First Care Facilitation training underway in Moncton

The Thunderbird Partnership Foundation’s inaugural Care Facilitation – A Continuum of Care using Culture as Foundation training is off to a great start in Moncton today! Team members Mary Deleary, Nora Bressette, Dawn-Estelle Miskokomon and Sherry Huff are in the Atlantic region today to facilitate the 2 day training. There are 55+ people from across the region registered, thanks to the good work of Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nation Chiefs Secretariat.

This morning, we explored our connection to Creation, how each breath we take is a reminder of that connection – (connecting to each other, the earth, the sun, moon, galaxies and universe.) We also reflected what emotional, mental, physical and spiritual wellness looks like. The morning also was spent discussing different case studies and how communities/regions can facilitate care, using culture as the foundation.

Check back for more updates. We are also tweeting from the event. Check us out on Twitter using the hashtag: #seethebeing.
