Reclaiming What Has Been Lost
Note: after three years of beauty and healing, this circle has evolved into the Witchy Healer Wisdom School. If you are called to this work, check out WHWS to see if it is a fit for you.
- Have you noticed stuck, unhealthy patterns in your life that you want to shift and heal?
- Do you habitually feel anxious or overwhelmed?
- Do you struggle with setting boundaries and tend to put others first to your own detriment?
- Have you noticed a tendency to self-sabotage, to play small, or to not speak your truth?
- Do you experience outsider syndrome – a deep sense of being alone and that you don’t belong?
If so, it is unlikely that these patterns started with you, in your lifetime. Rather, it is likely that the pain, the stuck patterns, the confusion you experience was also experienced by those who lived before you… your ancestors.
Focusing simply on our own personal healing journey, on our own unresolved pain, is not enough.
It is crucial to take into consideration the unresolved pain and trauma experienced by our ancestors as well. As we are our ancestors, and they are us, in order for us to fully heal and be able to live the lives we desire, their pain must also be fully resolved.
Healing the wounds of their past.
Fortunately, healing the wounds of the past generations is not extraordinarily difficult. It begins with consciously engaging the support and guidance of the older, wise, deeply at peace ancestors of our lineages.
From there, as the pain our ancestors were unable to resolve while living begins to transform, we open the doorway to unimaginable depths of love, support, and belonging for ourselves. We begin to find our place in the world, to live our gifts, and to embody our sacred purpose (our reason for being alive, here, now, in these times).
Reclaiming what has been lost.
What are we reclaiming through this healing work? We’re reclaiming:
- a deep connection with our ancestors including direct communication with them;
- our intuitive and visioning capabilities along with our ability to trust what we sense;
- the gifts and blessings of our blood lineages that have been (up until now) distorted by unresolved pain and trauma;
- a deep sense of belonging (and of knowing where we come from);
- an ability to know/embody our gifts and to live our purpose.
In summary, as the burdens and dysfunctions that live in our ancestral lines transform, we simultaneously discover and reclaim the full gifts and strengths of our now healthy and vibrant lineages.
The Virtual Ancestral Healing Circle
This virtual ancestral healing circle offers the opportunity for ongoing tending of your blood lineages through 1) monthly community ritual; and 2) group mentoring calls.
Over the course of six months, we meet monthly for both a 2-hour ancestral healing ritual following the methodology developed by Dr. Daniel Foor* and for a 1-hour group mentoring call. Private 1:1 work is available simultaneously for a reduced rate at the level that best supports you.
*no previous experienced with this method required.
What: six two-hour monthly rituals for directly engaging in ancestral healing work in community + monthly group mentorship calls + priority scheduling for 1:1 support (not included in the monthly rate).
Who: BOTH those new to ancestral healing work AND experienced ancestral ritualists seeking ongoing opportunities to connect with and tend their lineages in community.
When: the circles are monthly on the 3rd or 4th Wednesday of the month from 10am-12pm Pacific. The mentoring calls are on the 1st or 2nd Wednesday of the month from 11am-12pm Pacific.
Where: online via zoom video conferencing. The rituals are recorded (audio mp3) for later participation; however, live attendance is strongly encouraged.
Circle membership includes:
- six 2-hr healing circles (1/month);
- monthly (6 total) Ancestral Healing Conversations (Q&A/mentoring calls);
- personalized ritual homework;
- prioritized email support along with the invitation to send me weekly updates;
- complementary entry into any virtual seasonal rituals I offer during your membership;
- the Embodiment, Boundaries & the Ancestors online class recordings;
- private group forum NOT on facebook – YAY!
- priority scheduling for Ambling Sessions if additional support via a 1:1 session is desired.
Note #1: As I am deeply invested both in the healing of your lineages AND in your own well-being and integration of the work, this ritual-circle requires a 6-month commitment and the number of participants is limited to 8.
Note #2: if you are new to ancestral healing work, you will receive an introductory mini audio course guiding you through assessing the wellness of your lineages and choosing an ancestral line of focus (to be completed prior to your first circle).
How does the ancestral healing circle work?
A couple of days prior to our gathering, I’ll send you an email asking where you are in your ancestral healing work. You’ll send me an update and then I’ll send you your next step in the process.
Then, we will gather for our ritual. I’ll offer an inclusive, non-dogmatic prayer/invocation. Once within ritual space, we will have time for 2-3 group visioning/ancestral healing sessions. In between visioning sessions, there will be space for brief sharing in community along with guidance for where to place your attention for the next visioning session.
Following the ritual, you will receive another email from me inviting any additional sharing you’d like to have witnessed. Additionally, I’ll offer guidance and ritual homework so you can continue this healing work in between our circles.
What are Ancestral Healing Conversations?
Every month, you will be invited to join me in my virtual office to ask any questions or to share your experience of the work in more depth.
As the monthly healing circles are ritually oriented, there is not a lot of time/space for dialogue or specific questions. Therefore, these Q&A calls offer the opportunity for me to answer your questions in depth and for more discussion and direct mentoring to take place.
Depending on how many show up for these calls (often less than for the healing circle and varying from month to month) there is the possibility of fine-tuning your visioning work or for support through a particularly sticky aspect of your lineage 1:1.
These calls also allow you to receive guidance along specific themes of interest or relevance to you. Previous calls have been oriented to altar work and offering practices, working with grief, titrating goodness, embodying specific lineage gifts, ancestral research, etc. The options are endless and dependent on what you are needing/desiring.
You want to join this virtual ancestral healing circle? That’s great!
What happens next depends on whether or not we have already worked together.
If we have NOT yet worked together…
…use this form below to reach out.
I’ll respond via email with a link to schedule a free 15-minute consultation. During this time, we’ll talk about what you are hoping to receive through being a part of this healing circle and determine if my work is, indeed, a good fit for you at this time.
Please note: this form can be used to ask any questions you may have as well!
If we HAVE already worked together…
…simply send me an email (you can use the form above) and let me know you want in and then I’ll send you the link to the official registration and payment page.
As our ancestors heal, we heal. As the pain and stuck spirits in our lineages transform, there is the opportunity for the pain and stuck patterns in our lives to transform as well.
This is truly a life-changing path filled with so much beauty and so many gifts. I’m beyond excited to be on this healing path with you! <3
Larisa Noonan has specialized for nearly two decades in trauma healing, embodiment skills, and supporting healthy boundaries. She weaves ritual and nature reconnection into all of her offerings and is passionate about ancestral healing, supporting grief and loss, recovery from religious fundamentalism, and work with chronic pain/illness. She lives with her husband and son in Oregon’s Willamette Valley on the ancestral homelands of Kalapuya and Santiam. Her ancestors are from France, the Netherlands via Ukraine, Germany, and Switzerland and her work/life is rooted in earth-honoring ritual, embodying ancestral gifts, and reclaiming animist values.
Thanks for witnessing Larisa,
From D A R K N E S S T O L I G H T -- this past year was rough and tumble filled with terrifying and challenging situations. At the time I couldn’t imagine there was anything good about this difficult time. But now I see...
The beauty in this was that it sent me running into the arms of angelic ancestral healing guide, Larisa Noonan. I had begun ancestral healing work with Daniel Foor, but I was gripped by fear of other dimensions in light of the above and needed serious help going back “in”.
And so with my hand interlaced tightly in Larisa’s, my journey continued. She ushered me through fear and guided me straight to my own power to establish a clear protective energetic ring. And then Larisa and I returned to finding my ancestral guides, who arrived with softness, support and reassurance of my path along with the healing of my blood lines.
I’ve come to intuit flower and herb medicines and light healing treatments. And I’ve come to know ancient guides, one of which is kindly showing me ocean and land healing modalities. I feel an expansiveness that has me full of joyful purpose amidst the sheer abundance of light bestowed me.
I really appreciate the space that you hold for others to explore their questions and find their own answers. I've found that in ritual space, you consistently offer a mature, grounded, and nurturing presence. I am impressed with your comfort level for whatever may come and I look to that as strength and knowing in rituals that are new to me. Which, now that I write that, sounds funny because every ritual is new, right?! 🙂
Larisa's gifts, I feel, are precisely the salve needed in this culture at this time. She holds a great deal of power with such gentleness. She is very grounded, rooted, present. She works with a great deal of compassion and empathy. A sweetness comes through her work, which is so soothing.
Larisa is very connected spiritually and also is able to translate that through in very practical ways. She is able to hold space in sessions, making way for a person's gifts to flourish. She's an extraordinary listener. I highly recommend Larisa. Working with Larisa brings about growth, healing, an increase of self love. Her medicine, I believe, is made of love.
Larisa created a safe space for me to dive into the relationship with my ancestors. She laid the foundation by offering a solid understanding to engage in this relationship and she embodied the simpleness and the truth of this natural communion so wonderfully.
I'm very grateful that our paths have crossed. What for me personally was very important is that we did not just work in the spiritual realm we started and even in between the exercises we anchored in the body. That's what makes it a real human experience.
If you are looking for a safe, real and tangible approach to transform your past into a brighter future I absolutely recommend working with Larisa!
