Last week I went to a conference hosted by LIVN, Life is Valued Network, in Banff. Here's some pics of that experience...
Don speaks about his life, his issues and how he made his way through difficult times. He uses aboriginal cultural tools to speak about lessons learned.
This one part of his presentation speaks to the seven steps of ages we go through starting at birth, and in particular being a youth. He talks about youth being affected by SAD (Sex, alcohol and drugs) Powerful influences that affect how we see ourselves and others.
One of the gifts of the presentation were his thoughts about what we need to work through on our journey towards healing. He talked about working on ourselves through PRAYER, SHARING, CRYING and LAUGHTER.
They stopped to look at me and slowly moved on their way. They looked so majestic. Very nice and always a pleasure to see our four legged brothers and sisters in my travels.
