Healing Drop-in Sing-along
More information coming soon.
A lively sit down circle of participants joining in a wide range of popular songs lyric sheets and hand instruments will be provided. Participants are encouraged to contribute their “favourites”, be it songs, poetry or sometimes breaking into toe tapping frenzy and inspired dance-able movement. We will meet for 90 minute sessions with some optional vocal and stretching exercises. Refreshment breaks provided.
Kinect: Move Better. Feel Better. Think Better.
Kinect is a project that builds community and mental resiliency by moving together. Build up your mental health toolkit while engaging in fun, creative movement. Discover your inner strength though purposeful activity that is parted with a field discovery topic for each of the eight weeks.
For the Aboriginal Learner
For the ABORIGINAL LEARNER, the URBAN introduction to the “RIGHTS OF PASSAGE”, EACH child has learning level and should be RESPECTED and HONORED.
Traditionally this ceremony begins when the child is born, progresses at the age of four, and continues throughout their lives.
Remember I am not duplicating traditional HOME NATION ceremonies. I am introducing these “RIGHTS OF PASSAGE” to the URBAN ABORIGINAL community who choose to participate in the cultural appreciation celebration at West Coast Family Night.
Cultural Agenda at the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre:
Tuesday is Pow Wow Night, you can practice competition pow wow dancing from 6 pm – 10 pm.
Wednesday is West Coast Family Night where you can find information on the Long House Protocol and experience the drums and performances of individual Nation’s songs and dance, from 6 pm – 10 pm.
Wednesday night also brings you the experience of the Metis People from 6 pm – 8 pm.
My request for Aboriginal People who have accomplished a learned level to come into the community on these evenings to show the children they can accomplish any level of learning they wish to pursue.
