Celebrating 8 Years of Sacred Changemaking

Sunday October 3rd | PowHERhouse 8 Year Celebration

PowHERhouse was born in 2013. We are a house of Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders for global impact, and media is the beat of our drum.

Ceremonies large and small have the power to focus attention in a way of living AWAKE in the world.” ~ Robin Wall Kimmerer

Throughout this journey, I’ve endeavoured to walk this path personally, embodying the process we ‘preach’ for myself day-by-day, step-by-step. Who we are becoming has always been far more important to me than what we are doing. Perhaps that’s why over the years I’ve received the question more than once, “What does PowHERhouse do?”

PowHERhouse activates and amplifies the sacred work of changemakers. We have built a model for transformative changemaking that catalyzes co-created change industry-to-industry, sector-by-sector, in community for community. But so much more than that, I’m so proud of who we have become in the process and where we’re ready to walk in the next eight years.   


Wednesdays | GATHER FOR HER Interactive Conversations of Whole Leadership

Monthly | New Moon PowHERcircle  Monthly Intention Setting

To shift society, we must shift the narrative for HER.

Individual effort is no longer an option. Creating sustainable, transformative impact requires deliberate weaving and better utilization of advertising dollars.

PowHERhouse provides simple, tangible, and meaningful ways for our partners to model what they SAY is important to them as they proactively demonstrate their values and walk their talk. We have a portfolio of reconciliation-in-action impact media opportunities to match various budget sizes and scopes, identified priorities, and resulting impact.

Collective Listening and Collaborative Decision Making

Our FireCircle model and methodology is part of our change-making model for organizations, leaders and artists of impact. This model is a practice of de-colonized leadership, listening, and seven generational solution finding.

Each Spring we offer a 3 day FireCircle experience for cross-sector leaders and social impacters around the world as we collectively listen, discuss and reimagine solutions to today's seemingly insurmountable problems.

In addition, we offer a 1 day FireCircle experience to assist global, national and community organizations and teams discover the answers they need to the collective questions they have for the progressive decisions they are ready to make.


Are you on The LEader Path?

We offer three paths of practice for individuals and teams who are ready to de-colonize leadership and re-imagine impact with us.

Our community of practice is designed to meet individual leaders where they are at in real-time experiential processes following our four part change-making model guided by the seven grandfather teachings. We draw on collective faith, grounded in our indigenous wisdom, for the leaders of today and the change-agents of tomorrow. 

First Steps

A ready-for-impact three module process for women leaders who crave clarity, a deeper level of commitment, and a steady plan for action to move forward.

The Leader Path

A responsive community of practice that follows a four point monthly activation and accountability rhythm for leaders to be supported as they move their impact-project, or approach forward for progressive change.


A government-approved national visibility training program for senior leaders. *government approved funding available.
