Video: Adelia Sandoval – the graceful power of love

The final film in our series follows Adelia Sandoval, cultural director for the Acjachemen Nation, the indigenous people of Orange County, California.

Her ministry is called Song of the Earth, a Native American Healing service in an outdoor sanctuary. “A very basic premise of our traditions and teachings is that all life is sacred,” says Adelia. “But the most important thing to get is, if all life is sacred, then so am I.”

Speaking about power Adelia says: “I’ve been taught that power isn’t about having control over a group of people. Women have the key to what true power is, and that is the ability to love. Loving is the most powerful thing you can do.”

Enjoy the film.
