Offering Visionary Leadership Training - Healing, Optimism, Purpose, Evolution
Helpers Mentoring Society's Bison Project continues to be developed over the winter. At this time, the project is focused on supporting the small herd to thrive through the long cold season. The video above shows pictures and footage from a trail cam placed in the bison pasture. The bison (and other wildlife) grazes on about 20 acres of grass and wood areas at this time. This is enough land to support our small herd, with hay supplementation. Our future plans include fund raising to purchase/lease more acreage to grow the size of the herd - and public accessibility.
Many people around the world travel to South Dakota to connect to this incredible landscape and the creatures of this ecosystem. Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors travel to the Black Hills of South Dakota, many seeking to witness and bond with the bison. Unfortunately, each year people approach wild bison and cross into this powerful animal's personal space - often leading to...
We as human beings have this incredible power of unification and connection amongst ourselves, and with nature. And why do we have this ability? If we really question, why do we have this ability and what could it do for the world around us, it quickly becomes apparent that we have an ability to actually help nature in a very profound way.
I understand that every being in nature has a function to fill. And every being except humans is filling that function. Nature is changing and its moving energy - creating balance when it's all coordinated. The insects are moving through the soil and creating nutrients in the soil. Then that energy becomes, let us say a bird who is now attending the trees and moving upon the land. The birds are helping plants to grow and trees to grow, even by eating the berries and then releasing dropping that come out of it. Life is moving and it is creating this kind of mosaic of energy. Because of that, there's abundance and health - and...
It is our birth right as a human being to be able to connect to nature. Connection is great but what do we learn from the interactions with others? When a being of nature sits close to you do you ever get the sense that it is communicating with you? This is occurring all the time if we have the ears and the awareness to hear it.
In this video both Jacqueline and Sal will explore the connection between human beings and our natural relatives on this earth and delve into the relationship that is present between us and how we can learn to perceive the messages that are so important at this time. We will look at how through these relationships we can seek guidance in our lives. Nature is reaching out to the human family in loving desperation for us to change and live in a different way. Join us to learn to hear the messages that can inform us how to live.
We know that a connected individual can help the healing of others, but can we physically impact our environment through our own connections? Can we bring balance back to nature and have it thrive once again? In this video we explore what true miracles are possible if we walk a connected life. We call this the Helpers Journey and it is one of the reasons we created our 8 month program of the same name to help create truly connected human beings.

Throughout the turmoil of this year, we have found the ceremonies of this lineage to have been of profound support and an opportunity for deep, deep listening to how to best be in service to life. We are reaching out to everyone we know who is deeply committed to the creation of a healthier world to join their prayers with others around the globe to help re-energize the Earth.
This whole year has been a time of transition and great change for everyone and, as we have all experienced, prayer is one of our strongest anchors in these times. Moggie shared a call-out with us from the indigenous Australian elders who are seeking to enable simultaneous prayers around the world to help re-energize the earth by intensifying and increasing the global network of love and light, culminating with a collective prayer on the 21st December. Details of the original request are given below.
In order to build a depth of connection within this time...
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise. ~ Aldo Leopold
We have a concept of righting the wrong as passed down through the lineage teachings:
Mission Statement - To right the wrongs for health and well-being now and in service to the future generations.
What increases physical manifested life? Just to be clear, there life in spirit and there is physical life. They are not the same.

After years of investigation, I believe that many of us subconsciously know that our life is not meeting our deepest needs on some level, yet we accept the world as it is.
We know that life is supposed to be more. It should be filled with interconnectedness, nourishing experiences, growth, learning, and the actualization of our creative genius. Subconsciously we know that life is meant to be an opportunity to explore what it means to develop a self-identity, to be in relationships with others, to understand our place in the universe.
Unfortunately, we were born into societies that are unable to meet our fundamental needs. We know something is not right in the world; something is lacking that we cannot quite put our finger on. We instinctively know that our inner spiritual center is not being developed the way it is supposed to be.
By the time we consciously understand this as adults we already have the culmination of years of lack of guidance...
In this 1 hour video we will explore how we as human beings alive today can be a vessel for the healing of the relationship to the ancestors and the effects this can have both now and into the future. Being alive holds the gift and responsibility for both the past and the future.
Where did I start to understand the value of the ancestral connection?
My greatest teacher of ancestral connection was Godfrey’s fathers Ellis Chipps.
Over the past 6 months, Helpers Mentoring Society has taken the initial steps in creating a long-term vision we are calling the Bison Project. The Bison Project endeavors to create a regenerative bison (American Buffalo) management program which brings healing and connection to the land, people, and traditional Native American culture. We have purchased three young bison, including two yearling heifers and one male calf to start our initial herd. Over the past months, many hours have been spent improving our fences and creating holding pens for feeding and watering. We have also been studying and learning how to holistically manage bison and land for the health and abundance of the ecosystem.
The teachings of Helpers Mentoring Society’s founder, Sal Gencarelle, was primarily informed through his almost three decades of apprenticing and learning the spiritual/cultural practices of the Lakota Sioux – specifically the Woptura lineage. His years of...
How is the current challenging state of the world related to the unhealed trauma of the ancestors? How is this unhealed trauma affecting the thinking and decisions of people alive now? What can we do about this?
In this 42 minute video Sal Gencarelle presents about healing the ancestral connection to help heal the current challenges. The unhealed grief for the ancestors are causing the modern expressions of trauma.
