Ancestral Lineage Healing Retreat (Ubud, Bali, Indonesia)

April 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - April 28, 2019 @ 3:00 pm WIB

This ancestral lineage healing intensive will be held at the beautiful Rahasia Manis Retreat Center north of Ubud. Each day will also include teachings by different Balinese religious specialists with an emphasis on ancestor reverence and ritual. Expect excellent locally-sourced food/meals and options to commute for local residents. More details and registration coming soon…

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 Dr. Foor’s book, Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing.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. The training will be a trauma-aware, multicultural ritual container that embraces the relationship of ancestral engagement with cultural healing and decolonization work. Those with a healing arts practice will learn new skills to support your work.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Balinese-led efforts to support cultural resilience and sovereignty.
