2020 Vision into Indigenous ReconciliAction
About this Event
2019 left with some big events taking place for Indigenous people. This is a time to review these events and to plan ahead looking into 2020. How are we going to work together and what are the priorities.
This discussion will be facilitated in three parts. The first will be an opening and review of 2019 with participation from the group. After the review we will go into smaller groups and work on 2020 visioning and report back to the group as a whole.
Once the group comes back together we will prioritize the top 5 goals then come up with tangible actions to work together and as individuals.

MAPS and PATH Training – February 2020
Co-facilitating MAPS and PATH as exemplary forms of person centred planning for individuals, friends and family, teams and organizations
Facilitated by Aaron Johannes and Eilidh Nicholson
What is MAP or PATH planning?
PATH is a process in which a facilitator and a graphic facilitator work with a focal person (or organization or team) and their supporters to create a vision of the best possible future, out of which comes a plan that is always “positive” and “possible,” understood by all and no longer mysterious or scary. By the end of the PATH event the focal person or group has communicated where they want to go, what and who they need to support their journey, and how this part of their lives will be part of a bigger future. Those who care about them often say they feel clear, inspired and hopeful afterwards, and are excited to take on action oriented roles. A PATH is a great tool to bring a network together and the “new” PATH processes focus on the development of support networks more than ever!
Eilidh and Aaron, together and with other partners, have been doing Paths for individuals, organizations and teams for more than 20 years collectively and this responsive process continues to surprise and delight them as they watch individuals and tea
What a PATH is:
- powerful and empowering
- practical and dream-based
- communal and individualized
- a great way for teams who think they hate “planning” come to life and families get excited about the future. to bring a support network together
- a great way to get on the same page
What PATH is not:
- a cookie cutter approach
- a way to force someone to be part of your plan for them
Who are PATHFINDERS?
- individuals who are at a time in their lives when a creative, inspired approach feels right
- facilitators looking for a person centred method of planning they can use in a variety of situations
- families who want to work together
- friends who want to make a difference
- committed employers
- agency leaders wanting to know what’s optimal so they can do their best work
Over three days together, in a small group, we will…
- see a PATH being facilitated by experienced facilitators with opportunities for questions
- learn the steps of a PATH
- have fun with drawing, even if we think we can’t draw
- facilitate a PATH for someone
- graphically facilitate a PATH for someone
- have a PATH done for ourselves
- learn to honor this process as participatory leaders
- have fun, get energized and think new thoughts
- learn about other person centred planning methods
- get a really cool certificate
- share our strengths
