Helpers Mentoring Society is a social enterprise which delivers educational programs internationally to teach the cultural practices of indigenous peoples. These practices promote systemic thinking as a way of bringing us back into balance with ourselves, other people, and nature. We teach pathways to deep nature connection, community building and positive mental/emotional/spiritual/physical health.

Salvatore Gencarelle is the founder and current director of Helpers Mentoring Society, an international organization dedicated to supporting the revitalization of humanity’s relationship with hope and purpose, so that all life thrives.

Registration is Open For Sal's UK Visit

November 10th - 13th 2022 (Bedfordshire UK)

Sal is offering a number of teaching days and ceremonies throughout his brief stay in the UK.

Please register on the Helpers Mentoring website  -

Please register for each event or ceremony.

There are limited spaces in some cases, especially around ceremonies. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. When the capacity is reached, the registration offer will be removed.

To book a teaching day or ceremonial event, please select the event on the right side of this page, and register your participation, so we have a clear idea of numbers. You will need to register for each event separately, even if they are on the same day.

After registration, you will be sent details of where to go, when to be there, and what you need to bring.

(Please note that within the understanding of this lineage, women on their 'moon time' (menses) are considered to be in their own internal ceremonial process and that this requires its own designated space to be in this ceremony. During these single ceremonial events, this is, unfortunately, not possible to accommodate)

If you have any questions, please reach out at:

The days and evening events will all be self-catering/potluck events, so please read the emails that accompany each registration to be fully prepared. The end times for ceremony are approximate due to the nature of ceremony.

Where needed, we will be operating a covid secure process to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the day or event. This may include asking people to take a Covid rapid flow test on the day.
