MJ Levesque - Learning to Live Fearlessly
In January 2006, I embarked on a 10,000 km bicycle journey in which my life partner and I travelled from Paris (France) to Almaty (Kazakhstan). I started cold turkey; out of shape and burned out. This is my story of overcoming fear, trusting my intuition, and making conscious choices.
Zongwe Binesikwe - Voice as Medicine
I am Zongwe Binesikwe, Sounding Thunderbird Woman, from the Bear Clan. I’m a Two-Spirit Anishinaabe storyteller from Thunder Bay, Ontario. I help create social change, healing and understanding through storytelling. I use my voice as medicine to heal complex PTSD through podcasting, creative non-fiction, solution focused journalism and art as ceremony.
Lia Bandola - Resilience Through Love
I heard through my life that I was so “strong” and “resilient”. Until recently, I didn’t see myself that way or understand that I managed my traumas well. Learn about what sparked the shift in my self-concept from “broken” and “weak” to one of joy, peace and love.
Chinyere Eni - The year I lost 11 neighbours
I will share my story about the year I lost 11 neighbours and a leg while fighting childhood cancer and the strategies for navigating physical and mental trauma I’ve learned along the road to recovery. I will discuss what I observed can impact our very survival and ability to cope both a child and parent perspective along with in the moment strategies for overcoming obstacles that can be applied when our journeys get tough.
Deborah Fletcher - Finding your HEY!
My story is about living with intention and learning to embrace the 'W' word. It is a simple story of what led me to realize I can choose my attitude. I had a great role model - my dad's resilient recovery from a stroke at age 46. I apply it to my own life in many ways - including my journey with my daughter who is severely disabled.
