  • Experienced teachings of feasting the Spirit dishes and its meaning in practice.
  • Understanding the 8 Grandmother teachings and how that will help in spiritually informed trauma care.



During the Covid-19 pandemic, many institutions decided to make a transition to remote on-line learning. The Centre for Indigegogy resisted this move because we felt that Indigegogy had to be experienced in person and in relationship. However, new experiences and exposure with real-time remote teaching and learning has caused us to reconsider the value of real-time remote teaching and learning while holding space to enact the principles of Indigegogy.

Our decision to move forward became an opportunity for us to re-envision what it means to offer Indigenous Centre Wholistic Professional Development through ‘real-time’ remote learning. We had to consider:

  • How do we maintain Circle Protocols?
  • How do we continue to engage in Ceremony?
  • How do we hold the principles of Indigegogy (teaching the ways of the people IN the ways of the people)?

There is never a replacement for being with people in person but during this time of social distancing, we believe that we continue to offer quality programming that honours Indigegogy.

We look forward to being in ‘real-time’ remote teaching and learning Circles with you.
