Come join this webinar to deepen your understanding of grief faced by Indigenous peoples historically to the present, how Indigenous peoples cope, and holistic strategies to help those who are grieving and suffering loss.
Please join me in learning about "the work I have done to create an Indigenous bereavement group in KW, as well as work with other grief circles in the region. Then I will relate some traditional teachings about life and death on the medicine wheel, and how I was taught to honour myself in grief and to especially honour those loved ones who have passed. I will identify that Indigenous peoples carry different forms of grief and loss and how we can tend to those through our traditional ways, our ceremonies and every day living."
