About this Event

Weekly online Circles for healing, connection, learning, co-creation and joy with Indigenous tools and relationships.

Fridays Jan 29 - March 26, 10am-Noon.

*register just once for the entire series*

For Indigenous front-line workers and collaborators in Indigenous-facing projects and communities across Turtle Island.

Each workshop introduces and activates simple Indigenous tools for healing from trauma and decolonizing community and organizations: accessible, immediate, daily and sharable with members, peers and community. Our aim is to build transformative justice and peacemaking communities in daily actions, in agency collaboration, and in intentional restorative relationships.

Integrate Indigenous practices in ways of being, transforming, healing and growing personally, relationally, and in how we organize.

Workshops are free. Each Session combines:

- Opening song and intention with guest Elders

- Indigenous Land-based trauma healing, art and story therapy, and healing ceremony in small, simple steps that can be integrated every day.

- Teachings in Indigenous Restorative and Decolonizing practices from the Restoring Circles Project including witnessing, embodiment, actualization and gifts, collectivity, conflict evolution tools, allyship, arts, and liberatory, transformative justice and applied peacemaking practices.

- Circle Practice for expression, witnessing, connection, creation and resolution.

These powerful teachings can be shared online. Participants in our online spring series with the Transitions Consortium, a sex-worker advocacy network in Vancouver, BC, said:

"I feel so grounded. With each session I feel connected, clear, and that I can keep doing the work in a good way. I can share all of it with my members. Its so accessible. They love it!"

“The Restoring Circles Workshops are what got me through the month. They're healing, connecting, and real. We are all one here, all of us. These workshops, what we do together, lift my spirit every time.”

OUR TEACHERS are reconised leaders in bringing Indigenous healing practices alive across communities, including:

Susan Powell Inyanskawin, Lakota, Cree, and Anishinaabe

Dr. Beverly Jacobs, Mohawk Nation of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy, Bear Clan, and Associate Professor of Law at University of Windsor

Brittany O'Rourke, Sto:lo, Co-Facilitator for Indigenous Tools for Living

Paulina Jimenez, Mixteca of Oaxaca Mexico, doula, teaching with the cycle passages of loss, rebirth, and ritual.

The Restoring Circles Society Collective is a project of Indigenous and ally counsellors, Elders, teachers and healers that develop practice networks for reconciliation, peacebuilding and communities of healing. We mobilize and activate liberatory, anti-violence practices grounded in Indigenous ways of being and community-based transformative justice Circles, to connect personal & collective transformation with structural decolonization.

Our practice is Power With, inclusive, appreciative, decolonizing, co-creative & collective, cyclical, regenerating, accountable and actualizing of self and community in collective.

The Restoring Collective lives, works and grows with gratitude as guests on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples: Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

This series is made possible with a grant from Indigenous Services Canada.
