When working to advance reconciliation, we take a decolonial approach to setting the foundation of this work together, engaging our minds, bodies, emotions and relationships.

Karen Snowshoe, KC leads this two-hour experiential session to teach you how to recognize how trauma shows up interpersonally, and how to apply key principles so you can respond in ways that actively resist re-traumatization.
