This past weekend, Pahan Pte San Win and Wanbdi Wakita of Bear Paw tipi returned to the Ashram to offer an inspiring and heartfelt weekend of teachings.
Ashram residents, guests and local community members participated in workshops and satsangs focused on reconciliation, love and healing.
It was a time of listening, sharing and reflecting on questions such as: How do I live in balance? What does reconciliation mean? What is my personal action plan for reconciliation? What does it means to be an ally?
We closed the weekend with a sacred pipe ceremony in the tipi followed by a satsang honouring Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in the Temple.
Thank you to Pahan & Wanbdi for their wisdom and generosity and to all those who participated. Net proceeds from the weekend are going to support the Sundance of Women to be held in Manitoba in 2018, which is the second of four annual Sundances honouring the Spirits of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
