About the Event
To look back is to remember, acknowledge and honor late relatives, your ancestors, your lineage and ancestral roots to provide you with a foundation to be able to be here in the present moment.
Are you ready to look back to truly cherish the present moment?
In this 3 hour interactive workshop, you will be guided to ground in to excavate, and reflect on your ancestral roots, who you are, your gifts, strengths, and your purpose by exploring four guiding questions to truly look back, be present, and look forward.
These four questions crossed Lee’s path in her early 20s, and has been guiding folks in communities to remember who they are to be able to be a catalyst for impactful change for future generations.
Oral story has been a powerful way of understanding and being in relation with one another among Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island since time immemorial and I will encourage you to weave in your stories. “The truth about stories is, that’s all we are”, as said beautifully by Thomas King, Indigenous author.
Lee lives life and facilitates with a decolonized lens as an Indigenous woman and encourages you to be open to look within yourself with curiosity, kindness and patience to better understand yourself and others to better solidify your foundation. Because what Lee knows to be true is that together we can restore humanity by doing inner heart work, reciprocal led decision making and challenging societal norms.
In this workshop, Lee invites you to create intentional space for yourself as she guides you through meditation, written reflection, and sharing in a virtual circle.
Just a heads up, Lee is all about having fun and doing deep shit, so be prepared to visit some shadows within yourself, and of course laughter!
Lee Mae Spence (she/her/hers) is a proud Metis Muskego Ininew Iskwew (swampy cree woman) from Dene, Ininiwak + Inuit Territory in northern Manitoba, Canada where she was born and raised until furthering education and sport opportunities and eventually planting roots in Anishinaabe, Ininiwak, Dakota, Oji-Cree Territory and the homelands of the Metis Nation in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
