Ancestral Medicine is a business based in the state of North Carolina. We’re committed to keeping our offerings accessible to people of varied economic means as well as to supporting the good works of others engaged in cultural healing and systemic change.
In 2020 our resources allowed for donations of $1,000 USD each to the following ten groups whose services reflect our core values, organizational priorities, and some locations where ancestral healing practitioners in our network are active. Four are U.S.-based and the others are respectively in Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, the U.K., and the E.U. Our intent in sharing below the 2020 recipients is to highlight their service, convey some something about our values, and encourage similar acts of giving.
