We also arrange a consultation with the Elder who then also has a a whole session to provide any suggestions to improve our presentation.
Who created Envisioning A Compassionate Culture Tools & Skills?

Why was Envisioning A Compassionate Culture Tools & Skills created?
Early in Pimohse’s healing journey, she had committed herself to supporting children, youth, adults and seniors in her community living in the similar environments that she had survived. It gave her great healing and comfort knowing that none of the people that she was one person that they never had to worry about hurting or harming them.
Today she is dedicated to sharing her professional support experiences and the knowledge that she had gained with her community to honour her experiences but also all the relationship of those that she had supported, but also the many Indigenous children and families who have been affected by these systems; but also, to support communities and agencies that are diligently striving to bring all of our children home.
Why was Walking Bear Woman Counselling & Consulting Services created?
Walking Bear Woman Counselling & Consulting Service was created to to safe-guard our knowledge and experiences that we share through our creations, designs & services, but also to ensure that everything envisioned and created remain authentically told and completely Indigenous-owned.
It is important that all services provided within WBW’s: Compassionate Culture Tools & Skills Series remain shared, told, and taught from an Indigenous perspective by those who have experienced and survived the system. They recognize that are still in healing; yet still courageously choose compassion for themselves and others.
WBW Counselling & Consulting Services, and all services that we deliver & design are created to strengthen and support Indigenous Mental Health & Wellness. In addition we were also created to wrap-around communities and agencies to strengthen intergenerational healing wellness as they strive to bring our children home.
