Shamanism, Ancestors and Transgenerational Therapy
Contemporary Practices and Universal Wisdom
Translated from the French edition :
"Chamanisme, rapport aux ancêtres et intégration transgénérationnelle"
The Ancients already knew the therapeutic potential of the family links between generations that we rediscover in modern transgenerational practices. Far from being a new fashion, the recognition of transgenerational processes dates back to the first shamanic type of communities. Their methods to cure "The Ancestor Syndrome" offer to contemporary therapies essential historical references and valuable teachings.
Transgenerational therapy brings a welcome middle ground for exchanges between traditional shamanic and actual therapeutic approaches. This new field nourishes the rooting of contemporary practices as well as the renewal of universal wisdom. With the contribution of specialists from different backgrounds, this collective book presents a wide spectrum of perspectives to bridge traditional and modern knowledges.
