Everyone has loving and wise ancestors, and by reaching out for their support we access tremendous vitality for personal and family healing. In addition to supporting repairs with living family, our ancestors encourage healthy self-esteem and help us to clarify our destiny, relationships, and work in the world.
Participants will learn to relate safely and directly with family ancestors, both helpful guides and the dead in need of assistance. The work will closely follow Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing (Inner Traditions, publication July 2017). Expect to engage lineage ancestors in heart-centered ritual through prayer/song, visioning practices, and group dialogue. There are no prerequisites, however, prior experience with inner work and relating with spirit guides/teachers are both helpful.
Folks new to ancestor work, adoptees, and those with a tough experience of family are warmly welcome. Those with a healing arts practice will learn new skills to support your work. Spaces are limited, 10am-5pm each day, cost is $400 for the three full days of ritual/training (some flexibility as needed, please just talk with me). Preregistration and full attendance requested. Folks who have attended previous trainings may arrange for partial attendance.
Unlike the Feb 24-26th training in Portland, OR this training is not set up for residential participants, therefore attendees from out of the area are invited to handle their accommodations.
***Important update: As of Feb 8th there are four spaces remaining. If interested, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know a little about your background and draw to the work. Folks considering the practitioner training (Oct 2017), new to the work, or serving diverse populations will get preference***
