Re-Weaving the Web of Belonging: “The Inside Is Not, and The Outside Is Too” | john a. powell, Eriel Deranger & Anita Sanchez

Bioneers: Revolution From the Heart of Nature | Bioneers Radio Series

As author Michael Pollan observes: “The two biggest crises humanity faces today are tribalism and the environmental crisis. They both involve the objectifying of the other - whether that other is nature or other people.”How do we re-weave that web of relationships, and focus on our likenesses rather than our differences? In this program, racial justice advocates john a. powell, Eriel Deranger and Anita Sanchez explore how overcoming the illusion of separateness from nature and each other requires building bridges rather than burning them. They say the fate of the world depends on it.

Soul Journeys®

Anita Sanchez, Ph.D., Nawat (Aztec) and Mexican-American, is a transformational leadership consultant, speaker, coach and author of the 2019 International Latino Book Award for The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times (Simon & Schuster). She bridges indigenous teachings with the latest science to inspire and equip women and men to enjoy meaningful, empowered lives and careers. Conscious Company Media 2020 World Changing Woman & World Woman Foundation #SheismyHero awards. Learn more: www.foursacredgifts.com The powerful dream that Dr. Sanchez received at age 3 that shaped her mission today. Her experience with economic poverty, sexual trauma and the intense grief of her father murdered at age 13. The horrific story of her father being murdered when she was 13 due to race relations and how she was able to find immense peace. The voice she heard when she was sobbing over her father’s death and the death of George Floyd.  How the “Four Sacred Gifts” were birthed. Gift #1: The power to forgive the unforgivable.  Gift #2: The power of unity. Gift #3: The power of healing. Gift #4: The power of hope in action.  “If you use these gifts, you’ll know how to be in right relationship with yourself and all other beings.” Each of us already has these gifts—the power is in using them. What does hope in action look like in the Great Awakening? “With every breath, every thought and everything, we have a choice. We’re making that choice - it’s either going to be good medicine or bad medicine.” The important question to ask yourself: “What do you believe—are you separate or are you connected?” “We don’t do anything alone. You might get lonely from time to time—that’s the human condition, but you are not alone.” It doesn’t matter which gift you start with because they’re all connected—just start where your heart is being called. How to navigate the urgency with living in alignment with these gifts. “The doing and the being are all mirrors of each other; everything is connected.” Hope is an energy source. It can’t be taken away from you.  What Dr. Sanchez believes we should focus on this year.  The beautiful experience with her grandmother and sunflowers.  5 Things for Thriving In Challenging Times free e-book: http://foursacredgifts.com?afmc=1e

Dr Anita Sanchez on indigenous wisdom, surviving the trauma of abuse, and the power to forgive the unforgivable

The Matthew Green Podcast

How is our difficulty in facing our own personal traumas reflected in the problems we see playing out in society? In this deeply moving exchange, Matthew hears how Dr Anita Sanchez, an author, consultant and executive coach, learned to draw on the wisdom of her ancestors to transmute the trauma caused by the terrible abuse she suffered as a child and the race-related murder of her father . The author of the internationally award-winning book, The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times, published by Simon & Schuster, Anita has spent 40 years building a bridge between indigenous traditions and corporate culture. Her mission: to help top executives in companies around the world to create truly diverse and inclusive organisations, and drive wider change by confronting racial injustice and oppression. Anita and Matthew discuss how repressed suffering and unexpressed emotion may be a big part of the reason why the world is struggling to find adequate responses to the multiple crises societies face, and how rekindling our connection to Earth and Spirit can empower us to face our fears and create a more regenerative future.  This episode was recorded in July, 2020. In October, Anita was named by the World Woman Foundation as one of 60 "Women of the Hour" for the #SheisMyHero campaign aimed at inspiring one million girls around the world to live their dreams and pursue leadership.

How can we be a life-giving member in this one hoop of life?”  How she sees violence to one another based on race or gender, and violence to ourselves by separating head and heart, now giving way to awareness of our interconnections. “The footprint we’re putting on the Earth is the same footprint we’re putting on other people, is the same footprint we’re putting on ourselves.”  “I don’t understand it in terms that we are bad, but rather that we’ve forgotten and now we get to remember…and what is urgent is that we ALL remember…”A “big awakening for all of us is that we are not alone, we are not just an individual, we are part of this amazing, amazing thing called life, and home is everything, and everything in this home is sacred!” “Good medicine is anyone who puts into alignment the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.”  The meanings of the Four Sacred Gifts: the power to forgive the unforgivable, the power of unity, the power of healing, and the power of hope. How her trauma around the race-related murder of her father was triggered by events of 2020, and how she re-aligned to respond to the here and now to “create what is life-giving in this world.” Forgiving is not to forget, but to create something different for today.
