Mdewgaan Lodge (Medicine Lodge)

Mdewgaan Lodge (mi-day-gaan) is an urban residential Healing Lodge for Indigenous women with their young children and pregnant women who are interested in moving forward on their wellness journeys. The Lodge provides a healing space for women and families who have experienced the impacts of intergenerational and complex trauma, including addictions and mental health concerns. The program supports keeping families together through culturally connected pre and post natal support, parenting and coping skills development for lifelong wellness.

Mdewgaan Lodge is guided by the sacred knowledge that culture is healing. Our approach to wellness is centred in culture, focused on balance across all quadrants of the medicine wheel and grounded in relationship between self with children, family, community, land and environment.
