West Central Women's Resource Centre
640 Ellice Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3G 0A7

It’s devastating to see the toll this year has had on women in our community:
Women have been laid off from their service-industry jobs and have nowhere to go.
Women in our city are walking around without shoes.
Women don’t have supplies to keep themselves clean and safe.
Women are struggling to access food for themselves and their children.
The need is overwhelming.

We staff the WCWRC Street Outreach Van – the only 7-day-a-week outreach services focused on women in Winnipeg. Every day we meet homeless women who are looking for safety and support, and just a little bit of connection and normalcy. By seeing many of the same women everyday, we can also check in on their wellbeing and connect them with additional services, such as housing supports and counselling.
Will you please help keep the van on the road?

Please donate today https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/14637

With your gift, you will ensure women have the support and dignity they deserve. Thank you!

The Assiniboine Valley Railway, Inc., 3001 Roblin Blvd.

The 1/8th scale railway just west of Assiniboine Park, is sad to report that the family of the AVR founder, the late Bill Taylor, has given notice that the AVR has 6 months to vacate the property.

We will likely have to put everything into storage temporarily. We will need a new home, or else will have to dissolve the AVR and sell off our assets.
All public access to the property must cease, so there will be no AVR Season this year.
If we are to continue, we will need at least several acres to rebuild on, with hydro & water, close enough to the city that we & the public have easy access. We cannot see rebuilding without public monetary support.

All of us at the AVR miss Bill since his passing in 2013, and have been honored to continue his dream hobby that has given pleasure to so many people. We want to thank the thousands of people - individuals, families and organizations, and the media - who have supported us and enjoyed riding on our Open House trains in the summer, on our Halloween & Christmas Weekend trains and sharing meals on the Dinner Train Weekends.

For more info about what the AVR has been (and, hopefully, could be again), check out our website: assiniboinevalleyrailway.org

Ełexiìtǫ ; Ehtsʼǫǫ̀ / Connected ; Apart From Each Other
By Casey Koyczan

April 30 - May 29 (by appointment, contact info@urbanshaman.org)

"Ełexiìtǫ ; Ehts'ǫǫ̀" is an interactive installation that communicates the journey of learning more about one's culture through distance education and research; utilizing and adapting to work with technology and communication tools as viable resources for learning language, tradition, stories, and spiritual beliefs.
Within my art I use every part of the materials harvested. During my early adulthood I've tried to follow the teachings of "Dene Laws”. I try to always return to these teachings as they have helped me to represent myself in a way that is common to Dene people.

A bilingual collection of renga poetry by two of Canada’s most celebrated poets in English and in French, each writing in his respective language in response to the other. Léveillé and E.D. Blodgett share an unprecedented dialogue that possesses both paradox and complete clarity of word.

In 1999, Jacques Brault won the Governor-General’s Award for Translation for Transfiguration (1998), a translation of Blodgett’s poetry.
Host Paul Morris is Professor of English and the current director of the master’s programme in Études canadiennes et interculturelles at the Université de Saint-Boniface.

ThetaHealing Manifesting & Abundance Workshop
Event by Divine Clarity and Kristel Kernaghan

In ThetaHealing®, the concept of manifesting is the Belief that it is possible to create something into the physical using the connection to the Creator of All That Is. Every statement, thought and action is reflected by what we are manifesting in our lives. If you constantly say that you are poor, you will be. It is of the utmost importance to stay on a positive mind set. But you must first decide what it is you want in your life.

This class will assist students in creating on a variety of ways in their life, as well as enable them to assist their clients in manifesting and abundance.

Prerequisite: Basic & Advanced DNA from a certified ThetaHealing™ teacher. Includes: Manifesting and Abundance Manual and Manifesting from the 7th Plane Meditation CD.
Investment: $500 plus GST (at start of class) or $550 plus GST (Installment plan). A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required at time of registration, the balance due at the start of the workshop. Students may retake workshop for $200 plus GST.

www.divineclarity.com Spiritual Centre & Metaphysical Shoppe offering large variety of services, workshops and products for body, mind & spirit.
