Episode #19: The Bright and Well Ones with Ash Johns

I’ve been feeling the call to invite more voices on the Belonging Podcast to help me paint in perspectives of this journey of Belonging that are different from my own. In this episode, I am so excited to welcome Ash Johns who is a trans-cultural ancestral healing guide, psycho-spiritual coach, ceremonial priestess, strategist, speaker, and author. Ash and I are talking about what it means to be a good ancestor and connect with the bright and well ones, connecting to the land without perpetuating colonization, and working with the ancestors to heal the collective.

“If you really want everyone to be well, what are you willing to do in your own personal life to help orchestrate, illustrate, inspire, and stand in that truth?” -Ash Johns


More from Ash Johns:

How do you invite your bright and well ancestors to work with you? Or which ancestors (known or unknown) do you feel a connection to?

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.
