Ancestral Lineage Healing
As I’ve worked to decolonize myself and the healing work I do with others, the role of the ancestors has become central to helping to transform and interrupt patterns of multi-generational trauma, un-resolved grief, and the relational and cultural disconnection many feel.
Ancestral Lineage Healing is a non-dogmatic healing arts modality. The approach is based upon an animist framework which means that humans are part of a larger web of consciousness that includes our ancestors. Ancestral Lineage Healing was developed by Dr. Daniel Foor who also founded Ancestral Medicine (Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing, 2017).
There are 4 basic assumptions that underpin Ancestral Lineage Healing:
- Consciousness continues after death.
- Not all of the dead are equally well.
- The living and the dead can communicate.
- The living and the dead can strongly affect one another.
Ancestral Lineage Healing does not take the place of psychotherapy (if needed). Currently, I am offering Ancestral Lineage Healing outside of my roles as a Psychologist and psychotherapist although I bring these professional skills and experiences to my work with clients.
Thank you! Dr. Orson Morrison
