At the first gathering of the Residential School Healing Gathering, there were people there that were mostly there because they had gone to a residential school. But, since then I’ve been swinging other people. I believe anybody can benefit from the swing whether it be just for relaxation purposes, possibly healing from past pain and hurt - anybody that’s been through trauma, for example, sexual abuse. I’ve been invited to swing people at the Sexual Abuse Healing Conference in Edmonton in February. So I believe anyone can heal from it, from young babies to very senior elders.
