Episode #26: Ancestral Constellations & Conscious Dreaming with Grandmother Sarah

In this episode of the Belonging Podcast, I invited a dear mentor, teacher, and wise elder in my life, Grandmother Sarah Bicknell, to join me. Sarah has taught me so much about what many of you have been asking me to explore on the show, including working with my dreams and healing ancestral trauma through the work of Family Constellations. We talk about what constellation work is (including the power of healing sentences), the power of healing ancestral trauma, why it’s important to be a conscious dreamer, and how to develop a dream practice.

“It’s always challenging to put into words the way that one sees at a soul level rather than how one sees at a physical-mind-brain level.” -Grandmother Sarah

My book Root & Ritual is now available wherever books are sold!

My intention with this book is for it to be your guide to reconnecting with the earth, your ancestors, and your communities as you come home to your whole self. Despite our best efforts, our modern world leaves so many of us feeling isolated, unworthy, and alone. We’re unrooted from the land, untethered from our lineages, disconnected from our communities, and separated from our deepest sense of self. Root & Ritual is meant to be a pathway back to connection and wholeness through rituals, recipes, and ancestral wisdom.
