Plants and Ancestors Ancestral Healing Certification Class

Online Class 

Cathy Skipper smilingDo you feel the pull to tune into your ancestral wisdom but are confused about how to start?

Do the traumas of your ancestors impact your life and need ancestral healing?

Would you like to know how to use ancestral medicine with your clients?

Ancestral healing is a powerful and important part of any healing modality and one that up until now has often been forgotten.


My name is Cathy Skipper and I have been drawn to the world of the ancestors since I was a young child. My maternal line comes from a race of people often referred to as ‘The Secret Race’.

I spent the first part of my life living out the traumas of my people without knowing why or how. To find out more about how I healed my maternal lineage read my recent blog post “Healing the Mother Line.”

Once I began consciously undertaking my own ancestral healing work, I realized its importance and influence on both an Individual Level AND a Global Level.

My life’s purpose is to help integrate this sphere of medicine into the world.

I am extremely grateful to be able to share this work with you in this online class!


   We Are 

   Being Called



Unresolved trauma in past generations finds a way to repeat itself. We feel the trauma inside ourselves, until someone finally transforms it. At this time in history many of us are being called to do this transformational work and integrate traumas that have been passed down from past generations. As we work to transform our personal traumas, these transformations echo out into our families and communities. The more we collectively become aware of the need to re-think our way of being in the world and where we are heading, the more it becomes apparent that in order to heal the future, we need to heal the past.


We women need to work on healing our maternal inheritance. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is just a small percentage of our DNA, separate from nuclear DNA and is passed down uniquely through the maternal line, through the egg cells. There is a ‘She’ that is the same ‘She’ in myself, my mother, my grandmother, my great-grandmother and so on. The feminine rising is coming from this trans-generational ‘She.’ The feminine in our bloodlines is pushing us to give her a voice. The voice she never had, the name that was taken from her, the place that was stolen from her. This lineage is calling to be healed.


Heal Your   









We need to learn how to work with the ancestors to heal the past, ourselves and future generations. There are three common emotional textures that are often related to historic and trans-generational traumas: Loss and DespairVictimhood, and Shame and Guilt. If these are first reactions that you or your clients have to common challenges, obstacles and confrontations, the solution could be in healing the past. It is up to us!
