"Why Shamanism Now?" with Christina Pratt
Rituals for Personal and Family Healing with Daniel Foor
Your blood lineage ancestors, irrespective of religion, race, or culture, include the thousands of women and men whose lives weave a story back to the first human beings in Africa over 200,000 years ago. For many living today, your ancestors experienced violence, injustice, or oppression, very much like our reality though in the forms of their time. When we bring healing to these unresolved issues in a family line, the dead can finally rest in peace and the living can heal personally, within the family, and in the larger collective. This week author, psychologist, and ceremonialist, Daniel Foor, joins host, Christina Pratt, to discuss his new book, "Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing." Daniel shares how by reconciling with our ancestors "we make repairs in our personal psyches and family histories that, in turn, mend cracks in the larger spirit of humanity."
