Your Family's War Journey: A Transformational Master Class

Hosted by Jennifer Holik, Ancestral Souls and WWII Research & Writing Center

The first step on your transformation journey begins

Start your journey to the past and transform your life...

Journey with Jennifer as your travel guide, through your family's history, their military stories, and your own story. On this journey you will read a life-changing book.

Together with a core group of people, we will discuss issues and emotions around the themes of war, religion, women's themes, spirituality, family, stories, patterns, trauma, inherited trauma, racism, LGBTQ, caregiver issues, secrets, shame, guilt, PTSD, and many other topics that come from the book, my questions, and your experiences.

We will discuss various ways to heal the issues that arise through this deep research and writing we do and with what emerges in our personal lives.

You will explore your family’s history and dive into who you are with this knowledge. You will even begin to write your own stories.

We will use the book "Reconciliation with War" by Janelle Kaye and Charles Willshire as a foundation to transformation. You are required to purchase the book. Details are in the confirmation email you receive upon registration.

While this book focuses on the WWII experience, the themes and exercises discussed apply to any war, any ancestral pattern or trauma, and every family. You will be able to take this knowledge and apply to many aspects of your personal life and ancestral lineage healing practice.


"This class enriched and transformed my World War II family research quest in ways I could not have imagined. Jennifer Holik is a gifted facilitator who helped me to unearth memories, make unexpected connections between past and present, and clarify the direction of my WWII project. Her extensive knowledge and rare intuition, along with the well-organized curriculum, created a warm and productive virtual environment for learning and sharing insights with a wonderful group of participants. As I move forward, I plan to make frequent use of the generous amount of helpful materials that the course makes available to view or download following the sessions. I highly recommend this class to all who are drawn to discovering and understanding how war and its aftermath have affected them and their loved ones. "

"Your Family's War Journey Masterclass with Jennifer Holik was the perfect way for me to understand the context and importance of my lifelong desire to write about my uncle's World War II service and to get me writing! The tools and technologies were state of the art, and I can say that having successfully taught graduate classes for 20 years in nationally accredited programs. Maybe best of all is Jennifer's insight, encouragement, and vast store of connections to pursue answers. I would encourage anyone with a WWII story to pursue, to get on board here! "

Meet Your Guide, Jennifer Holik

Jennifer Holik, founder and Worldwide Coordinator of the World War II Research and Writing Center and Ancestral Souls. Watch a short video about Jennifer’s work and mission.

I am an intuitive healer, empath, and medium on a mission to help people Find the Answers to their family and military histories. Discovering the true stories of our families allow for family patterns, inherited trauma, and secrets to rise. This provides an opportunity to take a deeper look at our research and families to allow for healing and closure.

For more than 20 years I have studied genealogical records. For over a decade I have studied every branch of the military and their records for World War II. I am the original authority on how to find the answers, even if the records burned for military research for World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam. I was the first to create the educational materials, books, live speaking, webinars, and online courses, to teach others the strategies. While I no longer teach these strategies, you can find my webinars and online courses on the WWII Education website.

I am in a unique position to help clients because I understand both the genealogy and military records and what information, secrets, patterns, inherited trauma, feelings, and emotions they may share. Through a decade of study in many aspects of ancestral lineage healing, energy healing modalities, inherited trauma, PTSD, grief & loss, caregiving, and spirituality, I now help clients process what comes up through the research in facilitation sessions. You can learn more about this side of my business on the Ancestral Souls website and the linked course website, Finding the Answers Journey.

I look forward to working with you to discover the true stories of your family.


"If you are involved at all with trying to follow and understand your family's journey related to loved ones who served in the military, I highly recommend working with Jennifer. Jennifer is passionate about helping people with their journey--whether is it doing research, trying to understand the impact on the family, or putting thoughts and findings to pen and paper. All of the webinars I have participated in have been fun, interesting, and useful. For over 20 years I have been trying to learn about my uncle who was MIA in Europe during WWII. At first, I thought my quest was to learn all the facts and details about where he was, what he did, and what happened to him. What I have started doing along the way--and why I appreciate Jennifer so much--is delving into the equally compelling and more important story about the impact of my uncle's loss on the family. In many cases, I knew things from my own memories and previous conversations with relatives that I had not connected to the war. After going through a Master Class with Jennifer based on the book Reconciliation with War, I was able to connect the dots and get a much better picture of what the collective family had been going through. Jennifer is now helping me edit the draft of a book about my uncle's story and the impact on the family. I greatly appreciate her insight and expertise. Besides being knowledgable, Jennifer is friendly, warm, and genuine. I enjoy working with her and now consider her a good friend. "
