In partnership with the Wellness Almanac, join Tanina Williams of Amawílc in this series of free bi-weekly zoom conversations aimed to provide a safe space to explore reconciliation, decolonization, white fragility and ask hard or awkward questions about how to share this unceded territory in a way that moves us towards better relationship.
The Sharing Circles will continue over the next 6 weeks, meeting again Monday November 9, November 30, December 7, and December 21.
Registration is only required once to be able to attend any/all of the sessions.
Upcoming Sharing Circle weekly themes:
Monday November 9 Chief Dan George
Monday November 30 Dr Lorna Williams
Monday December 7 The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre
Monday December 21 How to Close a Circle, and the Closing of Ours
Each Circle will have a theme and we recommend that before attending each week, participants research something about the theme, and bring it back to the circle, to share with each other.
