When we come together, we heal...

And that's what CIT is all about.

Circle in Truth is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to ignite personal evolution and social change by deepening our relationship with ourselves and others. We offer training and education for adults to facilitate youth and adult talking circles.

We provide a safe space to drop the masks  — to see and be seen.

We’re in the midst of a  connection crisis

Despite our increasingly plugged in, tuned in world, more people than ever are anxious, afraid, sad and lonely. Our youth are especially suffering. "Rates of teen depression and suicide have skyrocketed since 2011. It’s not an exaggeration to describe iGen as being on the brink of the worst mental-health crisis in decades." 

We believe it doesn’t need to be this way. 



This work saves lives.

Growing research indicates that healthy relationships are key for thriving. Yet how to have them, with ourselves and others, isn’t something that’s taught in schools or the workplace.

Dubbed "The Antidote to Social Media", we offer time-tested methods and warm, welcoming places for teens to practice deep connection, compassionate communication, and how to navigate conflict towards personal and collective growth.

We’ve been offering these Circles to youth and adults for 25 years and are still humbled every time a participant tells us that this work saved their life.

“I never experienced depression in high school because being a part of a talking circle allowed me to express my feelings and feel understood and unashamed of what I was working with. I created incredibly deep relationships with my friends with whom I was in group - friendships that remain into my 30s. It gave me the tools of relationship that so many folks never learn - how to communicate in a way that opens others up instead of shutting them down. I’m eternally grateful for my time in circle and for the way it has shaped my life as an adult.”
