Ancestral Lineage Repair is a gentle framework developed by Daniel Foor of the Ancestral Medicine Organization for facilitating the healing of our ancestors of blood and bone. This ritual process, also referred to as Ancestral Lineage Repair, creates vibrant and viable relationships with the wise ones who have gone before us. But how do we engage with ancestors we never knew from hundreds/thousands of years ago?
Join Jen Hudziec as she discusses the framework, technologies, and benefits of engaging in Ancestral Lineage Repair. This Zoom discussion is free and open to the public.

About Jen Hudziec
I am a ritualist, ancestral lineage repair practitioner, animist, fire walk instructor, body worker, polarity energy therapist, and educator. I have spent the past 25 years exploring and practicing a diverse mosaic of ritual arts. Raised Roman Catholic, I departed organized religion when I was 18 bitter and disillusioned. Left with a deep sense of loss, I realized that the lack of regular ritual the church had provided me was the core of this loss. Thus began my journey into ritual practices that invited creativity, relationality, connection, and community.
I am the daughter of Linda and Ernest, granddaughter to Hedwig, Rudolph, Geraldine, and Raymond. I am first generation American and reside on traditional Abanaki land in New Hampshire (US). Both sets of my Grandparents immigrated to the US; one set from Nova Scotia, Canada and the other from Poland after being interned during WW2. My heritage is Slavic, Baltic, Germanic, Norse, and Russian. I am dedicated to carrying forward the traditions of my heritage while reviving Pre-Christain European Indigenous Knowledge as a cornerstone of my spiritual practice and ritual offerings. The cosmology and folk medicine I practice is informed by the disrupted lines to my animistic/folk magic ancestry which resides with the Celts, Polish Whisperers, Ukrainian Molfars, and the Carpatho-Rusyn people of the Carpathian Mountains.
I am indebted to the teachings of Elder Malidoma Somé on behalf of the West African Dagara people for leading me back to my ancestors and to initiated Elders Ann Sousa and Holly Brown for anchoring years of Dagara ritual work. I am an initiated Dagara Diviner with Beyi name, and am grateful for Dagara ancestralizations, elemental rites of passage, grief work, and the connection to Wedeme (keepers of the wild). The spirit of the Dagara lives deeply in my bones and I extend respect, credit, and gratitude whenever referencing what I am fortunate to pass on. In addition, my work has been deeply impacted by Dr. Daniel Foor of Ancestral Medicine, and ALisa Starweather of the Priestess Path Women’s Mystery School.
* Foundational learning around establishing non-dogmatic spiritual practice, cultivating safe relationships with helping spirits/spirit guides, creating altars and ritual arts development.
* Support reviving lost cultural traditions and practices through ancestral folk medicine, land tending, cooking, and traditional crafts.
* Integrating different cultural practices with a sensitivity to appropriation and harmful impact.
I welcome non-binary, LGBTQ, and BIPOC clients. I strive to impact systemic racism with dedicated white supremacy deconstruction and regular reparations that support the advancement of Women of Color and under-served communities. I offer a limited number of low income sessions by request via my Contact page.
