Everyone has loving and wise ancestors, and by reaching out for their support we access tremendous vitality for personal and family healing. In addition to supporting repairs with living family, our ancestors encourage healthy self-esteem and help us to clarify our destiny, relationships, and work in the world.
Participants will be introduced to an inclusive, heart-centered framework for relating safely and directly with family ancestors, both helpful guides and the dead in need of assistance. We’ll also touch on the implications of ancestral work for cultural healing (e.g., sexism, racism, colonialism). The material presented will closely follow Daniel’s book Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing. Daniel will also be guiding a three-day immersion in ancestral healing, Fri-Sun, July 6-8 in Richmond. (Event Page here, Facebook Event Page here).

We acknowledge this event is taking place on the ancestral lands of Chickahominy, Pamunkey, and Powhatan peoples and we encourage participants to become educated on the history of the land and to support local Native organizations.
