Circles of Reconciliation – Seeds Vision Team has been discussing the possibility of forming some Circles of Reconciliation in our community. To learn more about what this is please visit the following link Circles of Reconciliation
There is an information/training event at Ginew Wellness Centre (Roseau River First Nation) Jan 30 from 9:00 to 3:30; that day will be broken into a general overview section from 9:00 to 10:30 and then a training component from 10:30 to 3:30. If you stay for the day, the intention would be for those people to co-facilitate a circle at some point. If that day does not work and you are interested in serving as a facilitator, there is a training event in the city February 7 (6-9) and 8 (10-2:30).
Circles of Reconciliation is founded upon a full, equal partnership. Each circle is comprised of 10 adults (5 Indigenous and 5 non-Indigenous), 2 facilitators (1 Indigenous and 1 non-Indigenous) and meets for 10 sessions on themes that have been written by Indigenous scholars.
Our dream would be to host a Circle that would bring together people from Seeds/the Town of Altona and people from Roseau either this spring or next fall/spring. Who knows, this may lead to multiple Circles! If you have any interest in attending the information or the information/training, contact Jonathan Toews by email firstname.lastname@example.org or cell 204-319-0172.
