KAIROS Blanket


Friday, January 28, 2022


05:30 pm - 08:30 pm

In the spirit of fostering relationships of peace, respect, and friendship here in Turtle Island, Northern Edge Algonquin offer this unique virtual event to step out of chronos (quantity) time and into kairos (quality) time. The Kairos Blanket exercise was created in response to the Royal Commission on Indigenous Peoples.  Experiencing history that was not taught in schools can open our eyes to the past and provide a key to having more courageous conversations about our shared future. Learn more about The KAIROS Blanket Exercise, or watch this short video describing this transformational activity that brings together Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the spirit of truth and reconciliation. The blanket exercise has been adapted as a virtual offering by Dr. Dawn Lavell-Harvard and First People's House of Learning. Together with Way of the Circle members Aleyah-Erin Lennon and Jan Beaver, Dr. Dawn Lavell-Harvard will facilitate an engaging and educational story-sharing as well as a circle debrief. Through an immersive walk through the past, tracing the impact of leadership decisions to the present, participants will gain a more complete view of what has shaped our understanding of home. Join this special ZOOM evening with Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to learn about Canada’s history from a more inclusive lens. Learn more and RSVP at
