First Nations Authentic Leadership for Women

Discover how to live your truth & be your Warrior Heart in the world

The First Nations Authentic Leadership for Women workshop is designed to empower both First Nations identified women and non-First Nations women by harnessing the strengths and wisdom of First Nations culture to enhance their leadership.

Through collective storytelling, reflection and shared vulnerability, this two day workshop will explore how you live your truth and stand in your power and resilience. It will explore how you nurture and build deeper connections to self, culture, and community.

Creating and taking space to nurture and invest in ourselves as human ‘beings’ is vital to our sustainability and our capacity to empower, enable and serve others. This is a space to take time for you, to check in with yourself and really explore and reconnect with who you are and align this to your season, your Dreaming (purpose) and values.

Meet your facilitator

Shantelle Thompson OAM, a proud Barkindji and Ngyampaa woman

Founder & Aunty Shan
Kiilalaana Foundation

I am a woman being the change she wishes to see in the world, starting within my own inner world and circles and allowing this to be a ripple effect by my being before my doing. I am walking this journey one step at a time and sharing my journey out loud to inspire and empower others to be their Warrior Heart in the world. I am Dream Walking Dream weaving my life to plant seeds and create ripple effects that will last long after I have left a space or this lifetime.

Message from Shantelle:

All the challenges currently facing the world are tough. And when you are an individual that carries extra roles, experiences, intersections and all of the ‘ands’ within your human experience these challenges can become amplified within your daily experiences and world.

 

It is one thing to say ‘be yourself in the world’ and ‘be authentic’; but what does this mean, feel or look like? For some of us being ‘authentic’ has come with danger and sacrifices for a world not created to see us thrive or succeed.

 

This is why I created the Warrior Heart movement – Warrior Heart; Stand in your power, be your truth and follow your heart”.
