Our Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal trainers form the heart of our organization
, supported by our Keepers and the Board of Directors. We design and deliver workshops that reconcile one's spirit and with the perceived "other." We move individuals, families, organizations and whole communities forward through the principles of personal empowerment and community leadership. We welcome community partners
to continue the process of transformation.
Our work goes beyond healing. It provides conditions for transformation and mindfulness in all relationships. All Canadians are invited to engage and help us as a nation to move forward more powerfully to hope, possibility and choice for the next generation.
