Replay: How we can draw on indigenous wisdom for the challenges facing us now
Replay: Panel Discussion with Anita Sanchez, Lily Seto, and Michelle DeGroot.
In order to accommodate different time zones, and those who can’t attend the keynote session live, we offer you to join a facilitated Replay session on the same topic.
The replay session will include a recording of the panel discussion, breakout rooms to discuss the topics, and question-and-answer opportunities.
In this panel, Anita, Lily, and Michelle will discuss the inner conditions for regenerative, harmonious relations with Self, other People, and the Earth.
Join a storytelling circle, where three coaches share their stories about what Indigenous wisdom means to them and how they use this wisdom in their coaching realm. And, you will be invited to leave with something to take forward in a practical way, that will tend to self, others, and Mother Nature.

Lily Seto: As I reflect on the Lunar New Year that arrived in late January, I am honoured and grateful for my ancestors and all they did to enable me to be where I am right now, in the Year of the Rabbit. My given anglicized name is Lily Seto, and I am third of five generations of immigrants to Canada. I am grateful to live on the traditional territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ people. specifically, the BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin) First Nation and W̱SĺḴEM (Tseycum) First Nation. I have had the privilege to partner with Indigenous clients and First Nations communities for a number of years and draw parallels to some teachings that resonate with my Chinese ancestry. Let’s highlight some of the tools that our ancestors taught us that honour Mother Earth.
