Ancestral Healing

The intention of this work is to support you in connecting with your wise and loving ancestors and to collaborate with them in bringing healing to your lineages. The Ancestral Lineage Repair framework is a non-dogmatic and culturally inclusive approach to cultivating direct relationship with one’s blood and bone people towards greater personal, familial and cultural wellness. The benefits of ancestral healing are manifold, including guidance with life path, transforming toxic intergenerational patterns, support through transitions and learning to embody and anchor ancestral blessings in one’s body and life.

We are all structurally connected to the one’s who have come before us and are thus in relationship with them. Whether we are aware of it or not, our ancestral relationships can have impact on our lives in all kinds of ways. So much more becomes possible when we choose to engage consciously with our ancestors and to foster mutually supportive relational pathways.

I have trained in the ancestral healing method developed by Dr. Daniel Foor, which is a client-centered approach that emphasizes ritual safety and the intersection of personal healing/liberation with collective healing/liberation. While I will be holding you and guiding you throughout the process, it is you, the client and your ancestors who are doing the actual work. 

The Ancestral Lineage Repair model is built on four assumptions that inform the process:

Consciousness continues after death. The ones we talk of as ancestors are an extension of that consciousness.

Not all of the dead are equally well. Just like the living, the ancestors exist on a spectrum of wellness and energetic coherence (no judgment here). Dying does not automatically make someone wise and loving (and some people totally become all awake and wise after dying), it just means the person is not incarnate anymore.

The dead can change. Often more quickly than the living. The ancestors are not stagnant or theoretical. They exist in the present. Allow for the possibility that the dead can change, heal and transform.   

The living and the dead can communicate. This isn’t an especially spiritual or magical orientation. In fact, it is quite old, ordinary and natural for humans to orient this way. The pervasive amnesia about the mutual impact between the living and the dead is one of the rippling consequences of colonization, displacement from land and the many intersecting cultural toxins that we are downstream from.

There is substantial impact between the living and the dead. We influence one another. The living are a structural extension of the ancestors. We don’t get to opt out of the reality of this impact. The question is how conscious we choose to make the relationship.

If you are a new client, I recommend starting with three sessions over one month to really give the work a chance and set a foundation. For your first session, please select “Ancestral Lineage Healing - First Session” to book an initial 1.5 hour session. For on-going clients you can choose 1 or 1.5 hrs, based on your preference. If you have any questions, please book a complimentary consult to discuss working together.
