Jerry Tello Keynote Address: Recovering Your Sacredness
Introduction by Hector Sanchez-Flores, Executive Director, National Compadres Network
Our society is experiencing profound levels of stress and anxiety, a public health crisis that’s triggering unresolved traumas in many people, resulting in widespread uneasiness, poor public health, social dysfunction, and alienation, as well as high levels of violence, suicide, and substance abuse. Through traditional stories and personal reflections, Jerry Tello, raised in South Central Los Angeles, co-founder of the Healing Generations Institute, a celebrated leader in the field of the transformational healing of traumatized men and boys of color, will share his approach to generating the “medicine” necessary to shield ourselves from this toxic energy, and offer us pathways to discover, uncover and recover our sacredness and return to health and wellbeing.
