Leadership is complicated. What is it? (0:09)

The definition of chronic pain. (2:14)

Chronic pain is anything that is felt 15 days out of 30 for three months or more, so grief is a chronic pain experience.
Unresolved trauma in the system is also chronic pain.
Chronic pain includes things like grief and emotions we hold on to, such as grief.
The number of people living with chronic pain is typically at least a 6 out of 10, sometimes, it’s a 10 out of 10, and someone close to you has never had chronic pain.
The cycle of suffering is the negative cycle that happens when the pain becomes chronic.
The problem with chronic pain is in the brain.

Cultural safety and humility. (14:17)

Cultural violence, cultural violence, cultural safety, humility, and cultural safety are the five elements of cultural healing.
Ancestral healing has impacted people’s ability to walk through the world. It has impacted our ability to lead from a leadership perspective.

Leadership is not competition, it is collaboration, and it’s not separate.

The release of energy that is not serving you. (29:17)

Forgiveness is just releasing what is not serving you, not forgetting or giving permission to someone who is wrong to you. It’s just saying this isn’t serving you anymore.
The ancestral aspect is so important because it helps shed beliefs and limitations that you walked into the room with.

Adequately addressing medical trauma is a huge piece of the healing process,

and if people don’t talk about it and normalize it like they do other aspects of mental health, it still can be very isolating and make people feel like there’s something wrong with them.

What happens to one happens to all. (40:10)

The individual doesn’t exist alone, the individual exists in the context of a culture, so it’s important to talk about medical trauma as a group.
The Western medical model is too reductionist, where one can’t separate mind and body from spirit. It’s all one.

How to integrate ancestral healing into personal and professional lives, and what people can do on a regular basis to start the process of integrating this into their lives.
