The cycle of addiction includes a downward spiral of hopelessness and despair. This begins by having an overall desire of happiness, joy and freedom.
The Union Gospel Mission (UGM) and the Indigenous Wellness Training Society will be co-hosting an Indigenous Teaching Circle about Indigenous Sustainability.
Steven Covey says:
There are three central values in life: the experiential (that which happens to us), the creative (that which we bring into existence), and the attitudinal (our response to difficult circumstances). What matters most is how we respond to what we experience in life.
As this year winds down and we begin to get ready for another year we just wanted to take a moment and thank those individuals who have been very hospitable to us this year.
We are co-hosting another networking potluck. Our first one was a success where over 30 people attended and shared their knowledge about the services they provided.

The Indigenous Wellness Training Society is pleased to announce that their first annual general meeting will take place on Saturday November 25, 2017 at 12:00 noon and finishing at 2:00 pm.
Our mission statement is to train individuals who have issues with addictions. Similar to the concept that it takes an entire village to raise a child, it also takes an entire community to train individuals about health and wellness.
Photography is more popular than ever before. The reason photography has become so popular is that it has become so simple. We have a few cameras and we are learning to use some very powerful photo editing software.
Steven Covey says that we are predominantly determined by our conditioning and our conditions. He says in our society, we have accepted 3 theories of deterministic explanations of the basic nature of man: genetic determinism (we are determined from our grandparents, we inherited it, we are Aboriginal and we got it from there), psychic determinism (parents did it to you, upbringing, childhood experience personal tendencies, character structure – emotional scripting, emotional punishment, rejection, comparisons) and environmental determinism (current situation, spouse, children, economy, national laws – someone or something in the environment).
A report was written in 1999 called the Healing Ways report. It was a snapshot and analysis of the First Nations population at that time who were living in the Vancouver Richmond Health Board area.
