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 early 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. Ritual space will be held in a way that celebrates cultural difference and the relationship of ancestral healing with social justice. Those with a healing arts practice will learn new skills to support your work. Spaces are limited, 10am-5pm each day, cost is $450 for the three full days of ritual/training (some spaces for reduced cost participation, preference given to those new to the work and/or of diverse ancestries, please just talk with me). Preregistration and full attendance requested.
