The COVID 19 pandemic is both a time of significant stress and an opportunity for growth, a re-examining of our ways as a human family. In response, BearPawTipi.ca can provide a virtual Sharing Circle to organizations and employee groups who want to come together for support.

Each Circle is 1 – 1.5 hours long and takes place on Zoom or other online platforms. Participants can share or listen as they wish. Send an email to contact@bearpawtipi.ca to request a consultation.
