Podcast Episode 11: Ancestral Healing as Political Activism

This week, Anna Joy brings you a solo podcast episode inspired by recent events both in the political environment of the United States, but also in the anti-racist environment of instagram and social justice online culture. The common thread? Child separation at the border. The context Anna Joy is coming at this from? Ancestral healing as political action.

 

She starts off with a short poem about her ancestors and a moment to celebrate today’s Full Moon in Capricorn (find the youtube video where she goes into it deeper at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P079FndeBbs&t=320s) and then gets into the content!

Anna Joy was encouraged by her own ancestors to share her family’s story about becoming colonizers in the United States. She shares her awareness of her Swedish lineage as a case study for how white women who want to do better can use their family stories of colonization to heal systems of oppression within themselves and their society in the current day.

 

And, if you stick around to the very end, Anna shares the ancestral practice she uses which was taught to her by Winifred at Awentree (www.awentree.com and @awentree on instagram) including an altar and meditation suggestions.
