Registration is now open for the free four-day Roots of Reconciliation Workshop. The workshop will be facilitated by the team from Returning to Spirit©, an Indigenous-led non-profit organization which has been delivering experiential reconciliation workshops since 2001.
The workshop is intended for people aged 18 and older who are ready to deepen their experience with reconciliation and are curious and open minded about what reconciliation can look like on a personal level. The insights developed during the workshop create space for participants to discover how previously-held behaviours, judgements, assumptions and perceptions have kept them stuck in a disempowering story.
Two sessions of the workshop will be held, one for people who identify as Indigenous, and one for people who identify as non-Indigenous. The same material will be covered at both, but by having separate sessions, the facilitators and participants can better focus on the different lived realities of each group.
As part of its ongoing commitment to reconciliation, the Diocese of Victoria has provided funding for these workshops. Bishop Gary Gordon completed the Roots of Reconciliation workshop before he became a bishop, and said the experience was fundamental for him: “It gives you the opportunity for a powerful conversation with your true self, and with others.”
Both sessions of the workshop will be held in Duncan, BC, and will run from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm each day. For more information and to register, click on the links below:
