First Nations Health


We wish to acknowledge that Compassion Inspired Health is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. 

We are honoured to have been invited to present Mindful Self-Compassion based workshops to the First Nations Health Directors Association (FNHDA) Conference, FNHDA Board Members, Lil’Wat First Nations and Tsow Tun Le Lum Substance Abuse and Trauma Treatment Centre. 

We recently partnered with the FNDHA Head to Heart Wellness Program supporting First Nations Health Directors to care for themselves while doing the important work they do caring for their communities.  Victoria offered a Webinar on Compassion Inspired Eating and all members received a personal deck of Compassion Inspired Eating Cards

If you are interested in bringing Mindful Self-Compassion training and/or Self-Compassion Cards to your community, please contact

What people are saying…

I loved the opportunity to be here, explore self-compassion in a personal/spiritual way, to practice with others and to connect with our common humanity.  Knowing I am not alone, but instead a part and together with others on this journey of life.  It was awesome.  Thank you.

I loved everything about this workshop.  I loved the ‘laid back’ facilitation of such deep material.  I loved getting the opportunity to practice the different stages/types of self-compassion meditation.  I found this healing and therapeutic.  If I am healthy, I can help others be healthier by sharing good healing energy.  Thank you for sharing this life-changing technique of learning to love myself like I deserve.

This workshop was very good.  I loved the ‘one breath for me and one breath for you exercise.  It reminds me that I don’t have to fix everything.  the workshop was nicely done and had a very safe feeling.  I am happy you have a ‘romer’ facilitator to help keep the room safe and balanced with a loving eye.
