Building Bridges Through Understanding the Village

About the Workshop and Facilitator
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. 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.
The workshop will be facilitated by Kathi Camilleri. Kathi’s work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of Jann Derrick’s “The Circle and The Box” and by many Elders’ teachings.
Hosted by the Vancouver Quakers and the Unitarian Church of Vancouver
Cost: Suggested donation $20 per person. This is an adult-oriented event. We are exploring childcare options for those who need it; please email us for more information.
Refreshments and a lunch of soup and bannock will be provided.
