- How did your ancestors honor and celebrate the equinox, this time of light/dark, inner/outer balance?
- What wisdom might they have for you with regards to living in a time of deep pain and heart-rending beauty?
- What might you discover about yourself through a day spent in ritual and making art with your ancestors?
In the morning…
The morning will be devoted to learning why it’s important to be in relationship with your ancestors and the benefits of doing ancestral healing work.
Then we will move into a guided meditation where you will meet a fully well, wise, and loving ancestor. From there, we will drop-in a second time and you’ll have the opportunity to learn how your people interacted with and celebrated the seasons – in this case, the autumnal equinox specifically.
Further, you will have a chance to inquire into how your people walked the line of grief/celebration, of light/dark, of living in a world filled with both so much pain and such deep joy and beauty.
In the afternoon…
In the afternoon we will use the process of SoulCollage®* to bring our ancestral experiences of the morning into visual imagery for blessings and healing.
*SoulCollage® is a creative intuitive process of exploring your inner landscape and discovering the mysteries of your Soul (and lineage) by creating 5” x 8” cards — visual reminders of who you really are, what you love, honor and believe.

More about Ancestral Healing and SoulCollage®:
Ancestral Healing and Ritual:
The unresolved pain and trauma flowing from our ancestors to us keeps us stuck, in pain, lost, unable to know our gifts and fully live our purpose.
These wounds from the past have painful, burdensome impact on our lives in the present.
Healing these wounds of the past happens through engaging in ritual with our ancient, wise, deeply well ancestors.
The result is the transformation of the pain and trauma held in our more recent lineages along with the reclaiming of the blessings and gifts including the ancient earth-honoring traditions and rituals of our people.
Through the artistic and soul-reading aspects of SoulCollage® and through learning to use the “I am one who…” or, in the case of Ancestral SoulCollage the phrase of “We are the ones who…” process, we begin to understand more about how our soul and our ancestral lineage is expressing itself through imagery. This understanding can open up a whole new way of thinking and feeling.
Making Ancestral SoulCollage cards is an act of loving compassion and soul/lineage tending.
Through SoulCollage® we journey together to learn more about all the shadow and positive aspects of ourselves, our relationships with others, and our life’s work. We come closer to knowing the unique medicine we bring to our communities.
You are invited!
We warmly invite you to join us for this day of ritual, ancestral connection, trance-work, and SoulCollage®. Questions? Contact Larisa or call or text GG at 503 990-0278.
