While many are still expressing anger over the election results, some are healing and there are plenty of opportunities for that around the Bay Area.

There was a healing walk inside the church on the labyrinth tonight. From San Francisco to Redwood City, people are doing their part to inspire others to come together.

The labyrinth inside Grace Cathedral is considered a unique place of healing.

Where people can go into that space they need to be to work through grief, through loss to encounter joy in moments where it might seem far off," said Jude Harmon.

Pastor Jude Harmon says the election is one day but we get to vote with our lives every day.

16:38 "You may elect today to be generous, to be open-hearted to be kind to people," he said.

Aili Ice is doing just that.

"We call it flower bombing," Ice said. "We just really want to project positivity vs. anger or any frustration."

Peace signs made from petals line the sidewalk in Redwood City.

It seems to be working.

"I think it's beautiful. It's very touching," said Michael Wilcox, a passerby.

Back in San Francisco Tara Mohtadi and Jessica Kenny are hosting free yoga classes at Jackson Playground. They're accepting donations for groups like Planned Parenthood.

"To have this space where they felt they were able to have a little bit of an exhale and do something that felt good and know that they weren't alone," said Tara Mohtadi, a yoga teacher.

"I think it's more important than ever to make sure that we bring people together and people know that their own communities love them and want them," said Rebecca Goldman of San Francisco.

Goldman created the account notesofpeace@gmail.com if anyone would like to join her Saturday as she spreads love to people in the mission.

"We love you, we're here for you and we're so glad you're part of our country and our communities."
