2021 Catalyst, Issue 3 – Ancestral Healing Summit & Black History Month

Shift Network Update

By Lisa Bonnice, host of the Ancestral Healing Summit

Hi. I’m Lisa Bonnice, your host for The Shift Network’s third annual Ancestral Healing Summit, a free online event from February 22-26. Interest in ancestral healing has grown so much over the years that we’re always finding more experts with powerful wisdom ready to be tapped. In fact, it’s such an expansive and diverse topic that it takes five days and over three dozen speakers to even begin such a huge conversation.

In addition to discussions with some of our favorite speakers like Sandra Ingerman, Robert Moss, Jane Burns, Christina Pratt, Suzanne Giesemann, and Eileen McKusick — to name just a few — we added several new voices this year, sharing their family histories and how discovering their stories of origin opened their minds to vast new possibilities into who they really are beneath who they’ve been told they are.

You can register for free here.

We explore this topic through science, psychology, and spirituality, and even through genealogy and film-making. Jordan Dresser, chairman of the Northern Arapaho Business Council, talks about his documentary What Was Ours, which addresses the repatriation of tribal artifacts and the peace these efforts brought to him and his community. David Quint, director of the film Father Unknown, shares the story of healing brought about by discovering the name of the unknown grandfather who left his son (David's father) to be raised in a Swiss orphanage.

We’ll also hear personal stories from Joycelyn Davis, descended from a survivor of the last illegal slave trading ship, and from Karena Virginia, whose family pattern of being silenced was addressed when she spoke out publicly against Donald Trump with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior. Stephanie Bowie talks about her search for meaning after discovering that an ancestor’s public lynching was the inspiration for the famous Billie Holiday song, Strange Fruit.

And, of course, we’ll dive into discussions about how to connect and communicate with your well ancestors, to not only heal traumas but also to awaken long-dormant gifts. Mark Anthony tells us about “frequency beacons” and the art of psychometry — feeling into inanimate objects for their owners’ stories. Carrie Paris talks about divination and the use of oracles. In fact, I even offer my two cents about how my ancestral healing work has allowed me to rediscover my own natural “magic.”

There are far too many juicy sessions to mention in this brief welcome letter. I couldn’t possibly do them justice to only offer a brief nod here. You can see for yourself when you register for the event and check out the power-packed lineup of speakers for this year’s Summit. I promise, you’ll be glad that you did. And, it really is free to watch while the Summit is live

I do hope you’ll join us for the Ancestral Healing Summit, a FREE online event from February 22-26. I’ll see you there!

NOTE: “The Master Key” by Robert Peng, a featured speaker in The Shift Network’s 2020 Energy Medicine & Healing Summit, is one of the most profoundly important books I’ve ever read. I can say that it’s life-changing with complete confidence, because it changed my life before I even finished reading it. I was so impressed with this book that we are serializing the section called “One Hundred Days of Darkness and Light” in future issues of Catalyst. You can read the thirtieth installment (as well as the previous ones) here.
— Phil Bolsta

 


The uplifting story in this issue’s “ The Nicest Thing ” section come from summit speakers Cyndi Dale, Suzanne Giesemann, Robert Moss, EIleen McKusick, and Bernadette Pleasant...

... plus a powerful and profound personal story from bestselling author Anne Lamott, whose books include her latest, Dusk, Night, Dawn: On Revival and Courage, and Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life.


Finally, we’d love to hear your answer to the question, In what ways do you feel connected to your ancestors? To share your thoughts in our Facebook Page community, click here.


There are four things our ancestors need from us: acknowledgment, validation, understanding, and forgiveness.

A Personal Invitation to the February 22-26 Ancestral Healing Summit From Your Host, Lisa Bonnice

 

Hi. I’m Lisa Bonnice, and I’m honored to, once again, host The Shift Network’s Ancestral Healing Summit for the third year in a row, where we continue to explore the mysteries of how events that happened centuries ago to our ancestors are still reverberating in our lives today.

It’s not just ancestors in our personal lineages, those we find in our family trees if we’re inclined to ancestry research. It’s not just an endless line of grandparents who affect us. It’s also our global ancestors because, after all, we are all interrelated and interconnected. Events that occurred on a global scale, even generations ago, are still rippling across time, informing the way we look at the world and react to one another.

The Master Key
By Robert Peng, a featured speaker in The Shift Network’s 2020 Energy Medicine & Healing Summit

It’s 1972 in the industrial city of Xiangtan, China. A frail child with a heart condition sneaks into a hotel boiler room and befriends the elderly yet vibrant attendant, who eventually reveals his true identity as a revered Qigong master. He heals the boy and, for the next 13 years, secretly teaches him the keys to unlocking the spiritual and healing dimensions of the Life Force.

It sounds like a modern-day fable, but the story is true. And with The Master Key, that grateful student, Robert Peng, invites all of us to enter the next chapter of this empowering path. Here, Master Peng brings together the unique insights of his teacher with the moving account of his own journey.

Click here to read the thirtieth installment (as well as all the previous installments) of this profoundly moving book.

The Nicest Thing

In this special video series, prominent authors, thought leaders, and others answer the question, “ What is the nicest thing a non-family member has ever done for you?

Anne Lamott’s Story
Bestselling author

EXCERPT: When I got sober at 32, I wrote a letter of amends, an apology from really the depths of my soul. And she responded really beautifully. And then, a couple of years ago, I was doing a writing conference at a big bookstore and she came to it. I hadn’t seen her in all these years.

To watch the video and read the transcript of Anne’s 1-minute story about a profound act of forgiveness, click here.

Cyndi Dale’s story
Mystic, medium, and author, and a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

EXCERPT: And so I decided that I wanted to die. I decided I was done. I decided I was going to leave. And so I told my parents, “I’m going to die.” And they looked at me like they did with many of the phrases that I would utter. And they said, "Whatever," and between themselves said, "Isn’t she imaginative?" And I woke up the next morning really, really ill. I had the flu, I had a fever. I was very sick.

Suzanne Giesemann’s story
Mystic, medium, and author, and a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

EXCERPT: We ended up getting off a ferry in Croatia for the final leg of the trip. We needed a taxi or we needed a bus and basically we were dumped out in this parking lot and there was nobody around but this tow truck. We had to get back to our boat. We didn’t speak the language. We were exhausted. We were numb from the grief. I looked over at this tow truck and I said to my husband Ty, “Well, that’s our only hope right there.”

To watch the video and read the transcript of Suzanne’s harrowing 11-minute story about tragic loss and finding some measure of healing in a vacant parking lot in Croatia, click here.

Robert Moss’ story
Creator of Active Dreaming, and a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

EXCERPT: I was busy, as usual, traveling and teaching a lot around the world, and my book deadline was two weeks away. Although I write fast, two weeks isn’t very long to write a book when you actually haven’t knuckled down and done any of it as a draft up to that point. A friend of mind in Europe sent me a message and said, "How’s the book coming along?" I said, "Well, I don’t really know what to say. The deadline’s in two weeks. It’s all with me in a sense, but I haven’t put anything really on paper, yet." She said, "Okay. Maybe this dream will help you, Robert. I want to give you a dream. It’s a dream about you."

To watch the video and read the transcript of Robert’s fascinating 4-minute story, click here.

Eileen McKusick’s story
Founder of Biofield Tuning, and a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

EXCERPT: When we moved to Vermont in 2002, my kids were little, they were two and five, and we had gone through a very devastating experience where my husband had been in a car accident. He was hit by a drunk driver, and he wasn’t able to work for a few years, and this combined with some other things caused us to lose everything. We went into a complete and utter financial meltdown.

Bernadette Pleasant’s story
Creator of Femme!, a mind-body wellness program, and a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

EXCERPT: I wasn’t sleeping, I wasn’t eating, I was stressed out, I’d left my husband. I can recall getting a phone call from my boss. I didn’t quite understand the phone call and why he was calling me. He says, "Bernadette, where have you been?" I recall looking at the phone, thinking, What are you talking about? He says, "Are you okay?" "Sure, I’m okay." I have all this question in my voice, because I don’t understand why he’s calling me. And he says, "Bernadette, it’s Thursday. You haven’t been to work all week. You haven’t called in. I don’t understand."

Black History Month

February Is Black History Month

A note from Gillian Shelley, Inclusion Program Coordinator for The Shift Network:

I felt uncomfortable writing a piece on White Abolitionists during Black History Month. After learning more, I accept the inner conflict that can arise though being a white person striving to heal internalized and systemic racism. Remembering the lives of White Abolitionists has me feeling empowered. I’ve only learned about white people in the context of slavery as owning enslaved people, never as allies on the Underground Railroad.

An empowering message from Shift contributor Mutima Imani:

In 2020 between May 25 and June 10, when people all over the world were out in the streets shouting “Black Lives Matter,” “I Can’t Breathe,” and “Enough is Enough,” you did your part. You marched and donated money to a Black organization, you wrote a statement of solidarity, and even hired a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant.

Maybe you talked to your Black neighbors for the first time, invited them over for tea, said you were sorry to these members of the global majority for not understanding how hard it can be for them to show up in white spaces and be treated with disrespect.

Interracial Marriage: What is “Loving Day” & “Loving in America”
By N'dea Yancey-Bragg for USA TODAY
June 12 is Loving Day, a celebration marking the day the Supreme Court struck down state bans against interracial marriage. The day is named for the monumental case, Loving v. Virginia, and the interracial couple at its center, Richard and Mildred Loving. The 1967 Supreme Court decision struck down 16 state bans on interracial marriage as unconstitutional.

Healing Ancestral Trauma to Heal Our Democracies
By Resmaa Menakem and Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

The roaring masses who barreled into the Capitol flaunted symbols and regalia common to the scenes of crimes we suffered for generations: Confederate flags, nooses and gallows, white power hand signals, insignias proclaiming 6MWE (an acronym for “Six Million Wasn’t Enough”), and a sweatshirt emblazoned with “Camp Auschwitz.”

These were references to history, but they were also overt signs of racialized and religionized trauma that have festered inside American bodies for more than four centuries. These unhealed wounds have been passed down, from body to body, from generation to generation. To read more, click here.

 

Voices of Our Ancestors: Their Physical and Subtle Legacies
By Cyndi Dale, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

During the initial COVID-19 lockdown, I caught myself acting as compulsively as it seemed nearly everyone else was. If there was a spare package of toilet paper to be found, I’d find it. Only satisfied when I’d pretty darn-near filled my utility room with sundry toilet paper rolls, I turned to other necessities, like cans of beans. I figured if everything went south, even the dogs could survive on bean chili. After a couple weeks of paranoia, I stopped myself. Why was I acting this way? It wasn’t like we were re-entering the Great Depression — or maybe... To read more, click here.

 
 

Unfinished Business: Healing Hearts Across Dimensions
By Suzanne Giesemann, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

Interactions with those closest to us can be challenging when they’re out in the open, but unresolved issues can fester for years, if not lifetimes. These can cover the spectrum from hurt feelings or broken hearts to loving words or praise left unsaid when a loved one passes. Guilt and regret can feel like a stone on the chest adding to the grief for those left behind.

Often, when people consult with a medium, they tend to think only in terms of their personal opportunity to say things they didn’t say before their loved one’s transition. What many don’t realize is that a medium serves an equally important role as a mouthpiece for those who no longer have a physical voice. The eagerness to enjoy clear communication extends to both sides of the veil. To read more, click here.

 

400 Years: Beyond Anti-Racism — the Embodiment of Ancestral Healing
By Bernadette Pleasant, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

This work is like having a meal. Honoring a process of unlearning a centuries-old reality of racism can’t be treated like grabbing fast food on the run. When a table is set and a healthy meal is prepared and served well while sitting together at a table, it has a way of calming the nervous system and leading to proper digestion.

My ancestors were calling me to set that table and serve that meal. So, I created a program called 400 Years: Unlearning Racism Through the Body, Storytelling and Deep Listening. My ancestors had learned to communicate just by looking at each other; by gesturing, by symbolism. It was an unspoken communication, private and silent because it had to be. They had to be silent; but now I was being called to be silent no more/ To read more, click here.

 

I’m Not *That* Bad! Are You?
By Lisa Bonnice, host of the Ancestral Healing Summit

Dig this: I’m not a bad enough person to feel as bad as I once did. While I’m not perfect, I’ve never caused enough harm to deserve the levels of guilt and anxiety I’ve dealt with most of my life. In order to feel this much guilt and fear of punishment, I would have had to commit a heinous crime. Guess what... not guilty.

So where do these unwanted feelings of unwarranted unworthiness come from? Societal conditioning? Brain washing by Madison Avenue and/or the Illuminati? Past life karma? Or, it could come from ancestral trauma.

Releasing Ancestral Karma
By Robert Moss, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

She stands before the fire, straight and tall as a flame, her fierce green eyes blazing. Irene stoops for a moment to make an offering to the fire, a pinch of tobacco, a sprig of sage. Then she carefully unfolds the first piece of paper. She reads aloud the following statement she has written: “I give to the fire all deep, encrusted feelings of powerlessness that drove my ancestors, our beloved men, into alcohol dependency.”

She consigns the paper to the fire, and the fire takes it hungrily. She unfolds the second message and reads it in a clear, ringing voice so that even the people on the edge of the circle can hear her without leaning in. To read more, click here.

Wounds into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma
By Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, a featured speaker in the Ancestral Healing Summit

Our past does not simply disappear. The painful history of our ancestors and their rich cultural wisdom intertwine within us to create the patterns of our future. Even when past trauma remains unspoken or has long been forgotten, it becomes part of us and our children ― a legacy of both strength and woundedness that shapes our lives. Tirzah Firestone brings to life the profound impact of protracted historical trauma through the compelling narratives of Israeli terror victims, Holocaust survivors, and those whose lives were marred by racial persecution and displacement. Seven principles emerge from these wise narratives ― powerful prescriptive tools that speak to anyone dealing with the effects of past injury. Click here to order your copy.


 


My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies
By Resmaa Menakem

Therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology. The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. Menakem argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies. Our collective agony doesn’t just affect African Americans. White Americans suffer their own secondary trauma as well. So do blue Americans — our police. This book is a call to action for all of us to recognize that racism is not only about the head, but about the body, and introduces an alternative view of what we can do to grow beyond our entrenched racialized divide.
