Welcome Message From Your Series Host

With Lisa Bonnice

Welcome to the Ancestral Healing Summit series. I’m Lisa Bonnice, your host, and I’m so glad you’ve decided to join us, because this year’s series is power-packed. This is our fourth year presenting this series, and the topic of ancestral healing has become more important than ever.
We’ll hear from some of our favorite experts and add some new ones to the mix, who will be here to share new perspectives that we may not have considered before. 
Thomas Hübl joins us again with Sandra Ingerman, Christina Lee Pratt, Langston Kahn, Natalia O’Sullivan, and others.
This year, though, you’ll hear from other Generational Pattern Shifters... as Heather Dane calls those of us who feel called by our ancestors to do this important work.

For example, we’ll hear from Jill Purce, a pioneer in ancestral healing and family constellations... and Paul Levy, who explains how what he calls “Wetiko” could be behind our most challenging family dysfunctions. We’ll also hear from Kelly Sullivan Walden, who’ll share with us how to communicate with our loving ancestors through our dreams.

We’ll also hear from Jordan Dresser, of the Northern Arapaho Tribal Historic Preservation Office, about his new film, Home from School: The Children of Carlisle, chronicling his tribe’s efforts to bring home the remains of three children who died in one of the infamous Indian boarding schools.

Dr. Mary McLaughlin shares fascinating tales of Irish keening, a lament for the ancestors... and Velma E. Love, PhD, explores the power of sharing stories to redefine painful narratives, such as those suffered by Africans forced into slavery in the U.S. 

Ash Canty talks about multidimensional healing with your ancestors, whether they are gay, straight, or non-binary... and Liza Miron shares with us the impact that terminated pregnancies, miscarriages, or stillbirths may have had on our grandmothers and, therefore, on us.

One important point brought up by a large number of our series speakers is the urgency of this work. The time is now. Those of us who are called to this work as Generational Pattern Shifters are participating in a crucial restructuring and repair of humanity’s system, which has been thrown out of whack over the years with one dysfunction building upon another, after another, after another.

So… if you are hearing the call, if you recognize that there are things that need to be set right in your family’s system — whether you know your birth family or not — you will learn a lot from the speakers in this series. 

I’m so looking forward to sharing these conversations with you. See you there.

Program Host at The Shift Network and Award-Winning Author

Lisa Bonnice is an award-winning writer and humorist. She received two excellence awards from during her tenure there as a news writer/associate producer. She also traveled the country as a stand-up comedienne, working with the likes of Tim Allen and Steve Harvey.

She has hosted numerous summits for The Shift Network, including the Ancestral Healing Summit, Beyond the Veil Summit, and Intuitive Medicine Summit. Lisa also co-created the “Generations Oracle” kit with Carrie Paris. 

Her first book, Shape Shifting: The Body/Mind/Spirit Weight Solution, includes a foreword by Neale Donald Walsch, with whom she worked within the organization he founded, Humanity's Team, as regional director for the entire southern portion of the United States. Her true crime novel, Fear of Our Father, was twice featured on the Investigation Discovery network. Her newest novel, a metaphysical comedy called The Poppet Master, includes a foreword by Marc Allen, publisher at New World Library (and the man who discovered Eckhart Tolle).

Lisa hosted her own podcast, Shape Shifting, on BlogTalkRadio, featuring such guests as Lynne McTaggart, Edgar Mitchell, and Neale Donald Walsch. She has been a program host with The Shift Network for over five years, where she has interviewed luminaries such as Gregg Braden, Anita Moorjani, and Thomas Hübl. She also hosted an online chat show, Mind Yourself, where she interviewed experts in human transformation.

Her current writing project, based on actual events found in her family tree, spurred Lisa into her almost obsessive interest in ancestral healing. While doing genealogy research, she discovered an ancient witch trial and generational curse, which explained an awful lot about unusual patterns and illnesses in her life and those of her family. This writing project, tentatively titled The Maxwell Curse, tells how ancestral legacies can ripple across time for centuries, leaving havoc in their wake. Lisa feels that it's her life's work to heal that curse by working with her ancestors, and sharing with others how they too can break the ties that bind them to their own families' past histories.
