Workshops

Understanding Smudging and the Four Medicines

Smudging is an essential part of many Indigenous ways of life. This workshop answers all the questions about the practice of smudging, the smudge bundle, and the medicines to do so. As you learn about each item in the bundle, traditional language and definitions will convey a rich understanding. Many agencies are providing areas for clientele to smudge and are not sure of best practices. Understanding Smudging and the Four Medicines is a foundational place to start. Staff will take away a working knowledge of an ancient practice.

This workshop is a one and a half hour certificate program including an interactive Q&A portion.

Medicine Hoop

The Medicine Hoop Workshop takes us on journey through the human experience in a cyclical fashion. We explore how language is a critical component in understanding our own relationship to all that is around us in the natural world and our spiritual connection to it. Our journey will reveal a deeper insight of humanity explained through ancient principles and teachings.

The Medicine Hoop Workshop is a two-hour certificate program which includes an interactive Q&A portion.

The Eternal Principles Workshop is an in-depth exploration of our responsibilities to one another, to the earth and to everything on it. Language pedagogy will lead you through the Indigenous way of being.
