Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word that means non-harm, and non-violence.  

MEET THE COLLECTIVE

Facilitators for the Ahimsa Collective have their own robust professional lives and choose to come together on issues of trauma and violence. Our deepest value is to foster beloved community amongst all of our facilitators, and operate as a caring community.  The Ahimsa Collective started in January 2016, and our facilitator and collaborator network is growing.
