IndigenEYEZ: Leadership Essentials

With Kim Haxton

July 12 - 16, 2020

This program will either be moved to a virtual gathering, be rescheduled to another date in 2021, or cancelled. 

We are currently working out all the details. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you so much for your patience, support, and understanding.

Sign-up to be notified when we have more information confirmed. You may also find details on Hollyhock’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic here.

Humanity is experiencing an unprecedented era. Collectively we sit on the verge of creation and destruction. Challenges to planetary well-being have never been more evident and creating opportunities for positive, actionable change have never been more vital. Indigenous knowledge is critical to transforming our culture from a consumer / material / human-centred identity to one that is governed by natural laws of respect, responsibility, and reciprocity with the Earth.

IndigenEYEZ is medicine for relationships. Bring forth the wisdom of our ancestors into today’s modern world. Discover tools for fostering healthier relations with others. Through cultural stories and teachings, we share skills for healthier relations with self, others, nature, and culture. Our program draws on the land and the wisdom of our Ancestors to deepen senses and intuition. Feet on the ground, we offer tools that can be used in staff meetings, planning sessions, HR, community engagement—anywhere people gather.

IndigenEYEZ shares proven social innovations to build the safety and trust needed for our relationships to flourish and grow. As Indigenous people, our capacity for relationships is in recovery. Discover how strength-based communication and creativity build buy-in. Learn skills to engage, inspire, and mobilize community programs using proven social innovation methodologies from PYE Global and adapted for First Nations. Learn when to teach and when to get out of the way. Become a leader who can mobilize people behind a shared vision. Young and emerging leaders will lay the foundation for a brighter future by bringing these skills back home to support Truth and Reconciliation.

A team of facilitators and mentors will take you through an empowering and deeply engaging journey.  The 4 threads of leadership – connecting to self, others, land and culture – are woven throughout the 5 days using a variety of arts and land based processes.

This program is open to Indigenous and non-Indigenous people of all ages looking to deepen their work in a time of high need.

One of the best workshops I’ve ever been involved in. This should / I hope will be offered to every human being on this planet. – Laura, 2017

Kim Haxton will also be co-presenting A Training in Lateral Liberation on June 12-17.
Can’t make it to Cortes Island? IndigenEYEZ will be presenting Truth & ReconciliACTION on May 25 and Champions of Change on Oct 22 in Vancouver.
