Working Through Loss And Grief

Working Through Loss And Grief

Exploring loss and the journey of grieving is an act of courage and self love. The pathway to peace and a return of daily joy can be long, but when we are willing to accept support in processing loss, grief can be transformed to a happier place.

This workshop will give individuals an opportunity to work through some of their pain from the losses they have experiences throughout their life. The goal of this workshop is to create and sustain an environment that is comfortable and safe for all participants to process thoughts and feelings.

Understanding Lateral Violence

Understanding Lateral Violence

This workshop will focus on the signs of ‘Lateral Violence.’ We will take a look at what that term means, the techniques used to hold it in place, information used to justify lateral violence, and how it can be shifted or stopped in organizations, the community, and on a personal level. We will explore historical events beginning at colonization that have created or contributed to pain that continues to express itself in tragic and harmful ways.

The goal is to bring a clearer understanding to the term ‘Lateral Violence,’ so participants can have an opportunity to see if they in any way contribute to the harmful ways people treat one another. When understanding is gained, then action can be taken to begin to stop the pain and the cyclic, habitual ways in which individuals harm one another.

Lateral Violence is not always intentional. The important thing is to understand more clearly what is going on and why, so that we can begin to manage our power in more life-serving ways, so that more joyful, loving expression/communication is shared in the work place, our homes and in the general community.

Reclaiming Traditional Parenting Skills

Reclaiming Traditional Parenting Skills

In this workshop we will look at the beauty of the traditional ways in which our ancestors parented. The objective is to explore ways to enhance the gift of parenting to the next generations, offering skills and reminders about teaching respect, honour and strength to the children.

Our Elders have taught us that what we do to the current generation will ripple through the next seven generations. It takes a whole village to raise a child. Many have forgotten these teachings due to the changes and traumas imposed on the Aboriginal people of this land. Residential School was an institution; institutionalized parenting is what has resulted after two hundred years of our Elders losing their role in our children’s lives. The hugs did not come in Residential School; instead there was abuse, isolation and abandonment. Loving intent is to be a nurturing parent, but what happens when such parenting has not been modelled?
The goal of this workshop is to explore and bring forth a deeper understanding of what has been forgotten from our traditional teachings about parenting. It is an invitation for participants to be open to exploring how to be the best parent that they can be, and perhaps to re-parent themselves.

The Law of Attraction—Working With Deliberate Creation

The Law of Attraction—Working With Deliberate Creation

Creating a world that is filled with wealth in every area of our lives is a wonderful idea, but how can it be done?

In this workshop we will learn how to work with the “Power of Deliberate Creation,” through understanding the “Law of Attraction.” The “Power of Deliberate Creation” will show you how to create a winning mindset, let go of the past, and create changes that you want (with ease), so individuals are more consistently moving in a positive direction.

Create new and empowering beliefs, discover what you want, find your path, and attract and recognize the right opportunities. Sometimes old beliefs need to be challenged in order to create a new and more wonderful life.

The objective of this workshop is to offer a clear understanding of how to be a conscious creator. And the goal is to have participants begin to apply these tools, making them deliberate creators of their world, rather than creating by default. This workshop offers understanding of how to be more empowered and accountable for what we, as individuals, create in our world. The workshop is filled with strong, fun teachings that shift life into a much more consistently positive place.

Excuses No More

Excuses No More

Many of us have postponed our life by making excuses. We tell others our story about how we can’t make the changes we want to make. We repeat these stories often, which allows us to put off taking charge of our life.

Fear plays a big factor in supporting our excuses. When we let go of these excuses, we make room for transformation.

For some, like is managed through their excuses. It can be hard to admit we use excuses to justify our fears.
