Thank you for hearing the call of the Community Healing Initiative (CHI) and a very warm welcome to you.
In our About page, you will discover, or perhaps already have, something about what CHI is and who is here in this community healing initiative so far.
We are emergent, changing with each soul who connects, with each new day, and with the powers in nature’s cycles and grids. While our collective character is clear and getting clearer, we are still emerging, and so our language and agreements are an unfolding in progress.
Starting from the very seeds of the grass before the roots begin is what we are and even where we are. At some point, and some point very soon it feels, CHI will begin to sprout very noticeably.
For now, we have a few ways that the small number of us involved are able to welcome you in.
Direct your interest and questions to Patti Lindgren, firstname.lastname@example.org 306-229-1978
Portals for Joining In
Current schedules, locations, terms & details for non-foundational learning and community events can be found in the Village of Saskatoon Facebook group, and this website under Events.
Direct greetings and welcomes – for people, independent co-creators and other groups who wish to have a direct conversation to explore CHI and potential for relationship who do not see another entry portal through existing events.
