Business Impact Award

Tell Us Your Story. What motivated you to start your business? Why are you passionate about what you do?

Fires of Compassion was inspired by Denise Richard through a dedication to care. It all began in the early 90's with her indigenous ordination that committed to hold counsel in support of all faiths, Denise Richard then opened her first studio in support of health and spiritual care. In the late 90's Fires of Compassion was born to include a distinction of earthstewardship in ministry.With an interest in old traditions of stewardship that included earth based healing protocols, a new view was created . Fires of Compassion helped to format a stewardship program that would inspire collective care on all levels of need by engaging in research and development to protect cultural health. Ongoing work supports the development of programs for physical restoration and spiritual programs that elevate the need for whole body health and community land care. Today, Fires of Compassion welcomes all to know one trusted fire.

With years of experience in spiritual care and education in health restoration, Denise Richard wanted to engage a bigger view for health. Therefore this model for care needed to include environmental awareness. Her process for care helped establish a relationship with agencies that brought high standards to community. The Fires of Compassion programs were not easy to develop since the union of officials could not engage in ordinary world views. The promotion of Fires of Compassion programming in that time had no visual need at high levels of government. This gave Denise Richard an idea to bring her programs to a community level and develop a way of engagement, She promoted care of land, care for community and care for families in a unique health and recreation program. This was reflected through her service with Environmental Climate Action Advisory Commitee, Emergency Social Services, Cultural Master Plan and the Community Wellness and Recreation, Participation with these community care agencies highlighted the need for environmental care and brought forth spiritual care in reflection of climate action. The surge of need was seen through the issue of other programs that could not reach a masterful level of health and development. Fires of Compassion is viewed with high standards; a unique service and resource of care in spiritual counsel of earthstewardship.
