About the event
As Indigenous peoples, we have undergone much historical, ancestral, and personal trauma. At times it can be difficult to process these traumas or soul wounds, but one way to cope and help make sense of these events is through art, writing, and words. Learning how to render your emotions on the page is a form of “heartspeak.” Heartspeak can be one of the most helpful skills because it is a means of processing joys, hurts, or anything comes in between.
This workshop will offer writing prompts to help you tap into parts of your journey that need reexamination, compassion, and kindness. You will also learn writing prompts and techniques that you can take to implement in your own talking/healing circles, workshops, or client sessions.
We will also cover facilitation techniques and what it means to hold space for those who need to find light and a sense of belonging and acceptance in ourselves and communities in hopes of coming out with a better understanding of the human condition in regards to loving others and ourselves.
