  • Ki8etan 2, Session 1 - November 22 to 25: Together we reach out to meet ourselves, through the millennial teachings of the Anicinape people. A two-year transformation path, including four four-day meetings, every six months. A journey that is both simple, powerful and profound, guided by Elders T8aminik (Dominique) Rankin and Marie-Josée Tardif, where the group will act as a crucible of evolution, from one step to the next, in trust, complicity and mutual support.

    • N.B: This group is complete, but do not hesitate to signal your interest, because a new cohort Ki8etan 2 could be organized soon. It should also be noted that a Ki8etan 1 Course will begin in June 2020; places are still available on this side.

  • MATATO DE FABRICATION DU TAMBOUR: March 7-8-9, 2020: In Indigenous philosophy, the sacred drum is much more than just a musical instrument. It is the heartbeat of the child, the heartbeat of mother earth. That's why it's important to go through some stages before becoming a drum carrier. Grandfather T8aminik offers every year a teaching on the relationship to the sacred drum, as it was taught to him by the elders of his tradition. Each participant will make his/her own drum and celebrate this new birth with the Matato ritual (sweat lodge).
