This show was recorded on the 75th anniversary of the U.S. dropping the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. GK Hunter shares a touching story detailing why he wanted to make a documentary about the meeting between Japanese survivors of the atomic bomb and American survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack (Sakura and Pearls: Healing from World War 2).

This episode expands on last week's show. It includes George describing his own healing in the making of the documentary. 

As George has written, there's a strong connection between cross-cultural healing and happiness. "In order to heal the past, we need to build meaningful bridges where people from all backgrounds can find relief, healing, and reconciliation. This leads to a collective happiness in society, rather than just the rare few being happy."

After 15 years of working as an intuitive healer with Jewish Holocaust Survivors, Native Americans, the homeless, veterans, physicians, and community leaders, GK Hunter developed a step-by-step process to unburdening the heavy history that we inherit from our ancestors.

Based on those years of research and experiences, he created a model of healing which he wrote about in his book, Healing Our Bloodlines: The 8 Realizations of Generational Liberation.

Hunter was the director of Sakura & Pearls: Healing from World War 2, a documentary about Japanese survivors of the atomic bomb meeting the American survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack.

He's made presentations at the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Cornell University, and been a guest on NPR’s All Things Considered.

George Kamana Hunter (GK Hunter) has a rich ancestral lineage, including Irish, northern European, and Mohawk. In this episode, George and Melanie talk a lot about ancestral or inherited trauma and how to begin healing.

In the Forward to George's book, Healing Our Bloodlines: The 8 Realizations of Generational Liberation, Dr. Eduardo Duran writes “I have found that most, if not all of the symptoms that we treat in many of our healthcare settings have their genesis in trauma, also know as “Injury where blood doesn’t flow” by indigenous ways of knowing. The injury where blood doesn’t flow becomes part of the bloodlines that carry the injury into subsequent generations.”

This episode covers a lot of intriguing ground.

"Stress management is the open door to walk through." So says Dr. Brian Luke Seaward, an international teacher, speaker, corporate trainer, and author of tons of books on the topic.

Luke is not only educated, articulate, and wise, but he's also (very) entertaining. There are clearly many reasons he's been a sought-after corporate and conference presenter for so many years.

Talk ranges from the connection between stress and spirituality to his mentor Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, and from the seasons of the soul to victim/victors stories.

In the 2nd half, Luke shares one of the best descriptions of anger Melanie's ever heard.

What a pleasure it was to sit with this master teacher!

Heads-up ... Luke does another show next week.
