Spirit of Peace Program

The program provides counselling, advocacy, referrals, cultural and spiritual healing practices which allow examination of the reasons behind violence in the family and against Indigenous women. The program uses a sharing circle format for interactions and also employs the Medicine Wheel as a tool of understanding. There is also an opportunity to attend other Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre activities such as ceremonies, sweat lodges and medicine picking.

The Spirit of Peace Program provides open and closed groups that are specific to Indigenous women, as well as men and children. The open groups are available to anyone to attend, while the closed groups require pre-registration and acceptance.
