Eric Flett, Indigenous Talking Circle Facilitator
Contact info: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Member of the Ebb and Flow First Nation. I am the Indigenous Talking Circle Facilitator here at MDAM and I develop and facilitate an Indigenous Awareness Training Course. I also facilitate a youth drum group, teaching traditional songs and performing at various community events.
I am involved in the delivery of the seven teachings, medicine wheel teachings, sharing circles, pipe ceremonies, and sweat lodge. I develop and prepare Indigenous arts, crafts and activities for youth and try to live my life according to the seven sacred teachings.
I believe in developing trust and respect while building strong relationships in the community. As for me, MDAM provides a doorway for community members with mental health issues to access support. MDAM provides me with a gateway to access more community members that needs support.
You can join Eric in the online Men's Group on Monday, Family and Friends group on Tuesday and the Indigenous Talking Circle on Wednesday.
