Facilitator Cecilia Zanotti shares a powerful song that was taught to her by the Pataxó people of Bahia Brazil. The song is intended to be used as a song to bring the group back together and to activate healing after discord or difficult conversations.
Tips: This song works best if you encourage everyone to try to make eye contact with others in the group as they move around the circle.
