About The Event

Choose a ticket below. At checkout you will be asked to choose ONE of the following breakout sessions:

A1: The Anishinaabe Presented by Tony Davis.

The health of the Anishinaabe community will help determine how its children perceive life's challenges.  Family values inform a child's values during early childhood, and the community assists in the progression of the child's value system as the child grows.  During this progression, Anishinaabe children learn to value Creation and other Anishinaabe on a mental, physical, spiritual and emotional level.  The Anishinaabe community teaches its children through the community's behaviors, its cultural teachings, The Creation Story, Seven Grandfathers and numerous other cultural components, all of which are necessary for a good life.

A2: Incorporating Mindfulness Into Your Life Presented by Amy Dye Janssens, M.A.

During this session, participants will gain a better understanding of how mindfulness can serve them in their personal lives as well as in their workplace. The session will focus on growing a personal mindfulness practice and the importance of self-care to reduce chronic stress and promote more effective teaching and youth-focused practices. The session will also introduce mindfulness as a method to help children gain tools for self-regulation, focused attention, and kindness. Together we will spend time exploring some of these practices in order to be more fully present in our lives.

A3: Exploring Your Life's Journey Through Experiential Activities and Creative Story Telling

Presented by Karen Marietti, M.A., LPC

This workshop explores the power of self-discovery and community-building through the sharing of personal stories.  By sharing personal stories, we gain a better understanding of our strengths and weaknesses and our commonalities, allowing us to cultivate the creative power of connectivity.   Together we will learn how to explore our past, and what character traits help build healthy communities.  These skills will enable us to forge a new story for ourselves and others and to create positive change in our community.

A4: RELAX: Alternatives to Anger Presented by Gretchen Stelter, M.A.Ed.

RELAX: Alternatives to Anger, helps teens, adults, parents and caregivers to understand and manage anger and stress. Learn the communication and problem-solving skills needed for healthy relationships.
