Rediscover the Wisdom of Ancestors and Nature

Aamirah teaches classes and facilitates rituals at the East Coast Village in upstate New York. 

Welcome to the Ancient Wisdom Method

The Ancient Wisdom Method is not an academic program, but a process to awaken ancestral wisdom within the heart of modernity. Since it was launched, AWM was a calling to together those who feel a deep commitment to the challenging work of grounding their lifeways in a state of indigenous consciousness; to recover their ancestral memory as a rallying cry against the dehumanizing grip of modern life.

Why the Ancient Wisdom Method?  

We are currently enveloped in broken system built on the fallacies of progress - what my teacher, renowned author and Dagara Elder Malidoma Somé, calls the “machine culture” - one which “eats at the psyche and moves its victims faster and faster along, as they are progressively emptied of their spiritual and psychic fuel.”  (from Ritual: Power, Healing and Community).

As Westerners raised in an era of "progress and productivity", we often long for a deeper sense of connection to others, and to the simplicity of the natural world. As a lifelong spiritual seeker, I understand this longing, which is why I created this platform as a safe space to break down the walls of separation, division and disconnection.

As we stand as witnesses (or victims) to cultural and political divisions; to climatic imbalances; to personal loss and trauma, surely you must be asking yourself – is this really progress? What can I do to be part of the change so desperately needed?

In response to that call, I am honored and excited to share the Ancient Wisdom Method, inspired by indigenous spirit technology of Africa.

Please consider this an invitation to embark on a heroic journey of transformation, for yourself, your families, and your communities - to make peace with the past, to live joyfully in the present and build hope for the future – one wisdom circle at a time.

What Students Say...

So many things fell into place from hearing Aamirah’s words that I felt healed, forgave my mother for not being able to give me the medicine woman up bringing I needed.

  • Class Participant

I loved my class! I wish we could have class every week all the time forever. You're an excellent teacher, Aamirah!

  • Class Participant

I took this class years ago, now I've learned so much more! Especially connecting with the elements in a whole different way.

Transformation Ahead...

recover your Ancestral wisdom

We extend a welcome bridge between the ancient and the modern. Many have been disconnected from their tribe of origin, often seeking a revival through "new-age" ceremonies and neo-shamanic traditions. Regardless of the gateway you enter, ancestral and nature-based wisdom is every person's birthright. I have seen lost ancestral memory recovered and post-modern traditions established when ancestors and nature are invoked!

mend your wounded soul

In the interest of decolonizing the mind, it becomes necessary to examine the breaking points in our blood lines — those wounded places where our ancestors may have suffered loss of connection to place, community, language, traditions, and culture - which have been unknowingly passed down to us, replaying as physical, emotional, and mental dis-ease within each of us. I have seen the transformation on a physical, emotional and spiritual level as a result of reconnecting with ancestors and nature!

regain your gifts & purpose

For those whose indigenous roots have long been forgotten or suppressed, this an opportunity to recover the memory in your DNA; to revivify traces of ancestral wisdom within your lineage. It will be a journey to remove the masks used to cover up your authentic calling and purpose; to reshape your identity and restore ancient gifts hidden within your bones. I have seen new calling pursued when hidden gifts are recognized!

This Is The Power Of Ancestors And Nature.
