Prairie Spirit Connections Inc.

Self-Care for Women

The primary focus for Self-Care is to assist women to feel proud of themselves, create connections with other women, learn about and access available services in the community, and encourage each other to embrace their life with confidence.  Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. will assist women by offering programs and services to guide each woman in reconnecting with their cultural and traditional lifestyle, work on barriers through discussion, as well as do activities that are shaped and dedicated to the women who participate in self-care.  Self-Care helps women support and maintain a holistic lifestyle through various activities and knowledge based information.  Self-Care incorporates the opportunity to participate in cultural teachings, ceremonies, and classroom and group activities, as well as giving women the opportunity to speak with Elders and participate in individual counselling.  Each person is treated with kindness, caring, and  we honor the integrity of all.  We use a strength-based approach, building on their inherent positive strengths in helping each woman.  

The program objectives include the intervention model which is based on the Seven Sacred Teachings, the Medicine Wheel, and Tipi Teachings.  This gives the women the opportunity to express their creativity and embrace their individuality.  

The program will consist of:

  • One afternoon of drop-in classroom activities a week,
  • Opportunity to be creative,
  • Develop a variety of skills,
  • Share conversation with other women,
  • Nurture your whole well-being,
  • Work with a holistic approach,
  • Develop and embrace self-esteem and confidence.
