Liberating Radical Joy Through Ancestral Healing

Broadcast on January 31, 2023
With Langston Kahn
Hosted by Vanessa Gonzalez Codorniu

Ancestral healing practices are often viewed as painful and burdensome work that we are obligated to do over generations. However, when approached skillfully, ancestral healing can be an immense source of joy and freedom that reverberates out from the root of who we are to improve every facet of our lives. Join ancestral healing practitioner Langston Kahn in a discussion of how we can support our ancestors in being the source of blessing, vitality, and love they are meant to be.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Concrete examples of how ancestral connection and healing increase your capacity to experience joy
  • Common myths about ancestral healing that hinder your ability to create supportive relationships with your ancestors
  • An experiential ancestral meditation for accessing radical joy
The views expressed are specific to the author/speaker and may vary from the perspectives of The Shift Network's participants, staff, or other speakers.
