Bio-Medical Study Group @ The Gathering Place
Apr 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Bio-Medical Study Group is a group of family and community members who find it inspiring, helpful, and personally rewarding to talk with each other about our own experiences and share new information all about optimal health, balance and well-being. We think about wellness in terms of food and nutrition, making sure sensory needs are met, figuring out mindful and conscious approaches, or looking at what recent research can tell us about medications, seizures, digestive issues and more.

Our conversation focuses on the whole person and how people may respond with more or less sensitivity to their environment, including diet and nutrition, brain coherence, sensory integration issues, the calmness or agitation of those around them, and more.

The group has been meeting monthly for over a year and is open and welcomes new participants! We meet at The Gathering Place (20-850 King St. W, Oshawa), the second Friday of each month at 10am.  Please RSVP your attendance to jklees@dafrs.com so that we can plan a successful morning.

Building a Context for Relationship @ The Gathering Place
Apr 25 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Building a Context for Relationship @ The Gathering Place | Oshawa | Ontario | Canada

This is a learning event for those who are serious about exploring and discovering the opportunities for welcome, engagement, and relationship that abound n our communities.

IF YOU ARE INVOLVED WITH PLANNING AND SUPPORTING A PERSON TO BE A FULLER MEMBER OF THEIR COMMUNITY AND NEED A PRACTICAL APPROACH THAT WORKS, THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU.

This day will include stories to stretch your imagination, a basic framework that you can begin to use today, some tips and ideas on support basics from a practitioner of 30 years, and some time for problem solving and brain storming for your own purposes.

“We cannot create relationship, but we can recognize, encourage, and design opportunities in which the miracle of relationship is more likely to occur.”

This workshop combines a good, principled framework with a practical, straight forward approach for bringing about the two elements that will make the most significant difference in peoples’ lives:  valued roles and relationship.

In this hands-on practical event we will plan, practice and polish setting up and supporting our own contexts that work. Starting with where you are at, we will find ways to make poor situations good, make good situations better, and shape a few situations to be the best. We will also explore good support strategies, developing natural supports, and have plenty of time to think about and work on your own examples and situations. The workshop is based upon the belief that when our communities are able to invite, welcome and appreciate the contributions of its most vulnerable members, we all benefit. Communities need support to discover these contributions. Supporters need a vision of possibility, a sound approach and effective strategies to take action.
