    In this captivating episode, host Amanda Parker journeys into the realm of shamanic healing with Kuhn Silver Wolf Drum, who shares his wisdom on connecting with ancestors for deep transformation. Wolf Drum explains that ancestors go beyond just our immediate family to include the lineages that stretch back thousands of years, holding a vast reservoir of wisdom that we can tap into for guidance and healing.

He has since developed a powerful shamanic practice that involves setting an intention for healing and calling in the support of these wise beings to facilitate the process. He emphasizes that true healing is about remembering our own unending spiritual essence and shedding the layers of misunderstanding and disconnection that give rise to sickness.
