e4c November Updates

e4c Alberta is happy to welcome the Wellness Network “Peer Navigators” to the head offices at Alex Taylor School building. Wellness Network Peer Navigators are individuals with “lived experience” or family members of those with “lived experience.” They are available to support you on your personal journey of wellness by helping you navigate available resources.

Wellness Workshops are a great way to explore the aspects of our lives which affect our overall well-being. e4c is working in the community to develop workshops and support facilitators to bring community members opportunities to focus on individual aspects of wellness in fun and engaging ways. Examples include: Writing for Recovery with Leif Gregersen, Financial Empowerment with Jo Neville, and Beading for Spirit with Donna Robillard to name a few. Inquiries and information can be sought through our McCauley Office (780) 424-2870 or email: thashimoto@e4calberta.org.

e4c is the proud host/supporter for the School for Indigenous Teachings. Our Fall/Winter Semester opening day ceremony happened on October 22 at Alex Taylor School. The program offers courses/classes delivered by knowledge keepers and cultural leaders and practitioners over the course of the next 8 weeks until mid-December. For information on classes and registration, contact thashimoto@e4calberta.org.

Listings of our programs can be found on page 15 in the e4c box, as well as on the Boyle McCauley News website: bmcnews.org.

Taro is the e4c Community Development Officer.
