The Medicine Circle underlines the need for balance and encompasses all aspects of life.

It is a reminder of the interconnectedness of creation and our roles and responsibilities to creation and to ourselves.

The Circle represents all of the ages and stages of life. It encompasses the past, present and future and provides the foundation of why the organization exists, to help Indigenous families achieve this balance within their own circles and live Mino-Bimaadiziwin (the Good Life).

The Seven Grandfather Teachings are the guiding principles upon which decision-making and actions are based.

Our organization follows these teachings in actionizing our vision and responsibilities. These principles can be applied broadly to many groups and we honour this Anishinaabe set of principles because they are inherently valuable and honour the Council of Three Fires and the geographical location of our centres being on traditional Ojibwe and Algonquin territory.
