Session Three

Nov 26, 2019—West Kelowna, BC: Inspired by the wisdom of our ancestors and impacted by current scientific knowledge join us to become a champion of change for the future.

This is not a workshop filled with information to be downloaded, but rather it is an integrative holistic PROCESS, a PRACTICE with the potential to strengthen your leadership skills.

Reclaiming creativity and imagination is key to healing the patterning of our brains towards disconnection and dissolving the barriers we put up around our hearts for self-protection.

Research into neuroplasticity shows that when we feel validated, heard, and seen by others, our brains can heal. Experiential learning and the expressive arts have been shown to be deeply effective in rewiring the brain and body towards connection and safety.

Changing our patterns of lateral violence needs holistic, embodied, and process-oriented approaches. The creative processes we use in Champions of Change are medicine for our whole self and for our relationships. They are foundational to deep listening, empathy, emotional literacy, self-awareness, and compassionate communication. Join us Friday, December 6th!

During Session Three we will share Syilx concepts and stories illustrating traditional values such as kindness, respect, and patience. Deep empathetic listening and strength-based communication are some of the teachings that will support us to enhance existing relationships and navigate challenging ones. Coaching processes are used to provide peer support for taking bold steps into leadership.

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.

Testimonials

I liked learning to listen for celebration, and hearing the desires in complaints – it was so awesome to know about. I liked learning about how much silent processing is going on, and how it continues after.
