Friday April 21, 2023
8:30am - 4:30pm PT | In person (Victoria, BC)
The inn at Laurel Point, 680 Montreal Street, Victoria BC, V8V 1Z8
About the workshop:
During this experiential workshop we will explore our personal role in supporting the revival of the values that worked so beautifully in Indigenous villages for thousands of years. We will also explore in‐depth the affects of Residential Schools and Canada’s Policy of Assimilation. This workshop is geared to solutions rather than recrimination and is a great forum in which to ask questions.
Participants who participate in these often emotion provoking workshop experiences comment that while they understood a bit about the issue on a cognitive level, after participation in Building Bridges Through Understanding the Village they understand on a deep emotional level as well. The workshop is done from a non-blame and non shame perspective and invites all participants to become a part of the healing that IS already happening. Kathi’s work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of ‘The Circle and The Box’ and by many Elders' teachings.
- Foundational learning for moving into reconciliation in response to the TRC Calls to Action and The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
- A cognitive and emotional understanding of traditional First Nations values.
- A deep and emotional insight into the depth and intergenerational effects of Colonization
This workshop is limited to 30 participants.
