Ancestral Lineage Healing

Everyone has wise & loving ancestors who are directly accessible and offer deep connection, guidance and healing. Relating with our ancestors provides greater understanding of the intergenerational blessings and burdens we carry, illuminates a sense of purpose and cultivates connection with spirit.  Generally, the ancestors are the collective dead of human history.  More specifically, ancestors are the well, elevated rather than troubled dead.  Working with our wise, well ancestors can support the troubled dead, shift the  vibration of the lineage and brighten the energetic influence of our ancestors on our lives.

I began working with healing my ancestral lineages with Daniel Foor of Ancestral Medicine in Oct of 2014 and was profoundly affected by the work.  In 2017, I completed the Ancestral Healing Practitioner Training with Daniel Foor and continue to work closely with him to deepen my practice of holding space for others individually and in group ritual.
