Session Two


Nov 5, 2019—West Kelowna, BC: Thank you to everyone who attended Champions of Change Session One on October 25th! Champions of Change is an immersive leadership workshop series in West Kelowna happening once a month from October 2019 to May 2020. Join us for our Session Two on Monday, November 18th!


Participant Feedback from Session One:

“This work is not academic but community-focused, and intends to support all folks interested in indigeneyezing.”

“There are a lot of hurdles/barriers inherent to bringing people together for authentic sharing/growing. All of the training activities were valuable independently for their desired lesson, as well as to facilitate the equalization of the group.”


“What I learned will help me to connect to each member of the group I’m facilitating.”

“Kelly is a fantastic facilitator – really warm, humorous, relaxed, fun-loving, supportive – and very clear. All aspects of this session one went really well!”

The goal of Session Two is to ignite your imagination and creative spirit so you can allow more of your strengths and wisdom to sparkle through. Arts-based processes are explored to encourage participants to open up to express what is within themselves, open up to new ways of thinking, and awaken purpose and passion. We will help participants identify and strengthen these passions that can sometimes be hidden or in the background.

[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”146″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]Champions of Change is leadership training that invites you to personally experience and practice change. We coach you to strengthen your capacity for healthier relationships and stronger connections—to reclaim your innate power and agency. The goal is to create culturally safe spaces for community building that support movement towards positive systemic change.

Because we use a coach approach, we focus on the needs and priorities that arise from the specific group assembled for each workshop – so the topics covered in the sessions are both responsive and fluid. You can jump in at any point in the journey and still benefit deeply – whether you take one or all of the workshops.
