Whiteness Is Not an Ancestor:
Essays on Life and Lineage by white Women
edited and foreword written by Lisa Iversen, MSW, LCSW
For over two decades, family constellations facilitator and therapist Lisa Iversen has been working with groups, including descendants of ancestors who have perpetrated harm or been victimized in circumstances of injustice. Here she brings together a collection of twelve essays written by white women who are cultivating consciousness regarding the role of whiteness in collective movements of immigration, colonialism, slavery, and war. Their stories disentangle themes of innocence, grief, race, privilege, boundaries, and belonging in their families and ancestries.
Essays written by Sonya Lea, Karin Konstantynowicz, Anne Hayden, Summer Starr, Kate Regan, June BlueSpruce, Sabine Olsen, Carole Harmon, Christina Greené, Sharon Halfnight, Una Suseli O'Connell, and Pam Emerson.
Edited and foreword written by Lisa Iversen. Edited by Lisa Whipple. Cover and interior design by Olivia Croom Hammerman (Indigo: Editing, Design, and More).
Whiteness Is Not an Ancestor: Essays on Life and Lineage by white Women is available in the US, Canada, UK, and regions served by the Ingram distribution network.
Lisa Iversen, MSW, LCSW, lives in the Pacific Northwest where she directs the Center for Ancestral Blueprints. She is the author of the book, Ancestral Blueprints: Revealing Invisible Truths in America’s Soul.
"It is my hope that we are on the way to greater change, to respect the dignity and worth of every human being...You cannot stop the call of history. We are ready to continue to move forward. We are one people...all a part of one human family...We must do it...create a society at peace with itself...the way of love is a better way."
Congressman John Lewis
We all have ancestors, all are descendants & future ancestors. Sounds like we have a lot in common.
