When someone dies, there is often a gravesite, a place to gather and remember; when someone vanishes, there is a void.

(Lori Whiteman)

 

The original idea for the Place of Reflection was born from the issue of murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls, but as the project grew and developed, it became clear that this was a place of potential reconciliation and hope for anyone who has experienced loss and grieving and would benefit from a place where they can draw strength and healing from the stone circle. The circle honours people from all directions. As a living sculpture, visitors may bring stones that represent their lost loved one. The circle is open to anyone, from any culture, religion, gender, or background. Ceremonies and offerings have been held for the Place of Reflection since 2009, and continue to be held each year. This is a special and sacred place.

The place is open to everybody.
