Emotional Emancipation Circles (EE Circles, EECs) are healing spaces, evidence-informed, psychologically sound, culturally grounded, and community-defined self-help support groups designed to help heal, and end, the trauma caused by the root cause of anti-Black racism.
Please see the topics for the selected dates along with a short description of each topic:
June 1 - Awareness
The first step to solving a problem is to acknowledge a problem is present. What principles and teachings affect our healing? Is it negative or positive? Let's find out together.
July 5th - Defiance
We are allowed to choose what thoughts and practices we will accept and what practices and thoughts we will reject. Let's dive deeper into ourselves and our history to determine what that would look like.
August 3rd - Self Reflection
There is no healing without looking within ourselves. This is a lot harder than looking at others' flaws. This involves looking in the mirror and making an honest evaluation of where you do want to be and also where you no longer desire to stay. Here we will explore this in a dynamic way.
Sept 7th- Accountability
We develop really by accepting our full selves with compassion... Here we learn coping skills to be better than the person we were yesterday.
Oct 5th - Restoration
By taking responsibility for your own thoughts, emotions, actions, and relationships you create levels of restoration that feel a lot like healing. But how? Come out and find out.
November 2nd- Connection
More than ever we notice that everything is connected. What is Afrocentric culture and how does it all connect? This topic will expand on that.
Dec 7th - Model and Serve
This is a trans-denominational space. Spirituality and faith keep us grounded. It maintains. This key will expound on how and also help you determine for yourself how you can connect spiritually.
These topics are subject to change based on what is going on within society. This space places healing and togetherness at the forefront of all that we do. We have the ability to be better and these circles provide the tools, hold spaces for strong connections, and help people connect dots to what healing can look like for them.
We hope to see you in our circles. The more circles you come to the more holistic and in-depth your healing will be. We love to see your process and your growth and send healing and love your way.
