Days of Healingyogahealsbelize
“Days of Healing” is a grassroot initiative born as response to a violent social unrest that took place after a gang massacre occurred on Dean Street in Belize City in January 2013. Pioneer and organizer, Perry Smith AKA Stiks, had the vision of peace building among the affected gang rival communities. “Days of Healing” brings together rival gang members and their families one day every month for a day of family fun activities. Michelle Williams and a group of friends started working with Days of Healing three years ago establishing a session of yoga and meditation for children and adults as one of the activities that take place. Rhythm of Change Belize (ROC) continues these once a month sessions which has brought about noticeable awareness of the practices among communities deeply affected by gang violence.
