Ancestral Lineage Healing Workshop (Steps 3-5)
This workshop is complete. Subscribe here to be notified of upcoming events.
WHAT: an evening + day-long 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 either the February or March introductory workshop here in Sandpoint and/or previous experience in some other way with this method of ancestral healing.
WHEN: May 13 and 14, 2022 (5:00-7:30pm Friday; 9:30am-4:30pm Saturday)
WHERE: A Therapeutic Community Space
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 and decolonization work.
There is space for 10 participants total.
Option 1: $__ deposit + Pay What You Can/Want (trade/barter available; reach out!)
Option 2: $__ in full or three monthly payments of $__
How To Register (2 steps):
STEP 1: Choose your method of payment:
OPTION 1: Pay-what-you-can: This is how I invite you to pay. This means you will make a $__ deposit to confirm your spot. This is refundable up until two weeks before the event. After that, it is not.
Then, at the end of the weekend, you can pay whatever feels right on top of that. Whatever you offer is perfect. There’s no minimum. There’s no maximum. Truly. If the $__ deposit is too much, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out.
I’m also open to trade/barter. 🙂
Are you a skilled craftsperson, farmer/gardener, hunter, jeweler, goat-tender, beekeeper, childsitter, etc??? Let’s talk!
OPTION 2: Pay for the workshop/ritual upfront ($125): I offer this option because pay-what-you-can is deeply unsettling to some people. If this is you and you’d rather have the money all settled before we start, I invite you to pay $___ upfront.
OPTION 3: Payment plan for $___: Again, if pay-what-you-can feels uncomfortable to you but $___ is a bit much all at once, another option is to make three monthly payments of $__.
***To be very clear: if you choose PWYC, you are not expected to pay anywhere close to $___. This is a legitimate PWYC offering. I want this work to be accessible and sustainable for you.***
STEP 2: enter your name and email into the form below.
That’s it! Thank you!
