How could we further grow our capacity for community healing and transformation? 


Every day in our region and in many other regions and communities we are called upon to heal our lands, our families, our relationships, and to bring that healing to our work.

We are called to have the hard conversations of reconciliation.

It’s big work and needs to be done well. 

The Circle Way provides a foundation, a tool for collaboration and conversation. It is a way to tap our greatest strengths, individually and together. It moves us forward by bringing us back to the centre of what we already know.

Can you feel it? It is our time for great work.

You are invited into three nights and four days of deeply moving, professionally and personally enrichments for your heart and skills. 

This learning experience in The Circle Way is designed for reflection, learning, discussion and engagement that supports your personal and professional goals and holds the potential of contributing to larger scale transformation in the places that you work and live.

Who this is for

This training is for all involved in deliberate dialogue to further their work and to build communities: tribal leaders, council members, community organizers, government liaisons, educators, healthcare coordinators, and all others committed to community healing and transformation in the Tofino region - in unceded ƛaʔuukwiiʔatḥ territories - as well as other regions and communities.

Our world and communities increasingly need people like you to host meaningful and challenging dialogues about community, resources, reconciliation and transformative ways of doing business and living together.
