Teal Swan: Ancestral Healing CourseAncestral Healing incorporates shadow work into the healing process. The instructions and lessons are communicated in a clear, easy-to-understand way that anyone can follow and experience.

Teal Swan uses her leading-edge modalities such as her version of parts work to facilitate major positive change and heal past wounds rather than covering them up with futile and empty affirmations or spiritual bypassing.

Power Quotes From The Show

We Are Eradicating Men

"We're in a very scary point right now where most women are realizing that they're doing everything. We are literally eradicating men becase the wounds that feminine has experienced with the masculine have gotten to the point where there's a desire for them not to exist." - Teal Swan

Women Can't + Shouldn't Have to Do It All

"As women, we want to think that we can do it all and that we're expected to do it all, even though it causes us pain. But we keep fueling ourselves and each other with this illusion and because of it, children are suffering, we are suffering, and we're unable to set up the right structure within society to make it so that children can thrive." - Teal Swan

Why Do Some People Turn to Spirituality?

"The vast majority of people who are pushed towards the spiritual field are pushed there because of relational trauma. They've experienced enough pain with people that they're no longer looking to people for their answers, they're looking to connect with something else. Usually that's when people turn to the spiritual realm." - Teal Swan

About Teal Swan

Teal Swan | Ancestral Healing: Multidimensional Genetics, Conscious Parenting + The Impossible Task of Single MothersTeal Swan's mission is the transformation of human suffering into an empowered and authentic life.

She is the creator of the popular "Ask Teal" YouTube series, the author of six internationally published books, and the artist of hundreds of frequency paintings.

In conjunction with her vision of creating positive world change, Teal Swan founded HEADWAY FOUNDATION, a nonprofit company that enables ideas, goals, and ventures that are aimed at positive world change.

She was born with a range of extrasensory abilities. It was because of these abilities that she ended up being targeted to become a victim of abuse.

In her own words: “Without the abuse and suffering I experienced, I would be someone who could give you a lot of esoteric information about the universe at large, but who would have no real grasp on the reality of human suffering or how to heal it. I would have only had ½ of the picture of human existence. The gift of my own suffering is that I now have the full picture and that has drastically changed both what I teach and the way that I teach.
