A six week journey to discovering where you come from, the medicine you carry in your bones and the ways to honour and heal your lineage.
Your Ancestors passed down much to you, strength and resilience, fear and pain, love and joy, depression and trauma.
If you have felt out of sorts for too long or are experiencing unexplained dis-ease of the body, mind or spirit you are not alone!
Learning about your unique inheritance of trauma will allow you to find deeper understanding, acceptance and healing for yourself, your ancestors and future generations.
Most of the trauma that we are currently dealing with, as individuals and collectively, has strong roots in our early life, or in past lives that we may have no conscious awareness. The idea that a person’s life can be affected by what their ancestors went through has been known since humanity begin but we are now at a time where we can remember this wisdom and work with this healing.
Ancestral Trauma generally refers to the ways in which trauma experienced in one generation affects the health and well-being of descendants of future generationsAncestral trauma roots are diverse and could range from war, infidelity, mental anxiety, immigration, just to name a few.
This pain may have been passed down, along with coping mechanisms and alterations to your very DNA.
If you have experienced unexplained pain, fear, disease, worry, anxiety or depression finding out about ancestral trauma will shine a light on what is going on and allow for you to choose your own story and life path.
How can transforming Ancestral trauma help you?
- You will feel freer, clearer and more grounded
- You will be more connected to your ancestors and their stories
- You will feel more prepared to step into conscious conception
- You will have more capacity as a child and parent to actively heal family patterns
- You will have resources to work with anything that comes up as you continue to work with your ancestors
- You will find acceptance and understanding for what you have inherited and tools to transform this inheritance
WHERE DO I COME IN?
There are many different patterns at birth, which, if left unhealed become our normal, divergent behavior.
Most people are not aware of this possibility and believe these patterns simply to be a part of their nature. It is only through understanding, acceptance and transformation that we can live out who we really are.
It is my deep privilege to walk you through this information I have gathered for my own healing and the healing of my clients, family and the world.

What participants are saying:
“Marika’s “Transforming Ancestral Trauma” course was a gift. Even before I went into the first live session, I was drawn to the course content and had wanted to establish a deeper connection to my ancestors. Right away I felt as if I was being gently ushered into a loving field for six weeks along with her expert guidance. Marika is a kind soul who happens to be an excellent teacher. I loved the live sessions, the visualizations, the drumming journeys and hearing other particpants’ incredible takeaways. I also enjoyed watching her pre-recorded videos and reading the PDFs and other materials which were perfectly digestible. I loved this course and will take it again. Thank you, Marika.”
“Marika is a gift. I needed her gifts as a facilitator and teacher to help me to connect with my ancestors the right way. Her tools aided me spiritually, emotionally and physically. She prepared me for the plethora of experiences that she knew I’d be going through and I am actually having a real journey. It doesn’t end. My ancestors want the best for me in this life. They want me to be happy and they want me to get the most out of this life. They want to pour their blessings on me as long as I will receive it. I had no idea that receiving would take work. The ability to be able to heal your ancestors as a part of this work is the most touching experience. To know that we can actually do that for them after they are gone from the physical realm is just extraordinary. I look forward to continuing giving them this peace as gratitude for all that they do for me. They protect me. They love me. And so I can heal, comfort and thank them any way I can❤️”
“I have been digging into my roots and ancestral lines my whole life, but this course helped immensely in creating a practice of continuous connection to my ancestors. I have felt uprooted by many global and personal events in 2020, and working with my ancestors offered a medicine that is so unique and needed!
Marika showed up fully in her authenticity as an instructor and held space for all of the participants to do the same! I really enjoyed the course material and her open curious approach to this hard work!
Thank you marika for this beautiful offering!”

Why learn from me?
Marika Reid Hall RAc, HDP, BA
I am a Mama, Acupuncturist, Shamanic Practitioner, Holistic Doula and Ceremony Creatrix who is dedicated to helping people return to self through finding connection with their bodies, spirit and the rhythms of nature. I have been fascinated by the herstory of my ancestors and how their lives, traumas, beliefs and stories have shaped my life; from my genetics to my own beliefs. Through my work as a Doula, Shamanic Practitioner and Acupuncturist, I have seen how the imprinting of patterns from the ancestors can affect our lives and how these can be understood and cleared to create more acceptance, freedom and joy.
