    Ep 7: Ancestor Healing Divination with guest Robert Lucas

    in Spirituality

    Join us Thursday Jan 15th 7pm EST (Friday 9am Japanese Time) at Divination Radio with your hosts, Fiona Benjamin (Chinese-American Diviner) and Michael "Uncle Monkey" Lennon (Cartomancer).

    This week we are joined by Robert Lucas, aka Tata Saulembo, who is an ancestral priest in the Bakulu tradition. He will be speaking about his new ancestral divination book and divination set on the air. At the end of the show, he will also be doing readings. This is a show you do not want to miss. 

    The fundamental premise of his practice is that by embracing your own ancestors and spirits first – the unseen beings who are already all around you – you can align to your own deep wellspring of spiritual passion, power and purpose in a way that reflects your unique spiritual fingerprint. If you choose to learn from him, you will gain the most powerful foundation in the deep waters of your own ancestral current possible, an unshakeable rock from which you can then venture forth into almost any other shamanic system known to man with a self-confidence and intuitive inner guidance that that takes most people a lifetime to cultivate. The techniques and processes he teaches aren’t a “religion” – they’re deeper than that. These are the methods that religions themselves are made of – the cross-cultural currents from which gods and spirits themselves are born.
