A Heartfelt Welcome to all Relatives of the Human Family.
The time has come to face and heal the deep wounds of intergenerational sexual abuse, rape, and incest.
All Members of our Human Family, you are warmly and lovingly invited to attend and participate in this very important live Global Webinar, facilitated by Howard Vincent, film producer, and counselor, Lyla June Johnson, acclaimed international artist, and Chief Phil Lane Jr., global changemaker. Learn what can happen when we stand united to “Counting Coup on Sexual Abuse, Rape and Incest”.
Find out how you can be part of this united, global movement to address and heal this sexual violence. It is time that we heal together and protect future generations from all violence, which is destined to be healed, as prophesied.
The time has come to face and heal the deep wounds of intergenerational sexual abuse, rape, and incest. The healing process starts from within, with each of us, and by role-modeling this process in our families and communities. These deep wounds, unaddressed and unhealed intergenerational trauma, cause tremendous violence in our lives and in our communities. Peace on Mother Earth cannot take place without us standing up, in unprecedented, unified action, to heal those wounds from their intergenerational roots.
We have carefully chosen the words 'Counting Coup' and this practice because 'Counting coup' refers to spiritually winning 'the battle', without serious injuries. We see this as the deepest and most long lasting way to create a new beginning, and with it a New World, as prophesied.

"It is a great honor and inspiration to be with you as we fulfill the sacred prophecies of the wise visionaries and spiritual leaders of all our tribes and nations. These ancient prophecies promised that after a long, difficult, and painful wintertime, of 500 years, our Indigenous peoples would fully arise from the ashes of our suffering and play a great role in the spiritual transformation of the entire human family."
