Working with eleven individuals to provide $6,600 in grants for learning The Circle Way.
Providing three new initiative grants totalling $7,200 to support a 9 month training for women’s empowerment and leadership, conscious parenting with an emphasis on preventing teen suicide, and decolonizing practices through workshops with Indigenous and non-Indigenous facilitators.
The Spanish translation of The Circle Way Pocket Guide (nearly complete!).
We completed a thoughtful process of interviews to expand and diversify The Circle Way Board, to welcome fresh ideas and practice, growing from six to twelve people (announcement coming soon).
The Circle Way learning events have been held in Europe, Australia, Canada, the United States, and online.
The Circle Way monthly newsletter continues to feature a monthly story of The Circle Way in practice with voices from around the world, as well as “The Circle Way Tips” to support the application and practice of The Circle Way.
Cultivating Conscious Parents was a recipient of a New Initiatives Grant this year. The program is designed to bring parents together in circle to deepen self awareness and provide a safe space for courageous and vulnerable conversations about helping children live original and creative lives.
The Circle Was was proud to support Michelle Lorna Nahanee (Squamish), the designer of a life-size board game and workshop called Sínulhkay and Ladders, with a New Initiatives Grant. She is a creative director, critical communications scholar, Indigenous change maker, and founder of decolonizingpractices.org:
