“El Circulo” Circle Keeper Process, is based on the National Compadres Network’s, La Cultura Cura Transformative Health and Healing Philosophy. This life view recognizes that within an individual’s, family’s, and community’s authentic cultural values and traditions that there are practices that can serve as the basis to healthy development, restoration, and lifelong wellbeing.
The Circle Keeper process focuses on building on the natural opportunity factors and on what is healthy within an individual, family, community or culture. This indigenous based life view promotes what is right based on culturally grounded physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual, principles and practices.
This philosophical basis and process for gathering people in safe and sacred spaces(Circulo/Circle) allows natural development, growth and healing to take place.
Although the Circulo may be therapeutic, it is not a therapy program.
