A meditative guided tarot reading exercise to connect with your ancestors. This video is both a 10-minute meditation and a guided ancestral tarot reading. The companion blog post offers more insights on how to deep-dive into your Ancient Ones 3-card reading:

Ancestral Tarot: Uncover Your Past and Chart Your Future by Nancy Hendrickson and published by Red Wheel Weiser guides you through using tarot to connect with your ancestors, unravel family mysteries, and to help heal multigenerational trauma.

The techniques that this book teaches will help you identify and access ancestral gifts, messages, powers, protectors, and healers, and also help you to navigate your DNA and ethnic heritage.

As Mary K. Greer writes about this book, “This is a tarot book of the very best kind. It is a journey to the self through the spirits of those who’ve come before.”

Hendrickson is a tarot master with over 40 years of experience in the field of genealogy and previously featured in the New York Times. Learn more about her work at
