A Man Among the Helpers - The Book that Started Helpers Mentoring Society

Uncategorized Feb 14, 2024


Did you know that the book that kicked off the teachings of Helpers Mentoring Society is still in publication? Over the years we have also professionally produced an audio book version! Each year new people find their way to reading A Man Among the Helpers and to Helpers Mentoring Society. Below are ways to access both the hard copy and the audio book versions. 


Paper Back Book 

Audio Book Version 


This book is my personal experience with the traditions of the Lakota people. I do not claim to be Lakota, nor an expert on all things Lakota. I can only speak from my times with these medicine ways and ancient traditions. Lakota spirituality is not a dogmatic religion; each medicine family has its own particular connection to the Grandfathers, and these various connections require different approaches. Due to this, what you read here may differ greatly from your own personal experiences or understandings of Lakota or other Native American traditions.

Personal Spiritual Knowing - Guidance for the Coming Times

Uncategorized Jan 31, 2024

Over and over, we have been shown that to live in the future we must change. The environment and human condition tell us that it suffers at our disconnected hands. We can perceive the disconnection in the ongoing inability of human beings to find peace together or live in accordance with natural law. But how do we change? What are the steps that must be taken to ensure life thrives into the future? Personal spiritual knowing is how! We start the change by knowing ourselves fully as part of this creation – and then finding our place with the Creative Powers. To know oneself requires a profound knowing of your own spiritual connection. It’s time to develop yourself to the point where spiritual communication is clear and guidance is easily perceived without the static of disconnection. The time is now to obtain this level of personal, authentic, and sovereign spiritual authority. There may not be an opportunity to do this in the future!

Setting Intentions for Connection Webinar

Uncategorized Jan 05, 2024

With the New Year now here, we are offered the opportunity to reflect upon the year past and to set intentions for the next seasons. Finding a connected, clear, and passionate intention creates the opportunity to lay a pathway into our future - not just as individuals but holistically with creation. The Universe has a foundation based on relationship connectivity. For too long, people have ignored its place in this web of relativity, causing a fraying of the web-of-life upon the Earth. In setting intentions for the future, we must reach beyond ourselves and seek guidance from both the natural world and the spiritual. Connecting our personal intentions to nature and spirit ensures alignment with the flow of life - so creative power can guide us. In this free webinar, we discuss the importance of orientation to connection in supporting the setting of intentions. We offer ways to develop the understanding and connectivity to guide our intentions, goals, and action – in support of...

Navigating the Transformation - Deep Listening and Ceremony

Uncategorized Dec 17, 2023

Humanity’s need to change is intensely apparent as we witness the escalation of world events. The health of the environment that supports life is shifting, and its ability to stay in balance is beyond a physical solution. As the ongoing conflicts across the world increase, the mental health of people is pushed further and further towards the edge. It is clear a vast change is needed. People are being instructed by LIFE that we need to transform into a more connected reality to survive - but how do we navigate our way through the worldwide consciousness shift?


In a recent Vision Quest, we were offered deep insight into traversing these difficult times. The Quest revealed a path that potentially lies ahead of us and what we need to live through these massive shifts in the world. In this free webinar, we will offer the guidance and messages from the Quest and how we can apply these teachings to our lives. Hosted by Salvatore Gencarelle, Founder of Helpers Mentoring...

The Wheel of Life Quarterly Ceremonies

Uncategorized Dec 12, 2023

The need for regular ceremonies to support life to be healthy has never been more present, especially considering all the global instability. For thousands of years, the Solstices and Equinoxes have been times of connection, ceremony and setting intentions. With so much brewing in the modern world fueled by unresolved grief and with very little to counteract this, holding regular worldwide ceremonies can be a way to support the healing needed at this time. The Wheel of Life Quarterly ceremonies aim to provide a coordinated way to unite our collective intentions for healing and wellness. We align these intentions and ceremonial events to the cycles of nature, life, and each other to unlock greater avenues of support from the creational forces. Watch the video to learn more about the overarching vision for these Wheel of Life Ceremonies and to find out how you can join the December Solstice ceremonies worldwide. Hosted by Salvatore Gencarelle and Penny Jerram.

Vision Quest Report 2023 - Listening to Spirit and Increasing Healing

Uncategorized Nov 21, 2023

In early October this year I embarked on the annual overnight Vision Quest. This quest is held as part of my responsibility in managing Helpers Mentoring Society and all the communities touched by the teaching we provide. As I do each year, I pray and ask for guidance for how to move the spiritual healing of humanity forward in the best way, and for any information that needs to be shared to the Helpers community. 


This year’s quest was unusually challenging to me. Typically, I experience a sense of serenity and calm as I enter the quest. I also typically experience physical comfort during the quest. This year that was not the case. I experienced a sense of tension on a mental and emotional level for much of the quest. Physically I struggled with the cold, even though I have previously quested in MUCH colder weather. The spiritual communication was also challenging to receive and filled with warning. I was happy when the long night was over, and I could return to...

Bison People Land V/log - Autumn 2023

Uncategorized Nov 12, 2023

Summer has quickly passed into fall and now fall is almost winter. Over the past month Bison People Land has gone through tremendous changes. The project has grown into a collaborative venture with Eco-Restoration Communities, the organization has incorporated, we have lost and gained a newborn bison calf, and had to cull our beloved bull, Buck. All of this, in combination with land management, numerous ceremonial events, and international travel has prevented me from providing an earlier update on Bison People Land.  


We were blessed in June to have a newborn calf join our small herd. The calf quickly grew into a playful young bison. Over the past months her light cinnamon coat has transitioned into the thicker and darker hues of a mature bison yearling. The nourishing milk from her doting mother has been more than enough to support her accelerated development. Even now, after transitioning to grazing, she stays close to her mother, sometimes still attempting to nurse....

Tracking our Roots in Nature Presentation by Jon Young

Uncategorized Oct 02, 2023

An opportunity to join the live audience for re-recording of Seeing Through Native Eyes...


Forty years ago, Jon Young began offering mentoring programs for young people that grew into a world-wide network of mentors helping communities connect to nature, themselves and other people. The foundations of Seeing through Native Eyes and Kamana began in 1983, supported thousands of people's learning and connection journeys over 40 years, and continue to this day. 


Tracking our Roots in Nature is both the name of this live re-record journey and is also what the final product of the newly recorded version of Seeing Through Native Eyes will be called.  


We are happy to have the opportunity to re-visit the invaluable wisdom within these offerings, to honor the origins of the teachings, and to bring this forward to the Future Generations in a good way.
