Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone
A 7-Module On-Demand Video Training

Call on your ancestors to help you clear anxiety, depression, and stuckness passed down through generations for greater resilience and the freedom to live your soul’s purpose.


Take a few moments to reflect on the lives of your ancestors, and the kind of experiences they lived through over the generations…

… their adventures, accomplishments, life changes even the traumatic events they experienced...

How much do you really know about them?

And, are there things in your own life behaviors, physical health, emotional wellbeing, patterns, or experiences that seem like they may have been passed down from those who came before you?

Maybe you have a sense of heaviness as a result of something in the history of your family of origin a weight that keeps you stuck, anxious, uncertain, or lacking direction...

Did you know that the experiences of your ancestors, including the traumas they endured, can be passed on from generation to generation, leaving imprints on those who come after them including YOU.

And many of us carry our ancestors' traumas along with our own in our bodies, hearts, minds, and spirits... even if we’re not aware of it.

The unresolved traumas we hold can manifest as all manner of ailments, including depression, anxiety, somatic and physiological disorders, and more.

Ancestral trauma can also present as a disconnection from our life purpose, social and psycho-spiritual isolation, a feeling that we lack belonging, and alienation from our biological family.

Ultimately, historical trauma may be preventing you from healing, thriving, and living the life of your deepest desires.

It’s time to explore how the trauma you carry with you is impacting your life...

With compassionate guidance, your ancestors can help you release the historical trauma of your lineage, enabling you to contribute to the collective healing of our world.

When you learn how to enlist your well ancestors’ wisdom to release and free yourself of this historical trauma, you can increase your resilience and hear the calling of your soul’s purpose.

In this deeply transformative 7-step journey with author, Jungian psychotherapist, and founding rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh, Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone, you’ll discover a beautifully curated array of practices, processes, meditations, and body-mind connection techniques to help you identify your family’s trauma legacies.

You’ll recognize how your behavior, physical health, and emotional wellbeing have been affected by your own traumas and the traumas that your ancestors endured.

And, you’ll begin to clear and transform the resulting reverberations so you can live a more peaceful and beautiful life.


During this intimate journey, you’ll:

  • Discover how to identify your family’s trauma legacies, and how your behavior, physical health, and emotional wellbeing have been affected by your own and intergenerational trauma
  • Understand what intergenerational healing has to do with your soul’s journey
  • Learn the 7 principles of ancestral trauma healing
  • Begin to understand how trauma works, with compassion and without judgement

And, you’ll discover tools to help you meet your soul chain a pod of souls who’ve intentionally decided to be here at this time and place to effect a particular change on the planet.

What makes Tirzah’s approach so effective is the multidisciplinary, experiential tools she draws on to support your transformation.

You’ll work with your dreams and Jungian psychology... create Genograms, which are "maps" to discover and track the patterns in your inherited legacy... delve deep into the seven principles of ancestral trauma healing... and explore the neuroscientific research around intergenerational trauma.

You’ll engage in practices of Active Imagination... meditations rooted in the ancient teaching of the Kabbalah... Heart Coherence processes... and journaling...

... all of which were designed to open your heart, find forgiveness for yourself and others, and lead from a place of compassion and sovereignty.

You’ll experience a felt sense that you can survive and transmute extreme trauma, let go of the victim mentality, and emerge radically empowered.

What People Are Saying About Tirzah Firestone...

“... forging a uniquely spiritual voice that heals and lifts our souls.”

An explosion of suffering, death, and trauma has overtaken humanity during the past century and shows no signs of abating. Rabbi Tirzah Firestone speaks on every page of this deeply moving book with her heart and mind and from the deepest wellsprings of Jewish tradition to find sources of solace to transform wounds into wisdom. Her book spills over with empathy and compassion, forging a uniquely spiritual voice that heals and lifts our souls.
Susannah Heschel, Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies, Dartmouth College

“... Firestone makes me think in a broader way, as she will you.”

Tirzah Firestone is a compelling and genuinely fresh voice, revealing over and over again “resonant truths that hold meaning for today.” I am moved by this book. And even when I disagree with her, Firestone makes me think in a broader way, as she will you.
― Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, Author of Jewish Literacy and Jewish Wisdom

“... a journey of awakening and healing...”

If we are ever to transform conflict and bring peace to this wounded world, we will need to understand and address collective and intergenerational trauma. In this illuminating and inspiring book, Rabbi Tirzah Firestone interweaves deeply touching personal stories, including her own, with keen psychological insights to guide us on a journey of awakening and healing our traumas. Highly recommended!
― William Ury, Co-author of Getting to Yesa nd author of Getting to Yes with Yourself

“... a shimmering shawl of healing.”

Wounds into Wisdom is a tour de force! Rabbi Firestone has woven together threads of truth about trauma that include her own family’s life experience of trauma inherited from the Holocaust, the new science of the inherited effects of trauma on genetic material and on the brain, studies of the social impact of traumatic events on large groups of people, and the mystical traditions of Kabbalah about the wounded human soul. She has woven these threads into a shimmering shawl of healing.
― Rabbi Arthur Waskow, Director of The Shalom Center and author of Godwrestling ― Round 2

“... teaches us how to listen, to ourselves and to others.”

One of the important points [Tirzah Firestone] makes... drawing on the new science of epigenetics, is that trauma and its [effects] are felt not only by those who directly experience trauma, but are passed on to their children and grandchildren. Rabbi Firestone teaches us how to listen, to ourselves and to others. Her book should be read by everyone who wishes personal healing and the healing of this traumatized world.

About Tirzah Firestone


Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone, PhD, is an author, Jungian psychotherapist, and founding rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh in Boulder, Colorado. Ordained by Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi in 1992, she is a leader in the international Jewish Renewal Movement and a renowned Jewish scholar and teacher.

Raised in an Orthodox home in St. Louis, Missouri, Tirzah’s spiritual curiosity called her to search beyond the confines of her family’s strict Jewish upbringing. She left home to embark on a life-changing spiritual odyssey, chronicled in With Roots In Heaven: One Woman’s Passionate Journey into the Heart of Her Faith.

Tirzah’s passion to share an inclusive and joyous Judaism, as well as her dedication to human rights, led her to serve as a leader in the international movement for Jewish Renewal.

Tirzah earned a doctorate in depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California in 2015. Her leading-edge research on the impact and healing of collective trauma draws on the fields of neuroscience, psychology, Jewish literature, and mythopoesis. And her groundbreaking work, Wounds Into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Trauma, employs interviews, case studies, and her own autobiographical narratives to demonstrate how trauma residue passes from generation to generation and how it can be transformed.

Now Rabbi Emerita of her congregation, Tirzah maintains a private practice in depth psychology, and teaches nationally about modern applications of ancient wisdom and ancestral healing: how to transform patterns of suffering from our past and bring forth clarity, wisdom, and blessings for ourselves and those who come after us.

Tirzah lives in the foothills of Colorado with her husband David. Their grown children live around the country.
