This week, Christie sits down with Chi Young Kim and discusses the importance of becoming reconnected with our ancestors. They talk about ways that we can return to direct engagement with our ancestors and how this connection can strengthen our sense of intuition, and heal in a much deeper way than we might realize.
Chi Young Kim (she/her) is a ritual facilitator dedicated to helping people reclaim relationship with their ancestors, one’s self, and to the larger community of the living Earth toward a deeper sense of purpose and belonging. All her recent ancestors are from Korea and as a Korean American woman, she has learned to bridge multiple cultural realities and identities. Her offerings of ancestral healing, and grief support are grounded, embodied and culturally mindful. She also mentors healing practitioners and therapists by teaching ritual skills that help them deepen their connection to themselves and the other-than-human relations in order to show up more fully for their clients. Connect with Chi Young on her website: www.rememberingvoice.com
