Ancestral Wisdom Lineages, Sacred Plant Medicines, Transpersonal Psychology: The relationship between healing and awakening
My intention is to explore and develop on the value of ancestral lineages and transmissions imbedded in a modern approach of transpersonal psychology. From my perspective, the relationship between healing and awakening is a fundamental aspect of any Transpersonal approach. Without engaging on a healing journey, awakening lacks a good fertile soil to be fully integrated in a harmonious flow of presence. Without a complete path of awakening rooted in our true nature and supported by the power of ancestral lineage and transmission, seeking healing, whether through modern psychotherapy or sacred plant medicines, will not be enough to totally free oneself from suffering, and it could even create identifications which can become major obstacles on the path of liberation. Our ancestors have done a great endeavor in preserving, through uninterrupted lineage, the transmission of the “inner treasure map” for realizing our true nature. It’s also deeply embedded in the nature around us, infused in the plants and the animals and the mountains and the oceans, all there to support us in recognizing our primordial state. There is an underlying intelligence in nature which is communicating with us, whispering our names back home. I refer to this as the evolutionary Mycelium of our ancestors guiding us in the birth of an Ancient Future rooted in a harmonious state of presence. It is alive and it is growing also through the Transpersonal movement into society, as we bring all of the pieces of the puzzle together.
