Ancestral Wisdom

Ancestral lifeways wisdom explores our desire to reclaim our roots and our “Ancestral Mind”, an essential aspect to re-rooting ourselves and falling in love with the Earth again, to revere Earth’s natural elements, manifestations, and creatures as sacred, and to return to peaceful co-existence and respect for all life. 

Our ancestors lived in plant-based cultures and had many healing traditions. Plants and herbal medicines were woven into their daily lives. These traditions were a source of joy and sustenance as well as allies in healing.

Improve your relationship with Mother Earth by learning healing lore from times when plants spoke and we listened, and to learn to walk again in balance with the Earth. Understand how connecting to the Land is a portal to connecting to our Ancestors, and Ancestors of the Land we may live within, and the responsibility that comes with this.

Here you will find ideas, inspiration, and guides to help you to get in alignment with the earth’s seasons, cultivate the magical, healing potential of plants and herbs, honored your own intuitive abilities, and lived in synchronicity with the cycles of the moon and the life force. 

Ancestral Wisdom is knowledge, heuristics (guidelines, principles), and ways of being that make our lives better, more meaningful, purposeful, prosperous, and joyful—hidden in culture, traditions, stories, art, songs, and prayers.   

Ancestral Wisdom transmits support and advice from ancestors who, even though they passed on long ago, are still helping us today in subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, ways.
