This was a fascinating show with great depth and scope.  I can see why Daniel Foor is such an effective teacher and communicator because he was able to share a variety of wisdom on topics that are often difficult to understand.  His book is also refreshing and illuminating.

Daniel is a teacher and practitioner of practical animism who specializes in ancestral and family healing and in helping folks learn to relate well with the rest of the natural world.

His focus is on the ancestors sources from his training as a doctor of psychology and licensed marriage and family therapist, from the guidance of my teachers in earth-honoring traditions (e.g., European pagan paths, Native American ways, Mongolian shamanism, and West African Ifá/Òrìṣà tradition), and from two decades of implementing the teachings of ancestor reverence in his own life.

Since 2005 he has guided hundreds of ancestor trainings, rituals, and talks throughout the United States and helped many others to reconnect with their family ancestors through personal sessions.

His new book Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing is available now.

He has also trained with teachers of Mahayana Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, and diverse indigenous paths, including the remnant and returning traditions of my older English, Irish, and German ancestors.

His doctoral research in psychology focused on the use of shamanic healing practices by clinical mental health professionals. Training as a therapist, living in other societies, and immersion in different lineages of ritual work all inform my kind and non-dogmatic approach to ancestor and earth reverence.

His wife and he live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.

For more on his approach to ritual and path see these trainings and sessions.
