Education for transformation

An intentional, inclusive community located at the margins in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, welcoming people of all faiths and circumstances.

Our work together includes:

  • Awareness and immersion experiences, workshops, courses, seminars, sharing of resources and publications
  • Using the ‘on the ground’ context to create a space for shared learning, which draws from the strengths, insight and wisdom of all participants
  • Facilitating transformation by striving for a deeper understanding and an integrated response

One cannot expect positive results from an educational or political action program, which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people. Such a program constitutes cultural invasion, good intentions notwithstanding.” – Paulo Freire in Pedagogy of the Oppressed
