Programs & Services Overview

The scheduling of Enaahtig Healing Lodge and Learning Centre programs and services is based on calendar quarters which coincide with the natural rhythm of the four seasons. The scheduling and nature of activities within quarters will be similar for the most part, but will reflect some differences determined by the seasons and their traditional associations (see below). For example, during the summer, a special emphasis will be placed on programs for children and youth as reflected in a special one-week residential program for them, weekend retreats and increased youth activities (see below). Quarters will begin and end on the solstices and equinoxes.

Spring Quarter: During this quarter, there will be a emphasis on programming for infants and toddlers. Outdoor activities will include maple sugaring, crop planting, fasting, harvesting of medicines and appropriate recreational activities. The primary themes are the renewal of life and the mental aspect of our being.

Summer Quarter: During this quarter there will be an emphasis on programming for children and youth. Outdoor activities will include weeding the garden, some harvesting of crops and medicines, fasting and appropriate recreational activities. The primary themes are growth, maturation and the physical aspect of our being.

Fall Quarter: During this quarter there will be an emphasis on programming for young adults and parents. Outdoor activities will include harvesting of crops and medicines, fasting and appropriate recreational activities. The primary themes are care giving, personal reflection and introspection and the emotional aspect of our being.

Winter Quarter: During this quarter there will be an emphasis on programming for grandparents and Elders. Expanded emphasis on cultural and spiritual teachings. Outdoor activity will likely be restricted to winter recreation and the primary themes are wisdom, story telling and the spiritual aspect of our being.
