CONSCIOUS CONNECTIONS

FOR THE FRONT-LINE

Conscious Connections Edmonton

Join us Wednesday May 19, 2021 virtually

7:00-8:15 p.m. online via zoom

An evening to bring together those working the front line, to talk, listen, share, and connect. As members working the

front-line and supporters of these members, we have a unique thread that links us all together and there is a powerful strength that happens when we come together and build relationships with one another. 

~ Are you a member of the front-line? Are you a family member or close friend of someone on the front-line?

~ Are you looking to connect with others?

~ Looking to share your story and feel heard and supported?

~ Feeling alone and like nobody understands what you are going through?

THEN THIS EVENING IS FOR YOU

GUEST SPEAKER: Matt Wood

Matthew was Born in 1980 in Philadelphia during one of the worst ice storms that year!! Raised in England, being the only American citizen of the family, Matt immediately moved back to the U.S. after graduating the equivalent of high school.

After traveling and working through Florida, Colorado, California and Montana, Matt Fell into a volunteer Fire department in 1999 in Belgrade Montana. It was there the seed was set, and Matt’s career in the fire and EMS started. Since then Matt has worked as a Ski Patroller, Firefighter/ EMT Firefighter/ Paramedic and Field Training Officer. He is currently working as a Firefighter / Paramedic in Texas. Matt is the adopted father of 4-year-old twins Isla and Elliot, and Husband to Amber. He is also 3-time Ironman Triathlete.

 

Matt is a passionate advocate of self-development and has studied self-development for about 28 years. Within the last few years Matt and his family have come to terms with and are in the process of dealing with post-traumatic stress and the impact of 20 years in the field of fire and EMS. Matt and Amber set aside 2 days every year to re-connect individually and together with life goals and plans for the future through Oola. Both are proponents of the quote “by failing to plan, you are planning to fail” -Benjamin Franklin
