The Spirit of Peace Program provides open and closed groups that are specific to Aboriginal women, as well as men and children. The open groups are open to anyone’s attendance while the closed group requires pre-registration and acceptance. The program provides counselling, advocacy, referrals, cultural and spiritual healing practices which allow examination of the reasons behind violence in the family and against Aboriginal women. The program uses a sharing circle format for interactions and also employs the Medicine Wheel as a tool of understanding. There are also other programs offered by the centre that are not operated separately but rather as part of the larger whole. For instance, there are ceremonies performed and there are sweat lodges and medicine picking opportunities that are open to the participants of the program, as part of the larger offerings of the centre.
