Our ancestors are an important source of health and wellness as well as of trauma and dysfunction.  By recognizing that our connections and relationships to them continue into the present, we can address and resolve ways that past pains may be negatively impacting you, ways that ancestral strengths and gifts can help in the unfolding of your life and even how to help resolve legacies of trauma and hurt in practical, personally specific and meaningful ways.  Learning how to change your relationship with your ancestors can help in resolving grief and loss issues, identity issues, and is a powerful tool in undoing the negative effects of internalized oppression.
