About the Event

Our Invitation

What is unresolved persists. The dead are not dead, not truly. They speak through our institutions, families, bodies, and psyches. The ancestors, for better and for worse, are tenacious and profoundly influential. In this live two-hour teaching Daniel Foor, founder of the Ancestral Lineage Healing method, will share teachings and practices for ancestral healing and reconnection. We’ll address the risks of engaging with the dead, and the role of ancestral healing in work for psychological, family, and cultural change. Daniel will be joined by ritualists in the Ancestral Medicine Practitioner Network with in-depth skills in mental health, grief work, IFS, shamanic healing, women’s circles, and more. Expect time for questions and for experiential, guided practice to connect with ancestral support.As we will be gathering on occupied lands, any attendees of Cherokee heritage/ancestries are warmly welcome at no cost. Likewise for anyone who is not Cherokee but who is engaged in sustained service work with the Cherokee Nation.
