We are the expression of many generations of both suffering and bright blessings. Relating consciously with our personal ancestors encourages healing and empowerment for our lineages, families, and lives in the present moment.
Much of the suffering addressed by psychological healers stems from unhealed family and ancestral patterns. In this training, participants will learn tangible skills for helping others relate well with their ancestors. No prior experience or formal credentials needed.
This introductory training is open to all, and participants can expect to learn tangible skills for supporting others in work with both their loving and troubled family ancestors. This training draws on my experience as a marriage and family therapist, my doctoral research on the use of shamanic healing methods in clinical work, and my experience guiding others in ancestor work over the past decade.
