A practical guide to connecting with your ancestors for personal, family, and cultural healing

• Provides exercises and rituals to help you initiate contact with your ancestors, find ancestral guides, and assist the dead who are not yet at peace

• Explains how to safely engage in lineage repair work by connecting with your more ancient ancestors before relating with the recently deceased

• Explores how your ancestors can help you transform intergenerational legacies of pain and abuse and reclaim the positive spirit of the family

Everyone has loving and wise ancestors they can learn to invoke for support and healing. Coming into relationship with your ancestors empowers you to transform negative family patterns into blessings and encourages good health, self-esteem, clarity of purpose, and better relationships with your living relatives.

Offering a practical guide to understanding and navigating relationships with the spirits of those who have passed, Daniel Foor, Ph.D., details how to relate safely and effectively with your ancestors for personal, family, and cultural healing. He provides exercises and rituals, grounded in ancient wisdom traditions, to help you initiate contact with your ancestors, find supportive ancestral guides, cultivate forgiveness and gratitude, harmonize your bloodlines, and assist the dead who are not yet at peace. He explains how to safely engage in lineage repair work by connecting with your more ancient ancestors before relating with the recently deceased. He shows how, by working with spiritually vibrant ancestors, individuals and families can understand and transform intergenerational patterns of pain and abuse and reclaim the full blessings and gifts of their bloodlines. Ancestral repair work can also catalyze healing breakthroughs among living family members and help children and future generations to live free from ancestral burdens. The author provides detailed instructions for ways to honor the ancestors of a place, address dream visits from the dead, and work with ancestor shrines and altars. The author offers guidance on preparing for death, funeral rites, handling the body after death, and joining the ancestors. He also explains how ancestor work can help us to transform problems such as racism, sexism, homophobia, and religious persecution.

By learning the fundamentals of ancestor reverence and ritual, you will discover how to draw on the wisdom of supportive ancestral guides, heal family troubles, maintain connections with beloved family after their death, and better understand the complex and interconnected relationship between the living and the dead.

Despacho

The despacho is a ceremonial form shared by Quechua-speaking peoples of the Andes that can be adapted for various ritual intentions. This ancestor-focused despacho made in Nederland, Colorado, made use of aspen for kintus (leaves used to carry participants’ prayers).

West African Mediums

Known as egúngún in Yorùbá-speaking West Africa and neighboring cultures, ancestor mediums must be covered from head to toe. They provide one way for the dead to continue to relate in the affairs of the living.

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

The Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead combines pre-Christian traditions of ancestor reverence with the Catholic holiday of All Saint’s Day and may include establishing an ancestor altar, making offerings, and visiting the graves of loved ones.

Sedlec Ossuary

Sedlec Ossuary near the town of Kutná Hora, Czech Republic, houses the remains of forty thousand to seventy thousand people. Common where burial places are scarce, some ossuaries were established in Europe to address the many thousands of unidentified dead on the battlefields of World War I.
