Cultivating Compassion 

Bringing awareness of the truth of our past in order to build bridges from the past to the present and subsequently our future.

A four module workshop to create awareness and understanding of Indigenous and Canadian history. Our goal is to cultivate a compassionate approach to being active in pathways to reconciliation and responsible decolonization as individuals, communities and businesses.
