The origin story of every culture contains a description of animism; humans in direct relationship with the land and, through the reciprocity of that connection, evolving together. The livelihood of humans and Nature is intertwined. If one ails, so does the other. History is littered with stories of losing that connection, and the toll this takes in the form of humans against each other, humans against Nature. Between colonization, conscription into the Church, imperialization, and industrialization, we have created systems of destruction that have decimated our relationship to the land, and to each other. From within these systems institutionalized racism, sexism, and all aspects of 'othering' became embedded in our political and social structures. As modern pagans, we recognize the need to tear down these structures and build supportive, inclusive new ones. Our spiritual paths are Nature-based and Ancestor-honoring, the rituals of which heal land wounds and ancestral trauma, to create sacred recovery and activism for all. This anthology presents modern pagan activists working through their spiritual lines to do better. Edited by Trevor Greenfield, publisher of Moon Books and editor of Naming the Goddess, with contributory essays from eleven pagan voices.
“In an era when the ancestors have been ignored, even abandoned, for a millennium or more in the “civilized’ western world, it takes a great deal of work to move toward them again, to help them heal and, in the process, to heal ourselves. This anthology offers eleven perspectives on ancestral healing, from the why's to the how-to’s, encompassing blood ancestors, ancestors of spirit, and even ancestral animals. This is a timely work, sharing with the reader the contributors’ passion for honoring those who have gone before. It is my fervent hope that their words will inspire more people to work toward ancestral healing.” - Laura Perry, editor of Deathwalking: Helping Them Cross the Bridge and author of Ariadne's Thread: Awakening the Wonders of the Ancient Minoans in Our Modern Lives.
“It is becoming increasingly recognised that when a traumatic event is experienced the effects of it, the post traumatic stress if you will, is still being carried many generations later. Therefore one of the most powerful things we can do for ourself and for future generations, is to carry out ancestral healing in some form. Knowing how to go about this can be difficult to discover but in this inspiring and much needed anthology eleven authors share their perspectives on ancestral healing, including dealing with difficult or problem ancestors, and why it is so important for us and for our world to learn how to work with our ancestors whoever they may be.” - Yvonne Ryves, author of Shaman Pathways: Web of Life.
