In this episode, Anita shares the four sacred gifts she offers in her book, The Four Sacred Gifts: Indigenous Wisdom for Modern Times. Anita then tells a story from her childhood that shows the power of The Gift of the Power to Forgive the Unforgiveable. She also shares a big AHA moment during her Process. She learned of the power that a pattern of rebellion ‘against another’ can hold. It takes a lot of energy to stay connected through rebellion.

Anita speaks of how we are all indigenous in the anthropological sense. We are all “from the Earth”, she tells us. She goes on to say that “some of us have, for thousands of years, consistently lived the tradition of the original knowledge.” She invites us to learn about who we are and where we came from.
