The Circles will be facilitated either by Natasha Young, Aboriginal Student Advisor or by our community Elders and Helpers.
There are only a few guidelines for a Sharing Circle:
- only one person speaks at a time,
- speak with honesty,
- listen with respect, and
- what is said in the circle remains between those who took part.
The Aboriginal Resource Centre offers a women's circle for University of Guelph students who self-identify as First Nations (status or non-status), Metis or Inuit. The circle will be facilitated by Natasha Young, Aboriginal Student Advisor.
The Circle is a place for students to gather in a confidential setting to support each other and grow in a culturally respectful and good way focusing on the four aspects of self of the Medicine Wheel: mind, body, spirit and heart. There is no fee to attend and meeting time will be determined semesterly.
If you are interested in attending the women's circle, or would like to know more about it, please contact Natasha at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ext 52189.
