Go deep, heal, & tell your story
Do you think about color as a race? Is language an issue for you? Are you able to become a love finder? For over 30 years we have held monthly Racial Healing Circles that are held on the last Wednesday of every month and Mindful Drumming Meditations that are hosted on the last Friday of every month. These monthly community building dialogues are for the world community. The theme of the Circles will continue to be the Principles of Attitudinal Healing. The theme of this Circle is “We can focus on the whole of life rather than the fragments.” The Attitudinal Healing Principle that we will focus on this month is #10. "We can focus on the whole of life rather than the fragments."
The Circle will begin at 7:30 PM. Each month there is volunteer facilitator. All are invited.
"Feelings that are denied cannot be released; feelings imprison us until they are acknowledged." - Aeeshah Clottey
We invite you to be open, vulnerable and gain personal strength through the healing power of storytelling!

Over 100 pieces of original art and writings by youth that spread a conscious message of love, justice, and environmental awareness.

ArtEsteem is Attitudinal Healing Connection’s award-winning art and literacy program that develops creative, engaged, and successful children and youth through building knowledge and emotional, social, academic and intellectual skills. Founded in 1995, ArtEsteem engages students and supports their positive development – body, mind, and heart. Participants discover how to self-reflect and dream, as well as focus on their tasks and “follow through” by completing their art projects. Our methods guide students to think practically about the world and their abilities to manifest positive and creative outcomes. We ask participants to re-define the self as a hero with embodied superpowers to create a more loving and peaceful world. Superheroes imagined by students have been used as the conceptual designs and inspiration for the Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project.

This is an annual Black History Month event hosted by the Attitudinal Healing Connection to raise funds for the ArtEsteem Program- a self-esteem building and skills for at promise children and youth.
Join Kokomon Clottey for an experiential gathering of Mindful Drumming, movement and deep inner work. This is a Workshop. Mindful Drumming comes from the twin concepts of rhythm and sound. It is a way to uncover the different levels of communication and connect straight to the heart. Experience the ancient art of synchronistic rhythms and sounds for healing and unleashing the spirit of human potential. Kokomon Clottey is a native of Ghana, West Africa and is the author of "Mindful Drumming, Ancient Wisdom of Unleashing the Human Spirit and Building Community."
Founded in Oakland, California in 1989, AHC works to eliminate violence by supporting creative and educational programs for adults, youth and children–that transform the human spirit in order to build peaceful and loving communities for all humanity.
Join us for the Mindful Drumming Meditation with Kokomon Clottey. This is a synchronistic experience for healing, happiness, deep listening, rejuvenation and community building. This is a time to be inspired to be the change that you want to see in the World.
This is the 1st month of the year and the Attitudinal Healing Principle that we will focus on while we drum is, "The essence of our being is love."
This will be the first Mindful Drumming Meditation session at our new office location, 1996 Mandela Parkway in Oakland, CA. Drums will be provided.
Space is limited for this event. Be on time. No entry will be granted after 7:35, because we do not want to interrupt the meditation.
You are welcome to join us for the
Mindful Drumming Meditation!
It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an advanced student of A Course in Miracles. All are welcome to join the group at any point in time! This group is facilitated by a Nondenominational Ordained Minister, Barbara Tavres, a student of the Course for the last 25 years and a world renown Jazz Musician, Brett King Cosby.

- A Course in Miracles is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.
- A Course in Miracles does not aim at teaching the meaning love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance.
