Program Reviews

“Autrement, j’ai aimé la division des ateliers en différents thèmes, les ’ journaling prompts’, les méditations, et l’empathie et l’écoute des intervenants. J’ai aussi trouvé que le print du double helix radio permet de bien imager les concepts que Grow Still essaie de transmettre et permet aux participants de bien se situer dans leur cheminement.”
~ Becoming Your Best Self participant, 2020

“Merci pour tout ce que vous offrez comme contenu, variété, documents, etc. J’adore la diversité des exercices et l’approche holistique du bien-être.”
~ Becoming Your Best Self participant, 2020

“J’ai adoré les ‘workshops’ et la diversité des activités, des sujets qui ont été touchés et la balance entre les activités seul et en groupe. Le ’wellness kit’ est super, et je vous remercie pour tout le temps que vous avez mis dans celui-ci!
Dans le dernier volet des ateliers, l’activité sur la résilience m’a tellement aidée! J’ai réalisé que j’avais plusieurs outils innés afin d’aller de l’avant avec ma vie, et de reconnaître que ma boîte à outils est plus garnie que je croyais a augmenté mon estime de moi plus rapidement que tout le travail que j’ai tenté de faire dans les dernières années. Les ‘journaling prompts’ ont été bénéfiques afin d’apprendre à me connaître, mes goûts, mes insécurités, mes patterns…
[…] Merci du fond du cœur pour ces derniers mois. Vous êtes une merveilleuse équipe, pleine de force, de lumière, de douceur et de confiance.”

Discussion Circles

Location:

Zoom & Park Lafontaine, Montreal

Dates:

July 10 onwards. See below for full schedule.

  • Do you want to learn how to discuss difficult topics such as inequality, illness, and conflict?
  • Do you want to connect with yourself and your community?

Grow Still created the Care2Share Discussion Circles as a way to encourage the community to  discuss difficult issues that impact society. Our purpose is two-fold: First, we want to work together to alleviate the pain and isolation that often accompany topics such as inequality, illness, and conflict. Second, we want to facilitate self-education, equip participants to engage in discussion with peers and family members, and to inspire action for change.  

All topics will fall under one of  3 themes:

Inequality: Topics include racism, ageism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia. 

Illness: Topics include substance abuse, mental health, chronic illnesses, and cognitive/learning/developmental disabilities.

Conflict: Topics include hypersexualization, toxic relationships, family conflict, and death & grief.

Program Reviews

“I started painting on a day that I carried a lot of sadness and anger. My battle with mental health has been a bumpy ride lately. […] This painting allowed me to express my emotions and find an outlet for my pain and anger. I am grateful for being able to express my emotions, in a free, non judgemental space.”

Program Reviews

“Grow is something that I will always remember as the catalyst for my self exploration and healing process. […] The main thing that Grow had done to make a difference in my life is that it helped me to realize that I can take my own life into my own hands — I can grow from past trauma and become the person that I am proud to be. I still have a long way to go but I am so grateful to have learned about my potential in my early 20s and I thank Grow for this.”
~ Life Guide participant, 2019

“This really came at a time when I needed it the most. I was feeling kind of lost and felt as if my situation was unraveling. I needed to feel more grounded and to regain control in order to move forward with my career and life. The guiding sessions helped me do that by giving me valuable knowledge and really guiding me through the various difficulties a young adult faces in day to day life.”
