Our Invitation

Ancestral healing plays out at the intersection of personal and cultural change. If you’ve been personally transformed through conscious relationship with your own ancestors – and you’re called to be of service to others – we encourage you to consider one of the only available trainings in culturally-mindful and psychologically grounded practices of ancestral healing.

Join us for this free session to learn more about our upcoming Ancestral Healing Practitioner Training – and how this program can benefit your own work and offerings to the world. You’ll hear from several international practitioners about their experience and growth in this program. This year, we will be welcoming our seventh cohort of trainees, with a regional focus for this cycle that centers folks of Asia and Oceania descent.

Sign up to join or to receive the recording afterward. See the training info page for further details on how to apply to the program.
