Ancestral Lineage Healing Workshop (Steps 3-5)
Saturday (4-8pm) & Sunday (10-6), Nov 18/19
Note: this workshop has passed. To be notified of when I offer it again (and/or of other local events), join the local Sandpoint events list here:
WHAT: an evening plus full day workshop/ritual to continue the healing of one of your ancestral lines. We’ll be engaging Steps 3-5 of the ancestral lineage healing process – working with the non-remembered dead, the recently passed, and then bringing through the blessings of the now-healed line to the living (including to you!).
WHY & HOW: have you noticed painful or dysfunctional patterns running through your life (or family)? Much of the trouble we experience isn’t just ours but is rooted in our ancestral lineages. To shift these patterns, ancestral healing is needed.
When well, our ancestors offer much needed support and personal+familial healing while encouraging healthy self-esteem and helping us to clarify our destiny, relationships, and work in the world.
Through this workshop/ritual, you 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. Daniel Foor’s book, Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing.
Expect to engage lineage ancestors in heart-centered ritual through prayer/song, deep listening or visioning practices, and group dialogue.
Prerequisite: attendance at any introductory workshop here in Sandpoint and/or previous experience in some other way with this method of ancestral healing (reach out with questions).
WHEN: Nov 18 (4-8pm) and 19 (10am-6pm)
WHERE: The Yellow Room
WHO: You are welcome if you have attended the introductory workshop previously offered here in Sandpoint and/or have previous experience (Steps 1 and 2) in some other way with this method of ancestral healing.
This workshop/ritual will be held within a non-dogmatic, trauma-aware ritual container that embraces the relationship of ancestral engagement with cultural healing.
I’m open to some trade/barter. Are you a skilled craftsperson, farmer/gardener, hunter, beekeeper, etc? Let’s talk. 🙂
