The concept of ancestral wounding, something that has been alive in shamanic medicine for many years, is now coming to the fore through scientific advances and the study of epigenetic changes.
Trauma that is inherited can have a literal effect on the inner workings of the physical body on a cellular level, creating the potential for health problems later in life. Shamanic traditions give us access to the tools needed to heal these inter-generational traumas, thus changing the course of people's lives.
However, the need to heal our ancestors, or more importantly our connection to them, is something that can be observed in many modern phenomena beyond the individual and is affecting our societies in profound ways.
People displacement, lack of belonging, environmental degradation, the breakdown of communities and families, loss of meaning and spiritual connection, perpetual violence and abuse, all these things may have some roots in the ancestral legacies we carry.
This talk will examine both the potential issues of ancestral wounding and disconnection but also the necessary and practical steps we can take to heal these wounds, for the betterment of individuals and society.
