The Lummi CEDAR Project acts as a fiscal sponsor and helps in the coordination of Peacemaking Circle work.

The Peacemaking Circle is a practice of deep listening and story sharing which builds trust and relationships amongst people.  The Peacemaking Circle process taps into both ancient practices and modern processes to create trust, intimacy, goodwill, belonging, generosity, and reciprocity. Peacemaking Circles intentionally create a sacred space that lifts barriers between people, opening fresh possibilities for connection, collaboration, and understanding. These circles can hold the tensions and emotions that contribute to healing. The process is never about changing others, but rather is an invitation to change one’s relationship with oneself, to the community, and to the wider universe.

In conjunction with the Lummi Peacemaking Circle Leadership Team, we help coordinate a monthly Community Healing Circle every second Thursday of the month, at Northwest Indian College “Log Building,” 4:30-7:30pm, everyone is welcome.

We will offer multiple 3-Day Introductory Peacemaking Circle each year in or near Lummi Nation.

The Lummi Peacemaking Circle Team consists of Lummi Nation Tribal members, Lummi CEDAR Project staff, and staff and faculty from Whatcom Community College.
