Workshop Description:

Part one, Identity, takes us first though the exploration of one's personal and Indigenous identity as a fundamental base for the participant to build upon. We gradually move into awareness, a term which encompasses many facets such as cultural awareness, community awareness, generational trauma, and reconciliation. The third component is Vision. Having a vision for your life means that the participant has explored who they are, understands that they are not a product of their current circumstance and they feel they are ready to set goals that will allow them to achieve the best life possible. The last component is Self-efficacy; this piece provides the encouragement, knowledge and motivation for participants to see their goals achieved. It draws out their inner-strengths to foster belief in themselves and their worth.

Awaken the Spirit, Train-the-Trainer is an intensive 3-day Facilitator Certification Workshop where techniques and strategies will be demonstrated, practiced and shared in a positive setting. Becoming trained as a facilitator is a beneficial and cost-effective method for communities & organizations to  offer their own workshops as often as needed, throughout the year and years to come.

I never would have set goals for myself if I didn’t take this workshop. Now I feel like I can accomplish anything.

I feel confident in myself knowing that I can do something for myself. And I am glad to know that there are people out there who do this for Aboriginal people.

I came in to take the workshop to facilitate in the future. I did not know I would be changing my own life along this journey! This workshop comes highly recommended in my books.
