At BeCompassionateNL Inc., we seek to cherish, defend, listen to, learn from, love and support Indigenous Elders, Bundle and Knowledge Keepers, Wisdom Teachers and their strong allies.
We know that we, as individuals, family members, communities, nations and members of power blocs, we need to process our disappointments and our suffering. We need to cultivate resilience and recover from the suffering caused by accidents, bias, chaos, climate emergencies, conflict, discrimination, drought, exclusion, famines, floods, hurricanes, illness, tornados violence, warfare, and wildfires.
Suppressed human heartache and suffering, often referred to as trauma may make us “blind”. Unhealed emotional trauma is often the proverbial “elephant in the room “, trampling through our lives, hurting, and harming our relationships with ourselves, our family members, communities, and even entire nations. We suspect that unhealed suffering is amplified and intensified by the constant pain and stress of modern living.
We, modern have created highly competitive, hierarchical, punitive, and unhealthy societies. Hence we live with pandemic levels of addiction, anxiety, chronic illness, disconnect, grief and loneliness. We know that we humans have a tremendous inherent capacity to care, cultivate compassion, connection, and kindness, and increase our resilience. We also know that post-traumatic growth is possible.
Hence, we set our intention to heal ourselves, our families, our communities, and our living planet. We choose to encourage, support each other and join in inclusive, supportive, and welcoming circles. We believe that our lives are happier and healthier when we create relatively equal, caring societies. Linked together in a circle, we know that we have the support needed when we stumble and fall.
So we set our intention to heal ourselves, our families, our communities and our living planet. During these stormy times, we invite all our neighbours to walk with us, through the doorway of Truth and Reconciliation, to heal people and the planet, find quiet coves and co-create safe havens.
