LIVE IN LIFE-GIVING RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR ANCESTORS.
AND REMEMBER & EMBODY THE ANCESTRAL WISDOM & TRUTH THAT HAS ALWAYS LIVED WITHIN YOU.
HAVE BEEN CALLING YOU.
You see, hear, feel & sense their nudges and the breadcrumbs they leave you from the other side.
The parts of you that have always long for home are getting louder and louder.
The often visceral way you are drawn to the familiar frequencies of your roots and the curiosity to know who your people were can no longer be ignored.
Return To Your Roots is a 14-week group ancestral remembrance & reclamation journey for BIPOC to learn to live in a life-giving relationship with their ancestors so they may reconnect with & embody their ancestral wisdom & truth to feel unshakably guided on their path.
Walking hand-in-hand with your ancestors as you return to the root of who you TRULY are at your core awaits.
Ancestral work grounds you at your core. Connecting to the ROOTS of where you come from is a necessary step in spirituality that is often skipped.
Who are you if you are not connected to the ROOT of who you are & where you come from?
As A descendant of immigrants…
You’ve been separated from the land of your ancestors.
Stripped from the comfort & familiarity of the frequencies of the land your lineage called home for centuries.
Fragmenting parts of your soul, assimilation leaving you disconnected from your roots.
You’ve also been a victim to colonization,
Colonization separating you from the generational wisdom of your lineage.
Disconnecting your people from the Truth of who they were & forcing them to assimilate into something that they were not in order to survive.
RETURN TO YOUR ROOTS was created to support you in cultivating a life-giving relationship with your ancestors so that you may return to familiar frequencies of the motherland that you long for & reclaim the ancestral wisdom & Truth taken unfairly from your lineage due to colonization.
You see, no matter the physical distance from the Motherland or the erasure caused by colonization, you can NEVER be separate from the essence of where you come from.
In your DNA, you hold an unbreakable energetic memory of the culture, wisdom, gifts, traditions, recipes & ways of living that your ancestors once intimately knew.
And these frequencies are all part of who you truly at your core; for when you remember who your ancestors were, you remember who you are -- for they are a reflection of you.
Return to Your Roots is a journey designed to strengthen & develop the connection you naturally hold with your ancestors so that you may not only commune & communicate with them to receive guidance & support but also uncover the pieces of your Truth that are linked to you ancestry so that you may express & embody your Truest Self in this life.
From this ancestral relationship that you’ll learn to build & cultivate, you will unearth the essence of your roots, manifest them into the remembrance of your ancestral wisdom & Truth that has always lied within, and revive ancestral & cultural traditions so that they are preserved & passed down to the ones who will come after you.
THIS IS FOR YOU, AND FOR THEM.
HOW TO KNOW IF THIS IS FOR YOU
You desire to feel deeply close & connected to your ancestors (and therefore, your roots) & communicate with them for guidance & support on a regular basis.
You want to close ancestral loops to make peace with the past & put down what’s heavy to rewrite generational stories filled with possibility.
You desire to embody your ancestral gifts & revive your own unique ancestral culture, wisdom & traditions to preserve them & pass them down to your descendants.
You want to deeply embody your Truest Self & feel whole by merging all pieces & identities that you hold in a beautiful union for undeniable, true belonging.
Colonization sought to erase your lineage;
Return To Your Roots is the fuel to rebel against oppressive systems and do everything in our power to REVIVE, REMEMBER & RECLAIM what was taken from your lineage.
Inside Return to Your Roots, you will:
LEARN TO COMMUNE & COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR ANCESTORS TO RECEIVE GUIDANCE & SUPPORT
Open up the ancestral communication portal in a safe, respectful & empowering way, and learn to nurture that life-time relationship through ritual, offerings & communion.
MEND ANCESTRAL WOUNDINGS & CLOSE ANCESTRAL LOOPS
Discern what’s yours to carry from your maternal & paternal lineages & what’s not so that you may break disempowering cycles, make peace with the past and move forward embodying a new way of being to leave a new legacy behind.
CULTIVATE A CONNECTION WITH THE ESSENCE OF WHERE YOU COME FROM
Remember the Truth of who your people were at their core so you may feel connected to the frequency & energy of your Roots as you open up portals of deep connection that could never be broken again.
RECLAIM & REVIVE ANCESTRAL TRADITIONS & CULTURE
Learn to follow & listen to your ancestral guidance so that you may recover and preserve culture, traditions & ways of being that colonization sought to erase.
BECOME MORE *YOU* & CONNECT WITH THE ANCESTRAL WISDOM, TRUTH & GIFTS THAT HAVE ALWAYS LIVED WITHIN
Access the infinite, rich and ancient wisdom of where you come from that has carried your lineage for generations, that which lives within you too. From this space, you will grow in intimacy with the ancestral gifts that were passed down to you and learn to express & embody your Truest Self through these gifts & wisdom.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Connecting to my ancestors brought tears to my eyes.
"...holy moly!! I just did the connecting with my ancestors meditation and WOW!! ...this is the deepest/clearest and longest amount of time I have connected with my ancestors!
It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing your magic, and for being an avenue for me to be able to connect with my ancestors in this way!"
You've just guided me through something so incredibly magical.
"..You've just guided me through something so incredibly magical. I can never thank you enough. I could not stop the tears. A Native American woman guided me through the woods and now I need to find her in my family lineage of French & Scots. THANK YOU."
My lineage is forever changed.
"...it's kinda crazy to think my lineage is forever changed from meeting you, like I will make sure my nieces & nephews know the gift of returning to their spirituality. Like our opening invocation is in my Ancestral book! Us crossing paths has been one of my greatest blessings and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating a space to meet my soul in."
We are the seeds that grew from the people the colonizer tried to erase.
And we are coming for everything our ancestors were denied.

MEET YOUR GUIDE
I am Angela. As a trauma-informed intuitive guide, ancestral wisdom keeper, healer, writer and old soul, I am in deep devotion to spreading a message of liberation through the work that I do.
3 YEARS AGO I OPENED UP THE DOOR THAT LED ME TO MY CONNECTION TO MY ANCESTORS.
The ancestral door that…
☽ Changed the way I viewed my innate spiritual nature as an immigrant & a descendant of the oppressed.
☽ Supported me in feeling closer to the disconnected parts of me that longed for the flavors, experiences & purest essence of the Motherland that held the memory of my people.
☽ Would anchor me into my roots so that I may spread my wings blessed by the wisdom & support of my ancestor and reclaim what was taken from my lineage due to colonization.
3 years of embodying, integrating, learning, unlearning and communing with my ancestors have opened up infinite possibilities, deep remembrance & revival of my culture & traditions, and feeling closer to my ancestral gifts & medicine than ever.
Now, 3 years later, I am ready to share a piece of my heart through a group journey revolving around ancestral remembrance, connection & reclamation – the way of life that has transformed my reality.
This group journey is only for BIPOC for a reason; I believe this work is undeniably necessary & important in our communities due to what our ancestors endured in order to survive.
This is our birthright; it always has been and I won’t stop until every BIPOC who feels called to this work takes back what was stripped from their people so they leave a new legacy of liberation behind.
As a WOC with Indigenous ancestry, I feel strongly connected to the Earth, plant medicine, animals, dance as movement, cyclical living, living by the stars & moon, & creation as spirituality. All things I teach & infuse into my life’s work.
It would be my deepest honor to guide you during this experience of ancestral remembrance & reclamation.
WHAT you’ll RECEIVe
☽ Twelve live 90-minute weekly group circles via Zoom where we will swim into the ancestral depths together through various teachings, rituals, practices & community shares
☽ Channeled divine messages, guidance & support via Angela's channel
☽ Practices, meditations, rituals & devotional tools to aid in integration & embodiment outside of our calls
☽ Private community group for intimate support, connection & accountability

☽ 2 rest weeks to allow space for gentle integration
☽ A special reunion after our container closes to re-connect, be heard in your integration & ask for any support you need
"I became much more grounded in trust & security for myself, my business, & my life. I have deeper clarity & confidence in who I am, what I have to offer, & what life has in store for me."
"This was life changing... my intuition, confidence, and visual artistry has strengthened...I gained more body confidence, more stillness and presence, more acceptance of who/where/what I am, and more curiosity to my cultural, soul, and cosmic ancestry."
"I received confirmation, clarity and guidance that I needed to clear an energetic block that I had been experiencing that was keeping me small."
WHEN DECIDING IF THIS JOURNEY IS FOR YOU...
I invite you to drop into your body, the closest physical expression of your Soul.
Gently sit with it in stillness and take a moment to feel into what it desires, what it longs for, what it yearns for.
LISTEN TO ITS SOFT WHISPERS.
There is wisdom here. There is a deep knowing here.
TRUST THAT IT KNOWS THE WAY.
It always has.
We officially begin our journey on the week of Monday, July 18th (Cancer season, baby!) and our Opening Ceremony will be on Tuesday, July 19th.
All live circles will be held via Zoom and a recording will be available. We will decide as a community on the weekly call time that best suits our schedules.
The program is 14 weeks long with 2 integration/rest weeks in between.
☽ THIS IS AN OFFERING EXCLUSIVELY FOR BIPOC ☽
This live cohort of Return to Your Roots is a space for BIPOC only, where we honor brave space as priority in equitable mentorship for BIPOC and those with marginalized identities.
This is a place where our values align with advocating for social justice, where we acknowledge the privileges we may have and show up with compassion to uplift those who carry more marginalized identities than us. During our container, we will move through threads that will help us unpack toxic new age spirituality & reclaim the traditional spiritual rituals of our ancestral lineages.
I desire for every soul who joins us on this journey to feel safe, seen, heard and held in their lived experiences as we reclaim what is rightfully ours, call on our ancestral strength and dismantle beliefs, thoughts & patterns born from systems of oppression.
It’s time to fiercely & rebelliously reclaim what colonization took from you & your lineage.
Do it with the guidance & support of your ancestors leading the way.
Who is this program for?This cohort of Return To Your Roots was created for BIPOC who are: Immigrants and/or descendents of immigrants Artists, mystics, healers, witches/wizards, seekers, mothers/fathers, coaches, change-makers...who are cycle breakers and are the next generation of ancestors who create ripple effects of change throughout their lineages.
When will the live calls/journeys be? Will there be recordings if I can’t make it live?Our first group call/journey will be on Thursday, July 21st at a tentative 6pm CT; we will decide as a group if that time works for everyone. Since we have the advantage of this being an intimate group, we’ll be deciding as a group on the weekly call schedule moving forward so that we can ensure as best we can that everyone can be there live. All calls/journeys are recorded and posted within 48 hours and you can pre-submit any questions if you know you won’t be able to make it live.
Once I join, how soon will we get started?"We officially begin our journey together the week of July 18th during Cancer season, the astrological sign that rules ancestry, home & family. You will get access to the program's portal on Monday, July 11th & on Tuesday, July 19th we will have our first live group circle.
I identify as BIPOC or mixed race but have never been in a group program just for us. What can I expect?You can expect a comforting space that will feel like one of the greatest exhales you’ve taken in your life. Imagine being surrounded by other BIPOC who look like you, have similar life threads and who just f*cking GET IT because they’re also descendants of immigrants, the enslaved and/or the oppressed. I promise you, BIPOC need and desire more spaces like these and once you get a taste of it, you’ll wonder how you went so long without it.
I’m pretty introverted and group programs make me anxious, especially in a vulnerable topic like spirituality & ancestry. Is this program for me?"Beautiful! It just so happens that Return To Your Roots was designed by an introvert who works best in small groups. This cohort was always meant to be intimate (10 souls max) so we can create a nice and cozy space of journeying into the depths together in a tight container. I will encourage and invite you to remain open throughout the process *and* you will always have full agency in making this experience your own based on your level of comfort. During the live calls, you will have full agency over your camera settings and whether or not you choose to share. I can guarantee that this experience will crack you open and as long as you allow it, you will feel held (whatever that means for you) by the intimate group of souls who are on this journey with you.
Will I receive personal support from you (Angela)?To an extent, yes. By keeping this group intimate, my intention is to provide some 1:1 guidance in our private community group. I will also be available via email to support you, if needed.
How is the program content delivered?The program materials are shared as text & video content, as well as PDFs. In addition to our live call teachings, you’ll receive integration practices that will help you deepen what you're learning such as journaling reflections, meditations, rituals & ceremonies as well as somatic, body-based healing practices.
I want to join but struggle with accountability. Will there be accountability throughout?Yes! On the live calls/journeys, we will be including various ways to check in with each other and hold each other accountable in making space to work through the program. There will also be an opportunity to get matched with an accountability partner if that's something you desire and need. Our private community group will also help in keeping you accountable as you will have the opportunity to communicate in real-time with the other souls in the program.
I have other commitments right now and worry I won’t have time to fully immerse myself. How much time will I need to dedicate to this per week?With calls/journeys, videos and practices, this will take around 3 hours a week, give or take. During the first week, we have a “Clearing Space” section where I will walk you through setting a solid foundation for creating space in your daily life to dedicate time to this journey. I invite you to ask yourself: Is there really gonna be a time in the future when I feel less busy? Or is the busy-ness what’s keeping me from my healing & focusing on myself? Sometimes it might be true: You’ll have more capacity to be fully present at a later time. Sometimes, we need to break the story of “everything else first, me last”. Joining this program can be a great way to transform this pattern.
I've been doing this work on my own. What's special about doing it in community?Community creates deep, potent change! Past group program students would always say how powerful our live calls/circles were because of the way our energies would convene in real-time. Energy knows no bounds of time & space so when we commune in ritual together, you can *feel* the collective energy activating you. That's why when the collective energy of our group comes together, the shifts you will receive are increased tenfold as the healing energy multiplies when coming together in community. Plus, being able to feel truly held, seen & heard by others who understand your lived experiences is a profound healing journey on its own. And as BIPOC, we hold so much in our spirits & bodies from collective ancestral woundings & traumas. We *need* potent collective rituals for collective healing & liberation.
