star with star copper

Heal your family history and reconnect with your roots. Move forward with grounded, healthy pride.

Assisting the souls of the deceased can help transform intergenerational burdens into potent blessings and clear the way for our eventual transition to the next reality. Loving ancestors also support us in fulfilling our destiny, and can bring about more successful outcomes in our efforts toward cultural healing.

This interactive 12-week course expands on the teachings in Daniel’s book Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing. Lessons emphasize psychological, cultural, and energetic safety and provide a solid framework for sustained ancestral engagement. The experiential practices—both live and pre-recorded—support relating directly with your ancestors for personal and family healing.
