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.

I’m especially excited about this year’s summit because, as in the past, we’re including experts in the field of science, psychology, and spirituality. But this year, we’re adding stories from folks who are doing their own ancestral healing and connecting with previous generations to create gorgeous changes in their family systems.

This year, we also dive deeper into the hardships that we, as a human race, have experienced and continue to experience. With Thomas Huebl, we discuss healing global patterns like pandemics, fascism, and civil wars, and how to recognize wounds we don’t even know are there, lurking beneath the surface. Thomas offers a beautiful solution that we can each participate in every single day.

With folks like Joycelyn Davis, Bernadette Pleasant, Jordan Dresser, and others, we’ll learn how they’re working with their own ancestors to overcome some of humanity’s ugliest behavior: systemic racism.

With dreamers like Robert Moss, Dr. Janet Piedilato, and Kimberly Mascaro, PhD, we’ll learn how to connect with our ancestors while we sleep at night and even during our daydreams.

With mediums and oracle experts like Suzanne Giesemann, Mark Anthony, and Carrie Paris, we talk about how to connect with our healed ancestors across the veil — and how to avoid those who caused grave harm while they were still alive.

Shamonic practitioners like Sandra Ingerman, Christina Pratt, and Langston Khan share their expertise in working with ancestors, whether it’s acknowledging ancient fears or living in a way that ensures that we will be the kind of ancestors that our descendants deserve.

When it comes to energy work, Dawson Church, Eileen McKusick, and Mona Delfino discuss how our energy bodies carry patterns laid out by generations that came before us, and how we have the power to effect healthy changes in how our DNA is expressed.

If this topic interests you at all, if you hear your ancestors calling, go ahead and register to listen to this free summit, so you can share in these divine conversations with Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, Dr. Linda Backman, Jane Burns, and so many others. I’ll see you there.


Lisa Bonnice is an award-winning writer and humorist, receiving two Excellence Awards from MSNBC.com during her tenure there as a news writer/associate producer. She also traveled the country as a stand-up comedienne, working with the likes of Tim Allen and Steve Harvey.

Her first book, Shape Shifting: Reclaiming Your Perfect Body , includes a foreword by Neale Donald Walsch, with whom she worked within the organization he founded, Humanity’s Team, as the Regional Director of the entire southern portion of the United States. Her True Crime novel, Fear of Our Father , was twice featured on the Investigation Discovery Network. Her newest novel, a metaphysical comedy called The Poppet Master , includes a foreword by Marc Allen, publisher at New World Library (and the man who discovered Eckhart Tolle).

Lisa hosted her own podcast, Shape Shifting , on BlogTalkRadio, featuring such guests as Lynne McTaggart, Edgar Mitchell, and Neale Donald Walsch. She has been a program host with The Shift Network for almost five years, where she has interviewed luminaries such as Gregg Braden, Robert Thurman, and Stanislov Grof. She also hosted an online chat show, Mind Yourself, where she interviewed experts in human transformation.
Her current writing project, based on actual events found in her family tree, spurred Lisa into her almost obsessive interest in ancestral healing. While doing genealogy research, she discovered an ancient witch trial and generational curse, which explained an awful lot about unusual patterns and illnesses in her life and those of her family. As her work with The Shift Network offered access to many of today’s leading-edge speakers, she noticed a common theme: many of them briefly referred to working with ancestors to heal illness and behavior patterns, but ancestral healing itself was never the main focus of the conversations. Lisa picked up these threads and tied them together, weaving together the Ancestral Healing Summit with Shift’s Summits team. This writing project, tentatively titled The Maxwell Curse, tells how ancestral legacies can ripple across time for centuries, leaving havoc in their wake. Lisa feels that it’s her life’s work to heal that curse by working with her ancestors, and sharing with others how they too can break the ties that bind them to their own families’ past histories.
