Wellness for Sustainability & Resilience
Last year, we did over 20 Professional Development workshops for staff and managers in the non-profit sector and one of the most popular programs is The Healing Arts for Personal & Organizational Wellness™. The program focuses on the implications of secondary trauma stress and provides simple practical self-care tools and techniques to help mitigate its impacts.
In March, we began touring the program across Canada and shared our educational, inspiring, innovative and integrated self-care theories and practices with staff from 23 organizations in Alberta and Ontario.
Looking for practical and impacting PD sessions? Contact us.
In March, we began the SLT™ 10-month mentorship process with a dynamic and bodacious group of women who are leading in a variety of sectors. The women are already experiencing the effects of this program in their personal and professional lives as they remember their power and step into their visions.Next cohort begins Fall 2016 – Men Only. For details, contact SLT™ coordinator, Kemba Akinbo
Women In Advocacy
This year, we chose to amplify our advocacy presence and in January we became members of AWID (Association of Women In Development). In May, we were spotlighted by AWID for our programs that sustain leaders in activism: http://www.awid.org/profiles/sustaining-ourselves-our-activism-our-movements.
In September, we will present at the Black Feminist Forum as part of AWID’s 13th International Forum on Feminist Futures: Building Collective Power for Rights and Justice in Brazil.
During the Black Lives Matter Toronto protest and Black Tent City occupation in March, we were part of a network of healers holding ground with sacred space and nurturing holistic healing, in solidarity with the First Nations community.
