connection is as critical as air, food and water;
without it, all else struggles to exist.
