Hollyhock 2016

Oct 4, 2016—Cortes Island, BC: This past summer IndigenEYEZ hosted an introspective 5-day leadership training at Hollyhock. Community leaders from around BC attended and found a renewed connection to the land, to inner healing, to self-awareness, and to holistic leadership.

Supported by the pristine beauty of the west coast, the training was co-facilitated by Kim Haxton & Kelly Terbasket. In the following clip, Kim talks about the goals of the training.

Over the course of the 5 days a mirror was placed in front of each of the participants so they could see themselves and how they navigate shared leadership, as well as the roles they normally take on in team dynamics. It was deep work – but also playful!  

A highlight workshop took place on the beach. Listen to program director Kelly Terbasket’s description:

A strong leader must be working on themselves first, constantly becoming aware of their own biases, beliefs, blocks, and what masks they wear.  One of the introspective tools used by IndigenEYEZ to become aware of these biases is visualization. Lead facilitator Kim Haxton explains:

I loved the workshop! It was very powerful and a whole lot of fun. I felt safe and really heard. I have done a lot of healing work already, but this process took it to a whole other level. I was authentically expressing myself in front of other Indigenous people who totally understood my pain; it was very validating to say the least. I made good connections and I look forward to the next module!!
