New 7-Week Live Video Course Starts
Tuesday, July 2, 2024

Embrace your ancestors’ legacy and become the catalyst for breaking the cycle of unresolved traumas by clearing the remnants of the past using powerful mind-body healing practices and tools, such as working with family photographs, sacred objects, ancestral traditions, attachment theory, and therapeutic journaling.

Address collective and generational wounds to pave the way for personal transformation and healing, so you can live a life filled with freedom, joy, peace, and self-acceptance.


Do you experience worries you can’t quite explain?

Or maybe you have a sense that no matter what you’re dealing with, you just can’t seem to make lasting changes in your life... so you end up right back where you started.

Maybe you feel stuck in a cycle of scarcity or financial difficulties, or find yourself in an unhealthy relationship yet again...

These struggles may have been passed down from your ancestors through what’s called legacy trauma, says renowned therapist and author Dr. Arielle Schwartz.

These wounds can become deeply held beliefs and emotional patterns that impact your self-esteem, your mental and emotional health, and every area of your life.

While it can feel like these limitations and blocks have become unchangeable parts of who you are, you absolutely can release the burdens of trauma that stem from your family history, says Arielle...

This leaves you feeling lighter, with a greater sense of choice, and a deeper sense of belonging as you move through the world.

Join Arielle for a brand-new 7-week course and become the brave member of your lineage who steps forward to break the trauma cycle...

Through weekly resilience-informed teachings, the latest scientific research, reflective exercises, deep inner work, and guided practices you can ultimately heal and release the burdens of your past, move away from scarcity towards abundance, quiet your self-critic, and ultimately discover self-acceptance.

Within your lineage lies the potential for profound healing that transcends past, present, and future generational wounds. Arielle will help you recognize your relationship to the suffering you’re experiencing, as you do your part to facilitate intergenerational healing.

As Arielle guides you to integrate spiritual principles and practices with deep psychological insights, you’ll release and transform your inherited wounds, bringing about a profound shift in consciousness and holistic growth.

As Arielle will explain, transgenerational trauma will be carried forward in families until someone is ready to feel the impact, release the burdens, and, in turn, find a felt sense of freedom. You can be that person, and Arielle will show you how.


In this 7-week live video course, you’ll explore:

  • The true meaning of legacy trauma in all its forms, and how to recognize collective ancestral trauma within yourself
  • The essential role of somatic embodiment when you’re healing generational trauma as Arielle says, “once you feel it, you can heal it”
  • Key practices that support collective and legacy trauma recovery
  • The Ancestor Effect as it relates to resilience
  • Techniques for acknowledging the pain of the past while staying open to new possibilities for your future
  • How your attachment style impacts your life and connections with others and can help you break the pattern of toxic relationships
  • Healing movement practices to unburden yourself from your past
  • The art of mindful grieving and caring for your inner wounds with compassion and lovingkindness practices
  • Guided weekly practices that incorporate neuroscience, somatic psychology, therapeutic yoga, and spiritual principles
  • And much more...

Arielle is a leading pioneer in trauma therapy whose integrative approach blends neuroscience, somatic psychology, therapeutic yoga, parts work, and spiritual principles.

Her passion comes from her own healing journey. Having resolved her childhood trauma and chronic illnesses, she’s now dedicated to guiding others who struggle with anxiety, dissociation, panic attacks, depression, chronic pain, self-harm, or feeling stuck in post-traumatic stress.

She’s back by popular demand, and we’re honored she’s teaching her fourth course with The Shift Network.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational course, Arielle will guide you through the fundamental skills and competencies you’ll need to successfully move from scarcity into abundance by healing your familial wounds.

Weekly Sessions Tuesdays at 1:00pm Pacific

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Arielle. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to transform and heal collective and generational traumatic wounds so you can live a life of freedom, joy, peace, and self-acceptance now.

Module 1: Begin to Break the Cycle of Generational Wounds So You Can Let Go of Feelings of Fear & Scarcity (July 2)


As your journey through this course begins, you’ll define generational trauma and explore beliefs rooted in fear and scarcity that have been based down through generations.

When left unaddressed, these beliefs can impact your sense of self, your health, or even your financial success.

Arielle will guide you to explore whether your worth is tied to your achievements and help you to break the cycle so you can know deep inside that your self-worth is inherent, not earned.

In this opening module, you’ll explore:

  • How to recognize collective and transgenerational trauma, and discover how these legacy traumas impact you
  • Ways to begin healing and releasing these burdens of your past
  • How to move away from scarcity towards abundance
  • Ways to silence your inner critic so you can fully accept yourself
  • A guided visualization practice to free yourself from limiting narratives that inhibit your growth

Module 2: Nourish Your Ancestral Roots to Boost Your Health & Resilience and Open to New Possibilities (July 9)


Arielle will guide you to focus on building the fertile ground for your health and resilience.

You’ll build your capacity to skillfully attend to the pain of the past while opening yourself up to new possibilities for your future.

You’ll work with family photographs, sacred objects, and family traditions to honor your ancestors’ legacy and clear the unfinished business of the past.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover techniques that help you cope with difficulty
  • Attend to the pain of the past as it arises in the present
  • Move out of pain to a world filled with new possibilities
  • Create a family altar to honor your legacy, and write a letter to an ancestor during a guided practice

Module 3: Understand the Origins of Your Generational Trauma Through Your Attachment Style Free Yourself From Toxic Relationship Patterns (July 16)


You’ll explore the relationship patterns that have been passed down across generations. Arielle will guide you to explore your roots of generational trauma by understanding your attachment style.

As Arielle will explain, attachment trauma comes from a rupture in the bonding process between a child and their primary caregiver. Its effects can last well into adulthood.

You’ll learn the practices that can transform attachment trauma, fostering relational success to promote wellness in your personal life and strengthen the legacy you leave behind.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Free yourself from relationship patterns that no longer serve you
  • Discover what your attachment style says about your collective past
  • Learn the ABCs of healthy attachment
  • Practice nervous system regulation strategies and embodied resources that promote nourishing connections with yourself and others

Module 4: Movement Practices for Intergenerational Healing to Set You Free From Your Past (July 23)


Recognize how symptoms of anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress might be linked to your ancestors.

Discover why embodiment is an essential key to healing.

Embodiment recognizes that what we think and feel influences how we move in the world, and how we move in the world influences how we think and feel. This bi-directional feedback loop shapes our perceptions of ourselves and the world.

Our familial, social, and cultural norms guide patterns of emotional expression and behavior. As Arielle will explain, embodiment is socially and culturally determined.

Embodiment is cultivated through reflective awareness of sensations in the present moment. You’ll explore movement practices to free yourself from the ties that bind you to your past.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn the science of intergenerational memories
  • Understand epigenetics and legacy trauma
  • Empower yourself through somatic practices for healing your past
  • Experience a guided embodiment practice

Module 5: Mindful Grieving and the Collective Body Practicing Forgiveness to Set Yourself Free From Trauma Wounds (July 30)


Grief typically sits at the heart of all trauma recovery, including generational and collective trauma wounds.

Arielle will explain the art of mindful grieving and attending to those wounds with compassion and lovingkindness practices geared toward healing the wounds of the past.

While forgiveness is often a delicate topic, it’s one that can support a greater degree of freedom when it comes to ancestral trauma.

You’re invited to engage in forgiveness as a gift to yourself.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Cultivate transgenerational empathy
  • Receive support to let go of legacy burdens
  • Explore forgiveness practices to free yourself from the past
  • Discover the transformational power of compassion and lovingkindness with a guided practice

Module 6: Access the Ancestor Effect to Help Create Meaning & Purpose in Your Life (August 6)


Research indicates that when people actively reflect on family history, they then experience a boost in cognitive performance.

In an Austrian study, “The Ancestor Effect,” university students who were asked to think about their ancestral roots produced higher scores on problem solving and intelligence tests when compared to students thinking about random historical events.

In this module, you’ll learn how knowledge of your past helps you create meaning and purpose in your life now.

As you’ll discover, therapeutic journaling has been widely researched and has been shown to support your health and wellbeing. Arielle will guide you through a writing practice designed to cultivate transgenerational resilience.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover the Ancestor Effect and awaken transgenerational resilience
  • Explore how to foster wellbeing across generations
  • Participate in a guided therapeutic journaling practice that incorporates the Ancestor Effect

Module 7: Defining the Future So You Can Live in Alignment With Your Core Values (August 13)


Ideally, the outcome of any trauma recovery process is a greater sense of your own resilience and the potential for post-traumatic growth.

As this 7-week journey comes to a close, Arielle will guide you to reflect on the strength and wisdom that you’ve gained as a result of your courageous engagement with this course.

Arielle will share practices for helping you explore the legacy you wish to leave behind you as you take responsibility for your emotional wake and mindfully reflect upon the impact you can have on the world around you.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand key factors associated with resilience
  • Define Post Traumatic Growth and identify what supports it
  • Increase your ability to be a healing presence for others as you strengthen a coherent sense of yourself and your impact on others
  • Live in alignment with your core values to create a meaningful life today with a special closing guided practice

“I have experienced the feeling of awakening and joy for the first time in many years, after being in what I now know as a state of collapse.”

I have experienced the feeling of awakening and joy for the first time in many years, after being in what I now know as a state of collapse. The course helped me to couple or balance the feelings of fear and anxiety that hold me back from becoming the person I know I am, with the emotions of safety/excitement necessary to move forward. The neuroscience backing the information in this course was critical for my Western brain to understand how the vagus nerve works, and its role in my own personal psychology.
