To create a sacred and safe space for the Caring Science community to share healing modalities (i.e. Caritas moments, healing poems, meditation, yoga, music, etc.), and connect with one another.

  • Hold a monthly 1 hour zoom session with a set structure
  • Allow for 10-15 minutes of open sharing at the end
  • Have a group of moderators to organize and facilitate each session (rotate)
  • Assign 1 moderator per session/set a schedule for 6 months
Structure of Each Session
  • Opening reflection, calling us to the space in stillness and presence (by moderator/facilitator)
  • Offer space for a maximum of 3 healing, sharing moments of 5-10 minutes each
  • Open sharing time around 10-15 minutes
  • Closing (5 minutes)
  • Caritas Healing Connection sessions are not an alternative for professional therapy or training.
  • We celebrate each other but this is not a space to showcase professional achievements.
