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.

practices are still taking place?

Pathways to Reconciliation

Proudly situated on Treaty 7 Territory in Southern Alberta, the traditional territories of the Blackfoot: home to the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, and the  Stoney Nakoda: Bearspaw, Chiniki, and Wesley First Nations. We recognize that Calgary is situated on land adjacent to where the Bow River meets the Elbow River and that the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is "Mohkinstsis" which we now call the City of Calgary. The City of Calgary is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
