Community Connections in Shuswap

Charles Holmes presenting workshop on March 23, 2015

We can now confirm that Charles Holmes will be returning to the Shuswap on March 23, 2015 to facilitate a one-day seminar/workshop intended to “refresh and recharge” the alumni from last year’s symposium and community members more recently attracted by the idea of building community through small group conversations. Participants will be assisted in recognizing what gifts they have and are willing to commit to the implementation and extension of the community conversation process of inclusion and change.

Shuswap Settlement is working along with other  local agents for social change including: Plan:BE Society (proponent of the Triple Bottom Line), Together Shuswap (proponent for inclusion of First Nations and collaborative governance), along with proponents for food security, environmental protection, trail development and maintenance, community social planning and others to weave individual initiatives into a coherent larger vision for the community, including local municipal government. Such an outcome can only succeed if there is sincere respect for each other amongst all participants. Funding for the March event is funded, in part, by EmbraceBC (The Thompson Okanagan Respect Network) and the kind generosity of Charles Holmes.
