The Weaving Wellness Centre and its volunteers are dedicated to mental health innovation and education. In addition, they endeavor to contribute and create positive change to the understanding of wellness and healing within individuals, communities, and national spaces.
Weaving Wellness recognizes the significance of stories. It is a medium that we develop to make sense of our identities, experiences, and lives by weaving together important events in time. Weaving Wellness think that story is essential to the processes of transformation, growth, and healing, and they urge their clients to consider the stories they want to tell about themselves and their life.
They recognize that health and wellness exist on mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Therefore, they centre their work on these four interconnected components of the self, family, and community and bring this perspective to their therapeutic methods and projects.
They believe each person possesses a sacred fire or spirit and unique qualities and abilities that we are destined to explore, develop, and share with the world around us. Weaving Wellness believes that every person’s existence has meaning and purpose and that part of their work as healers is to assist their clients in nurturing the sacredness of self.
Weaving Wellness places a high value on the relationships formed between their clients and their community of practitioners. Relationships are essential to their work, and they demonstrate respect and teamwork in everything they do. They believe that healing can occur in the setting of trusted and secure relationships, and they make a great effort to develop and honor the client-helper relationship.
Weaving Wellness is a social justice-focused centre that strives to be anti-racist, feminist, and queer-positive in everything they do. They take a systems approach to mental health and wellness, recognize the influence of that complex element, and inform their experiences and affect their well-being.
