Founding Rabbi of Congregation Nevei Kodesh
Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone

New 9-Module Live Video Training Starts
Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Includes 7-Module Introductory Program!


Embark on an experiential journey to heal your ancestral legacies, discover untapped vitality and spiritual resources — and quiet the turbulent outside world to connect with your sacred purpose.


Each of us holds tremendous power to change not only the trajectory of our own life — but the collective experience of our larger world, even during these times of uncertainty.

Once you understand your own trauma history and the challenging historical patterns your ancestors engendered, you begin a journey that releases enormous healing potential that can benefit you and many others.

Untying trauma knots in your personal and ancestral history sets you free — and energizes you to become more powerful and compassionate as you create a future aligned with your soul’s purpose.

Join Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone on a new 9-module journey into the healing of your ancestral legacies — and discover untapped spiritual resources as you dismantle personal and intergenerational trauma patterns, so you and your lineage can reach your fullest, most radiant expression.

Tirzah will lead you through guided meditations, embodied exercises, and small-group conversations to support the ancestral healing work you’ll do together.

This transformative new course also includes two sacred ritual practicum sessions to take you deeper into ceremonial ancestral healing work.

You’ll delve into a rich synthesis of teachings from the fields of depth psychology, neuroscience, and Kabbalistic and mystic wisdom — and benefit from Tirzah’s wisdom as a Jungian psychotherapist and spiritual elder.

As you’ll discover, each of us comes into this world with specific tasks — sacred repair work that’s deeply connected to the wounds and challenges that have befallen us and our bloodlines.

When you explore and heal these wounds, you can better accomplish your sacred work — honoring your soul’s calling, deciphering your soul’s unique code, and becoming all that you’re meant to be.

And once you’re equipped with the wisdom of your ancestors, spiritual guides, and allies, you’ll be able to see your life from an expanded perspective — complete with the hope, courage, resilience, and compassion you need to better navigate your life and bring healing to our world.


During this 9-module journey with Rabbi Tirzah, you’ll discover:

  • Insights into your ancestral history — which may be affecting you more strongly in these challenging times — and how you can access the ancestral plane to help you move forward
  • Usable practices to build your sacred space and empower your body, mind, and spirit
  • How to view family trauma patterns in their historical context — and move past the control they have over you
  • How trauma residue patterns of fear, shame, greed, hypervigilance, and spiritual resistance are passed down through families — and show up in larger societal patterns in the world (including racism, colonization, and patriarchal oppression of women)
  • 2 ritual practicum sessions to take you deeper into ceremonial and ritual work
  • Ways to delve into your genogram (intergenerational family map) to study family ruptures and pathologies — and uncover resources, positive allies, and encouragement for your life today
  • Meditations to access the ancestral plane and create relationships with your loving guides and ancestors
  • Skills to deepen your connection to wise guidance — and steer clear of negative influences
  • The potent transformational fields that Kabbalah and Tibetan mysticism bring to ancestral healing
  • Ancient mythic stories to help you align with your sacred purpose and effectuate change in the world
  • The powerful truth that you were born with a sacred purpose — and how to quiet the turbulent world so you can connect with it
  • How your ancestors’ life experiences and wisdom can help you survive — and even thrive — in chaotic times like ours

What You’ll Discover in These 9 Modules

In this 9-module transformational intensive, Tirzah will guide you to deepen your understanding of your ancestral trauma legacies — to gain clarity, courage, compassion, and access to your authentic Self.

Personal and Collective Transformation for All Levels of Expertise

This 9-module course — which takes place over 7 weeks — is for anyone seeking an experiential understanding of their trauma legacies and how to transform them.

Community leaders, teachers, therapists, spiritual practitioners, and other professionals can augment their work by bringing these intergenerational healing modalities into their clinical and organizational practices.

The Power of Live Streaming Video


You’ll connect with Tirzah and experience her teachings through live streaming video. This connection will be easy to use and will enhance the impact of Tirzah’s wisdom. Or you can easily connect just via audio if you choose — through your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop.

(Can’t make it live? No worries! After each class, the video and audio recordings will be available for you to download or stream in high-quality format at your convenience.)

Seven Course Sessions and Two Ritual Practicums

Tirzah will be guiding you through seven course sessions and two ritual practicums over seven weeks. Mark your calendar and join us for each session.

The course sessions are on Wednesdays: August 5, August 12, August 19, August 26, September 2, September 9, and September 16.

The Ritual Practicums are on Monday, August 24 and Tuesday, September 8.

The course sessions and the practicums all begin at 4:00pm Pacific.

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, and experiential practices with Tirzah. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to deepen your ancestral healing.

If you have not experienced Tirzah’s work before, you’re welcome to sign up for this intensive training and we will bundle in her 7-module introductory course,  Find Healing & Resilience in Ancestral Wisdom, for you — which you can do before, or in parallel with, this more advanced program. This extra training is described below and is included in your registration.

Module 1: Clarifying Your Soul’s Journey to Empower Your Work in the World (August 5)


How can you become better aligned with your soul’s sacred purpose?

In this opening week, Tirzah will set the foundation for your journey together. She’ll open with a welcome to your new global community, an invocation, and an overview of the course.

She’ll share the many reasons why ancestral healing is so critical now — to your own wellbeing and the planet’s.

And she’ll guide you to begin thinking through powerful inquiries — including how your soul’s journey corresponds to the unfolding global events, how your family’s unhealed legacies are obscuring your path (and what you can do about it), and much more.

In this session, you’ll explore:

  • A brief reading from Tirzah’s Wounds Into Wisdom book, setting the stage for the alchemical work of transforming your dark and dense legacies into compassion, strength, and healing
  • A review of Plato’s parable of the acorn and the oak tree — and why it’s foundational to both the Kabbalah and C.G. Jung’s axiom that “the privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are”
  • What you’ll need to know to enter the imaginal realm as a bridge to the unconscious — and how it can help you access guidance and interact with well and wise ancestors and spiritual allies
  • Powerful tools for self-regulation and self-compassion — including 4 affirmations, the Butterfly Hug, and the Hawaiian Waterfall
  • Creating your own sacred space to deepen your spiritual work, begin life mapping, and calling in your ancestral allies
  • A guided meditation, What Our Souls Know, to help you understand your choice to enter the world at this time and through your particular bloodlines with all their unique challenges and resources

Module 2: Healing Our Personal Family to Heal the Human Family (August 12)


What are the residues that trauma leaves behind, and how do they get passed on to new generations — affecting entire ethnicities and collective society?

This week, you’ll explore how to wake up to these unconscious influences and find freedom, compassion, and healing power for yourself and the world.

Tirzah will guide you to think through your trauma history as a continuance of ancestral patterns... and show you how you can stop what she calls the trauma train.

We all came into this world to help effect changes and innovations in the collective consciousness of the planet. As you’ll discover, knowledge is power — and bringing unconscious patterns into the light of awareness and compassion can liberate your life.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • Hallmarks of individual and collective trauma — with an eye to your own bloodlines and the larger societal patterns at work in the world (for example, racism, colonization, patriarchal oppression of women and the feminine principle)
  • Ways to delve into your genograms (intergenerational family maps) to study their ruptures — and uncover resources, positive allies, and encouragement for your situation today
  • How to explore exactly what your family lived through — for instance, were they colonizers or colonized, upwardly mobile or just surviving?
  • Ways to outline your personal issues — mental loops, compulsive behaviors, relationship issues, and more — and view them in the context of ancestral (genetic/epigenetic) legacies
  • A practice to invoke and connect with your wise and well ancestral guides in your sacred ritual space — and tools to help you sit in their presence and open to their guidance
  • A guided meditation, We Meet Again, to open channels to members of your soul-pod and deepen rapport with your wise, well ancestral and spirit guides to hear their guidance and receive their protection

Module 3: Facing Our Family Shadows (August 19)


How do your personal anxieties, fears, and life issues have roots in your family’s history?

In this module, you’ll explore Jung’s concept of the shadow — the unacceptable, repressed, or unwelcome aspects of our lives.

You’ll also deepen your exploration of the intergenerational shadow with a paradoxical approach called Chöd — the 11th century Tibetan Buddhist practice of Feeding Your Demon — applied to our ancestral legacies, pathologies, and complexes.

Tirzah will ask you to bring one particular life issue you’re working on to class with you — perhaps it’s addiction, OCD, sexual abuse/patriarchal domination, depression, etc...

Whatever the details of your struggle, Tirzah will create a caring, safe space for this practice.

She’ll then guide you to create a personification of your life issue. You’ll enter active imagination to walk the “creature” back into your lineages as you discover more about its gravitational pulls. In this powerful session, you’ll discover:

  • The true meaning of “the shadow” — and how you can uncover the shadow of your family and lineage
  • Why bringing your “demons,” the unacceptable, repressed, unwelcome aspects of your life, into the light of awareness reduces their destructive power — and releases the enormous life energy stored within them
  • A practice to locate the core issue/demon as a sensation that lives in your physical body — and how to invite a picture (an image, form, being, or creature) from the unconscious as an embodiment of this sensation and feeling
  • How to face your two bloodlines
  • The power of your family’s gravitational pull

Ritual Practicum #1: Feeding Your Demon (August 24)


In this practicum, you’ll join the class in a sacred space to deepen the healing ritual of the ancient Tibetan Chöd Practice.

Within the loving, safe space Tirzah creates for you and your classmates, you’ll face your ancestral demon, invoking its personification once again and communicating with it to discover what it wants and needs from you. 

Then you’ll learn how to feed it the nectar of your essence, allowing it to magically transform its shape and become your protector and ally. 


Module 4: The Alchemy of Healing — Transmuting the Family Demon (August 26)


Did you know that your biggest enemies hold untapped sources of support and protection?

This week you’ll continue with the transformational process of alchemizing your ancestral demon, gaining further access to its deep reservoir of life force — and listening for its commitments to you as it becomes your ally and assistant.

Together, you’ll work to free up blocked energy and health, receiving renewed power as you realize personal and family goals.

As you’ll discover, the demon will continue resolving itself through satiation.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Meet the demon in its newly personified form
  • Discover how the demon’s transformed energy can become a positive and protective presence in your life
  • Learn ways to gain access, protection, and help for yourself and your family from your ally, the former demon
  • Find out how your personal transformation might impact your lineage
  • Begin to ask yourself how far back your connection to your ally might go, and describe the energy around it — perhaps it’s fear, malice, ignorance, obedience, etc.
  • Clarify and reset your life goals

Module 5: The Power of Dignity & Honor (September 2)


What do your ancestors know about shame and honor? And how can you step beyond their history into your full radiant dignity?

This week you’ll examine your own history of shame and honor and receive sanction and blessing from your ancestors and allies.

Tirzah will guide you to stand in your own dignity to become an agent of change and blessing for the world.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Why the shame that often accompanies trauma is also an attractor for further shame and trauma, creating an ongoing cycle of trouble 
  • How traits like dignity and honor are also attractors for similar, admirable traits — and how they accrue positive potent power as we give honor to others
  • How the ancient mystical term for honor, Kavod, is connected to the dark feminine — and what she may be telling you now in the form of COVID-19
  • Three large cultural themes that play on our world’s current social and environmental crises: patriarchy, colonization, and racism
  • How the demons of our times result in the large-scale robbing of honor/dignity of entire populations
  • How to work through the cultural Chöd process step-by-step as Tirzah models how to transform the cultural demons of greed and power

Ritual Practicum #2: Transforming Demons With the Cultural Chöd Process (September 8)


In this practicum, you’ll once again gather with Tirzah and the class to create a sacred ritual space.

You’ll begin with several practices to strengthen your grounding to the Earth while opening up energetic portals to a larger version of yourself that’s strengthened by honor for your essential being.

Tirzah will guide you in the practice of extending Kavod (honor and dignity), first to your bloodlines, then to your compatriots, and then to troublesome characters in your life.

You’ll then begin to receive the Kabbalistic practice of becoming an Agent of Blessing, Ba’al HaBracha. This begins with learning to open your central channel, called the Middle Pillar in Kabbalah, to receive divine blessing into your own being. With an open fluid channel, you’ll allow the overflow of this energy, transmitting this power to three beings.

You’ll watch the effects of this powerful transmission, before safely coming back from expanded awareness to your here-and-now self — grounded and ready to take this practice into the world.


Module 6: Becoming an Agent of Blessing (September 9)


This week you’ll ask yourself, How can I become an agent of change and transformation in the world?

In this pivotal session, you’ll discover how to take all you’ve been learning and stand in your family and in the world as an agent of true change and transformation.

As Tirzah will show you, you can enrich your life and rise to your own greatness by tapping into the spiritual resources and resilience of the great souls who’ve walked this Earth before you.

You’ll turn toward your ancestors to bless and release them from their socially constrained and conditioned contexts... and come to see yourself as much larger and greater than your life’s patterns — because your soul’s light is actually your destiny.

You’ll discover practices to:

  • Embody grounding and self-regulation
  • Strengthen the open central channel through chi kung (aka qigong) and tai chi movements — or you can simply visualize strengthening your central channel — and cultivate the energy body to become a channel for blessing
  • Step back into your genogram to find family blessings like resiliency, humor, ingenuity, arts, and community-building
  • Cultivate courage and moral imagination for these uncertain times we’re facing
  • Engage in a guided meditation for self-blessing to release your karmic burdens and open your internal pathways for blessing others
  • Face, befriend, and feed the naysayer within who would like to obstruct your larger mission and radiance
  • Draw on the work of Viktor Frankl to see your life’s “givens” — and explore why they don’t need to define you, after all

Module 7: Ancestors as Portals to the Divine (September 16)


In this closing session, Tirzah will guide you to ask yourself, How can I keep my channels to the unseen worlds open and clear, to keep receiving divine guidance and protection as I go forth?

Ancient myths and legends provide plenty of guidance for this moment in history...

And as you bring your journey to a close, Tirzah will share how rituals and sacred space, which are so essential right now, can provide a bridge to the divine worlds.

In this final module, you’ll explore:

  • Ways to help tip the balance in favor of healthy life on Earth
  • How to work with 2 Kabbalistic stories: the cosmic myth of the shattered vessels and the teaching of the 36 hidden pious ones (Tzaddikim)
  • Why both Kabbalistic tales correspond directly to the current state of our world — and provide direction
  • A guided journey to see yourself as a fully flowered Tzaddik, who has the ability to travel back and forth in time to find and replant the kernel of good in your bloodline — the pure heart and intention that became misguided
  • How to see through and beyond the outer husks of family patterns and unmetabolized trauma to the light within your ancestral lineage

What Graduates of Tirzah’s Courses Are Saying...

“If you feel drawn to this course, it is very likely that the ancestors are wanting to work alongside you.”

This course is a mixture of fascinating intellectual information, practical exercises, and connecting stories of others’ experience… There have been confirmations of what I already know, but whole areas that are new to me. If you feel drawn to this course, it is very likely that the ancestors are wanting to work alongside you. I now have a sense of well ancestors and those in my soul-pod who are supporting me, rather than writing off all my family as dysfunctional and potentially dangerous. It has given me a sense of agency in terms of my ability to heal the past, which I have done a little before, and my gratitude for those who are urging me on in my soul path. I have so appreciated Tirzah’s approach; I love her vocabulary, her compassion, her vulnerability, and her wisdom.
— Zoe Grace Cozens, Vienne, France

“Connecting with my ancestors and understanding their Earthwalk has been incredibly healing.”

Connecting with my ancestors and understanding their Earthwalk has been incredibly healing. This course was rich with information, practice, and support. I highly recommend this course if you have an interest in ancestral work.
— Jo Agosto Victor, New York

“The knowledge and practices helped me so deeply.”

This is the first course I have taken through the Shift and I have been so enlightened through it — it is exactly what I was looking for in my life. The knowledge and practices helped me so deeply. Tirzah Firestone’s knowledge and ability to communicate it made this course very valuable. Her encouragement and experience allowed me to have shifts that I wouldn’t have been able to have if I had tried this subject matter on my own. I’m very grateful for it, and the format was wonderful.
— Sarah, Utah

“... full appreciation of what our ancestors went through...”

I came away with full appreciation of what our ancestors went through and the work we still have to do. It is indeed very purposeful and joyful.
— Donna

“... a new, deeper relationship with my mother, who died when I was in my twenties.”

This course brought me insight into my family history and how it has affected me. It has opened a door to understanding and building a new, deeper relationship with my mother, who died when I was in my twenties. I have been looking for this in therapy for years. I can’t recommend this course highly enough!
— Penny White, Los Angeles

“... took me far back into the ancient ways of life within the magical, mythical times...”

I’ve been given the ability to deeply connect to my own soul’s myth through this ancestral wisdom work. It not only put me into contact with well and wise ancestors from my direct, personal bloodlines, it took me far back into the ancient ways of life within the magical, mythical times when humans still lived in harmony with nature.
— Ellen Maria, Mexico

“... opened the doors of communication with relatives I have had very little contact with...”

The course as a whole helped me understand who I am and how my ancestor’s stories have informed how I react and have lived my life for the past 70 years. It also opened the doors of communication with relatives I have had very little contact with and helped me express my love for them. It also opened up a new space in my meditation practice. Rabbi Tirzah is a very kind and gentle soul and provided a safe space for expressing one’s feelings and learning.
— D’vorah Epstein McDonaldBurbank, California

“... reminder that there is much that we can do for the world by the work that we do on ourselves...”

There were many subtle benefits that I will take away from this course, but the primary takeaway for me is the reminder that there is much that we can do for the world by the work that we do on ourselves — with the hope that in doing so, we can be part of the healing of the planet. Mother Earth needs us, and all of us who walk upon her will benefit from our healing journeys.
— Dennice, British Columbia Canada

“... connected me kinesthetically with my ancestors’ traumas... [and] helped me improve current physical problems in my life.”

I have already been communicating with my loved ones and my husband for 25 years, but the course connected me kinesthetically with my ancestors’ traumas. Releasing them helped me improve current physical problems in my life.
— Carol Gottesman, Hubbard, Ohio

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
