"Indigenous Voices" Full-day Retreat

Indigenous Voices event
9:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Shekinah Retreat Centre, Waldheim, SK

Deadline for registration has passed.

To start off the 2015-2016 Indigenous Voices program, you are invited to participate in a transformative cultural, experiential, and educational full-day event. Elders, Knowledge Keepers, and Indigenous Voices co-ordinators will guide you through a day of stories, teachings, time on the land, and preparing and cooking traditional meals as part of the learning journey.  

The chosen location is the perfect environment in which participants get away from the bustle and distractions of the city, and immerse themselves in a natural environment, allowing for mindful learning, personal reflection, a safe place for communal dialogue.

The gathering commences at 9:00 a.m. at the Shekinah Retreat Centre, near Walheim, Saskatchewan, in the river valley.  The day will close by 7:00 p.m. after a traditional meal prepared and shared with one another. 

Should you chose to use your own transportation, a map of the location is attached for your convenience.  The drive takes approximately 50 minutes. Additionally, transportation will also be provided for those who require it, but it is important to let the co-ordinators know early on, so that enough vehicles will be secured for the day.

Recognizing that unavoidable circumstances may suddenly occur, we kindly request that you give as much notice as possible if you are unable to attend, as this will affect our planning and expenses for transportation and food, as well as opening up a spot for someone on the waiting list.


If you have dietary concerns and/or require transportation, please contact marylou.mintram@usask.ca when you register so that proper accommodations can be made.
