We are a community of people like you who believe that together we can transform violence into peace, intolerance into respect, and hopelessness into resilience.
We’re getting out the message that violence is unacceptable and co-creating an ecosystem of participatory, community-based support that puts the power of everyday change in everyone’s hands and leaves only the most complicated cases to the specialists.
Information, awareness-building campaigns and the transformation of culture through culture.
Strong communities provide healthy social environments for individual wellbeing, collective prosperity, and support in times of crisis.

Something magical happened in the circleIt was so amazing that it led us to reflect... and to say thank you.
A thousand times thank you. Because you can’t imagine what we’ve been through and what we achieved thanks to this acceptance, to having listened, and mostly, to having embraced it. The circle accompanies you... sincerely, spontaneously and with human experiences.

The circle of lifeThat’s the first thing I thought of when they told me about the healing circles. [...] You meet with other people... and you share... and you realize you’re not alone. What the person next to you shares may be what you are living. And if you haven’t lived it, you can still find a way to help that person resolve something.

Everyone deserves a violence-free life.
A “PEARL OF INSPIRATION” JUST FOR YOU
A pearl of inspiration is a place to start or to continue a healing journey, to learn from each other’s life experiences or to connect with specialists. A place to discover a word, a phrase, a song, a painting that helps us grow as human beings or create a better world
