What specific problem are you solving?

'LIL' (Loveinmvmt Living) UPLIFT 4.0 is leading the way by impacting individual and organizational cultural competency and performance through mindfulness-based practices, Yoga and Integrative-Recovery Rituals. LIL programs are specifically designed to support greater clarity and resilience, improve situational awareness, better decision making, work/life integration, and superior long-term recovery and integrative-healing for individuals and organizations.

Seeking and Valuing wisdom and relation to lineage, culture, tradition, truth, individual experience, hope and  integrative pathways of recovery-healing for BIPOC Communities, Former Foster Youth- Transitional Youth Aging out of Systems, Survivors of DV, MMIWG2S/Family Members.

Unbox, Praise, Listen, Inquire, Feature (Fashion) Transmit (Transcend) Integrative pathway of Recovery for ALL AGES, ACES and RACES - a way of dismantling systemic barriers, impacting the safety, healing, and preserving sovereignty of BIPOC and marginalized communities. 

Rooted in the foundation of CASEL Curriculum, Kripalu Yoga in the Schools, Trauma Informed Care and culturally founded service for sexual assault survivors and those living with past trauma, (online, tele-health, in-person 1:1 training, retreat experiences) Loveinmvmt Living is about optimizing who you are, and what you are capable of. 

With an emphasis on the use of self in the helping process via belief in power of “wounded healers” The recognition that experiencing and overcoming an affliction, can engender knowledge that can be used to help others similarly afflicted. LIL Programs are personalized to meet individuals exactly as they are, whether it's day one or one hundred on their recovery pathway. 

Trauma Education, Strength- Resilience Training and Collaborative Academic Social Emotional Learning programs (Brigham And Women's Hospital, Harvard University, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, KYIS) that bridge dichotomized views and gaps in trauma-informed-health-care access. 

Built on emotional authenticity, moral equality, justice, and the distinction of negative advantages that present and reinforce present day hierarchies - LIL UPLIFT 4.0 (KYIS*) programs have demonstrated that its yoga curriculum, which includes postures, breath work, and didactic lessons woven throughout each class, can shift mindsets and behaviors in Adolescents and Post-Secondary Athletes. *Ongoing research on the program conducted by the Institute in collaboration with Harvard Medical School researchers and Brigham And Young's Women's Hospital, found that adolescents are better able to manage anger, harness resilience, and decrease fatigue than their counterparts who simply participated in gym class.

The recognition that experiencing and overcoming an affliction, can engender knowledge that can be used to help others similarly afflicted. 

Programs and cultural services spaces of healing can balance both cultural knowledge and mainstream - CASEL Curriculum, (Collaborative, Academic, Social, Emotional, Learning) Life and Recovery skills necessary for an American Indian youth and their successful transition to adulthood, motivates individuals to focus on a common goal, inspires enthusiasm, dedication, and commitment and motivates a strong regard for the honor of the group while building a sense of pride and service connections that make a difference.

-Increase enjoyment, morale and motivation. 

-Provides encouragement, reminders, safety, and strength to continue the process of change. 

The following vital elements reinforce UPLIFT 4.0 via the emphasis on empowering- strategy -  cultural renewal, community development and trauma informed, healing forces and empower transition-age youth (ages 14-26) experience, voice, and input. Unbox, Praise, Listen, Inquire, Feature (Fashion) Transmit (Transcend)

Many of our values are deep seated and come from early life experiences. Cultural preservation plans must be created where culture can be nurtured and experienced. Modern culture has used labels to denote devalued social categories and therefore we need to be honest about our biases and work to overcome them. The labels influence public perceptions and behaviors and serve to devalue and diminish, denigrate and discriminate. Cultural knowledge can help to heal the trauma of neglect, abuse and trauma for children aging out of foster care the spiritual connection that can offer a source of strength, cultural preservation and protection as they make their way to adulthood. Appreciating diverse potentials and experiences and the stress within ourselves and know that we have much to gain from each other and survivor led experiences, traditional, storytelling, fellowship, paternal temperance. 

Research reveals that foster youth have difficulty transitioning to life after emancipation. Many live on the streets, lack funds for basic living expenses, lack regular employment and are often involved with the criminal justice system. For American Indian Youth, the loss of cultural identity compounds these negative outcomes. The underlying intent of the Indian Child Welfare Act is preservation of cultural identify for American Indian children. To ensure a healthy sense of cultural identity, it is best for a child to remain with their respective tribe, family or extended family. 

EXAMPLES:

Cultural teachings unearth individual resilience as documented with many personal stories in Wounded Warriors by Doyle Arbogast. These interviewed individuals found - "what their ancestors always knew-the pathways to peace, balance, and living are found by taking responsibility to honor the beauty, spirit, and the mystery of their own heritage"— Arbogast, (1995, p. 1) 

Sungmanitu Hanska, (Long Coyote) says, "getting involved and attending things that are part of my people's ways have been incredibly significant. I have a seed inside that needs to be nourished before it will grow. When this seed gets a little nourishment, like permission and encouragement, or an invitation for myself to nourish it, it begins to sprout. I am beginning to understand that the seed is my Spirit" — Arbogast, (1995, p. 84) 

Cultural practices unlock our human potential. Sisoka Luta, (Jerome Kills Small) states, "through the drum I feel the Native American part of my spirituality. I have a special bond with it. I know that a lot of the others find the greater part of their strength in other things like the sweatlodge and the pipe. For me, I get my strength from the drum." — Arbogast, (1995, p. 145) 

Loveinmvmt Living Uplift 4.0  has determined cultural competency an integral part of our ancestral healing work. Generating integrative healing, access to tribal solutions, recovery pathways, justice, issues, cultural and land based practices, tradition, lived experiences to heal the imprints of trauma as they arise within survivors’ physical, mental, emotional and spirit-self. Through renewal, reverence, and reclamation in adapting mind-body techniques and creating opportunities to self-connect the physiology of the nervous system through whole-health, integrative, land based-cultural practices, traditional teachings, somatic experiences, integrative healing and larger scale, global communities. 

“Rev-Circles” 

Strengthen awareness, advocacy and approachable pathways through personal 1:1 Strength & Resilience Coaching, Virtual-Renewal and On or Off Reservation Experiences, Holistic Movement, Breath Coaching, LIVESTREAM and LIVE WORKSHOP EVENTS (On or Off Reservation. In partnership with grassroots, healers, artists, healers, visionaries and wisdom keepers- Athletes and other indigenous impacters living in and not limited to ME, NH, CA, WI, NM, BC, RI, AK - both on and off reservation) fostering respect for individual differences and facilitating group cohesion.

What is your solution?

Unlocking community resilience and promoting self-inquiry, determination and understanding of what caused the imbalance in order to learn how to regain balance in relationship with others and the world of nature surrounding them. 

UPLIFT 4.0 provides workable answers to pain and suffering, fluid, interconnected “healthy thought recognition”, and recovery- integration for BIPOC communities.The goal is for individuals to recognize when they are out of balance in body, mind, spirit, and heart. 

“Rev-Circles” have been compared in relevance to Native American Talking Circles and Network Therapy, which mobilizes members of the family and extended family, into maximizing their resources and coping mechanisms. 

  • Effectively Foster Respect
  • Model Active Listening and SEL Skills  Resolve conflict
  • Educate
  • Affiliate 
  • Build Self-Esteem 

Hybrid- In-Person - Telehealth - Integrative Healing- Recovery Pathways and Renewal Experiences- that mobilizes resources within and increases the prevalence and quality of long-term healing and other secular pathways of recovery-healing. Experiential retreats and quarterly training modules, provide participants with a structure that promotes self-exploration and inquiry in a safe, empathic and supportive atmosphere. 

This calls for cooperation and synergy; science is not likely to become a significant addiction treatment until it moves beyond contributing to societies knowledge of addiction, towards a replicable technology of human transformation. A science of addiction will have little relevance until it is accompanied by a science of recovery and a science of prevention. 

-Advance an equity focus on expectant and parenting foster youth, foster youth who have been commercially and sexually exploited, transracial adoptees, LGBTQ+ TA

-Address the systemic inequalities and marginalized youth and families of color in the child welfare system

-Advance national momentum through partnership, collaboration, traditional-teaching, harm reduction and most importantly integrative-recovery pathways that support the dismantling of racial and social inequities, including discrimination and economic inequality, reflected in BIPOC communities and within our foster care system. 

-Support young people of color, young people who have been commercially exploited (80% of CSECY have interacted with the child welfare system - disproportionately BIPOC and Indigenous) and young women who are pregnant (pregnant and parenting youth: 33% of girls transitioning out of foster care become pregnant by age 17 and 50% by 19).

Strong preference will be given to Native-led solutions that directly benefit and are located within the Indigenous communities. Which community(s) does your solution benefit? In what ways will your solution benefit this community?

At the center of my work as a coach is the belief in the healing powers of connection to communities of recovery whose members are bound by experience, strength, and hope. In the aftermath of my assault and exploitation -Uplift 4.0 was a way that I could process pain, shame and recovery; giving me the hope and the healing to persevere and step beyond intergenerational traumas, labels, stigmatization and into the role of helping peers, professionals, and educators to understand who I really am, who I can be and also, who others can be as well. 

The elders teach us that our children are gifts from the Creator, it is the family, community, school, and tribe’s responsibility to nurture, protect, and guide the generations to come.

It is critical that researchers, educators, and social service providers recognize the valid and positive role that culture and interconnectedness plays in supporting Native Youth and tapping into their resilience. It is important for children to have people in their lives who nurture their spirit, stand by them, encourage and support them. Our cultural identity is our source of strength. Determining workable answers to pain and suffering vs. empirical truths, amplifying Survivor’s voices by hearing their experiences and developing tailored, integrative, trauma education and healing services.

Embodied Native spirituality is integral to one’s daily life; spirituality is the concept of interconnectedness, cycle of seasons, and ceremonies that mark important times in our people’s lives, such as children naming ceremonies or other humane-healing-rites. Appropriate, cultural specific, story-telling, medicine-wheel teachings, and reverence circles. Virtual - APP- and *Live-Stream* Education that motivates young people in understanding the interconnectedness of the mind, spirit, heart and body. 

Traditionally, many Native American communities have used the talking circle as a way of bringing people, all ages together for the purposes of teaching, listening and learning. This method of education instilled respect for another’s viewpoint and encouraged members to be open to other viewpoints by listening to their hearts while another individual speaks. These experiential activities provide participants with a structure that promotes self-exploration and inquiry in a safe, empathic and supportive atmosphere. 

Advocating for policy changes at the local, state, and federal levels that promote multiple pathways of recovery, remove barriers to trauma care access and empower and motivate survivors by amplifying meaningful representation, transracial adoptee voices, foster youth and people in long-term recovery. 

'Coach Crystal Love' has delivered this life-changing program to frontline providers and leaders in some of the most critical social institutions in North America: human services organizations, 9-12 schools, correctional facilities, law enforcement, and with healthcare providers.

Peer-based recovery support pathways as an adjunct and (for some people) an alternative-access to addiction treatment, can educate the public, family members, policymakers, and service providers about the prevalence and pathways of addiction recovery, humankind, fiscal resources, recovery support services, recovery advocacy and  connection within communities.

As warriors, healers, visionaries and teachers, developing opportunities for survivor led support through community access, tribal solutions, justice, cultural and land based practices, story-telling and lived experience is a traditional custom and part of our ancestral healing work.

How are you and your team well-positioned to deliver this solution?

For me, as a transracial adoptee, White Privilege has been an elusive and fugitive subject that reminds me that whether earned or conferred by birth or luck, conditions work systemically; over empowering certain groups, and confers dominance because of one’s race or sex. Each layer impacts the capacity the individual, family, community and organization to heal and change. 

When we talk about power and privilege, we talk in terms of race, ethnicity, gender and class. Developing a practice of paying attention to culture is one of the core competencies of integrative-healing. 

Everyone, regardless where they begin, should have the opportunity to succeed. Stigma leads health care systems to withhold appropriate services. Transition-Age Youth (TAY) are the same as other young adults and as they move from teenagers to adult, Services that aim to guide their needs while providing opportunity to stay connected with resources and relationships that support ongoing success. When we effectively meet their needs, TAY can lead the kind of healthy, purposeful, and thriving life that is most desired, and that can make communities whole. 

Society needs to understand that one of the strongest aspects of power and privilege is that very often those who have it are not even aware of the extent of their privilege. Educators, Coaches and Impact Leaders must establish non-hierarchical or minimal hierarchy relationships based on mutuality of a shared experience

A long history of government conditions, leave Indigenous women more vulnerable to sexual violence, addiction, homelessness and incarceration. Health equity means that everyone has the opportunity to access resources and to live - healthy and with possibility. The impact of mental illness and stigma around mental illness can rob individuals of rightful life opportunities. As a transracial adoptee - being labeled and stigmatized - exposed me to distorted experiences with criminal/mental/ health/medical treatment. 

LIL Programs offer life skills, access to mental health services, multiple recovery pathways, and ongoing supportive relationship with community and healers - supportive relationships that improve transition-age foster youth’s overall well-being in the long-term. 

Celebrating multiple pathways of recovery through my own lived and relative survivor experiences, this requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access togged ops with fair pay, quality education, housing, safe environments and health care. 

Culturally founded recovery services and integrative lifestyle approaches that impact and restore matriarchy, traditional Indigenous teachings, knowledge of Wellness and Balance:

  • Rely on self-disclosure and advice
  • Focus on removing obstacles of recovery and building recovery capital model core recovery competencies and maintain continuity of contact over time to support those needing recovery guidance and support. 

Uplift 4.0 aim to address inequities in the health of Native communities and in each experience; including attendance to cultural activities and events that help nurture a continued sense of Native identity for youth, trauma Informed activities that help create a sense of belonging for Native youth once emancipated from care, and programs that are personalized, culturally tailored and accessible. 

Amplifying survivor-healing, voices, and allowing American Indian foster youth to acquire, internalize and transmit the important emotional and psychological protective factors of culture, sovereignty and personal autonomy through:

  • Family Wellness Programming
  • Fitness Classes
  • Health Policy Advocacy
  • Network and Resource Sharing
  • Talking Circles, and Traditional Wellness Healing 
  • Multiple Pathways of Recovery
  • Referrals to partner organizations, Native Healers and Trauma Informed Care Providers 

A Radical Reconstruction of Integrative Healing and Lifestyle Approach means Assertion of personal - Autonomy, Honesty, Self-Acceptance, Forgiveness, Feeling and Love. 

Traditional teaching of Common Spirit - 4 Heart (Archetypes) - Warrior, Healer, Visionary, Teacher: In Native American tradition, health was more than just a physical state; it also depended on a persons inner harmony with the powers of nature. Infiltrating systemic racism means aligning powers! 

  • Inspires a strong regard for the honor of each-other - commitment 
  • Builds a sense of pride and a feeling of difference - enthusiasm
  • Increase enjoyment, morale, motivation

The fundamental beliefs and values that guide my thinking as a Recovery Coach are Innate or Natural Culture; Resilience; Spirituality, Child-rearing/Extended Family Age/Wisdom/Tradition-Respect for Nature; Nurture Time & Seasons |Generosity | Harmony | Patience | Autonomy  Respect. "4 Core -Scores" in the effort to transform urban behavioral health services into recovery-oriented systems of careRecognition -Self-Definition -Rebirth -Community.

-Increase enjoyment, morale and motivation. 

-Provides encouragement, reminders, safety, and strength to continue the process of change.

What is your theory of change?

With an emphasis on the use of self in the helping process via belief in power of “wounded healers” - the recognition that experiencing and overcoming an affliction can engender knowledge that can be used to help other similar afflicted. This calls for cooperation and synergy; science is not likely to become a significant addiction treatment until it moves beyond contributing to societies knowledge of addiction, towards a replicable technology of human transformation. A science of addiction will have little relevance until it is accompanied by a science of recovery and a science of prevention.

What is your approach to incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusivity into your work?

At the center of my work as a coach is the belief in the healing powers of connection to communities of recovery whose members are bound by experience, strength, and hope. A Radical Reconstruction of Integrative Healing and Lifestyle Approach: Assertion of personal - Autonomy, Honesty, Self-Acceptance, Forgiveness, Feeling and Love.

The transition from recovery initiation to lifelong recovery maintenance and healing integration is mediated by processes of social support. People with severe AOD problems are often deeply enmeshed in a culture of addiction that they require sustained help disengaging from this culture and entering an alternative culture of recovery. Sustained pre-treatment, in-treatment, and post-treatment recovery support services. 

Goffman describes stigma as a process of social shunning through which one’s personal identity and humanity are lost due to one’s membership in a socially discredited group. Unfavorable cultural traits culturally attributed to the discredited group forge a pervasive sense of shame and unworthiness and a sense of being imprisoned by stereotype and caricature. 

In Native American tradition, health was more than just a physical state; it also depended on a persons inner harmony with the powers of nature. Infiltrating systemic racism means aligning powers! 

Celebrating multiple pathways of recovery through survivor lived experiences, in-person wellness retreat, somatic experience, Trauma Informed Yoga, Social Emotional Learning, Language, Tradition and Story-telling that illuminates the pathways of integration, styles, stages, and strategies of long-term personal and family recovery. 

-Credentialed by experience rather than solely- formal education 

- Inclusive Recovery Coaching | 1:1 Training | Trauma Informed Care Access for Survivors of DV, Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking. (MMIWG2S) - Establish non-hierarchical or minimal hierarchy relationships based on mutuality of a shared experience

  • Rely on self-disclosure and advice
  • Focus on removing obstacles of recovery and building recovery capital model core recovery competencies and maintain continuity of contact over time to support those needing recovery guidance and support. 

When we talk about power and privilege, we talk in terms of race, ethnicity, gender and class. Developing a practice of paying attention to culture is one of the core competencies of healing. Stigma leads health care systems to withhold appropriate services. The impact of mental illness and stigma around mental illness can rob individuals of rightful life opportunities.
