Foundational Ritual Skills and Ancestral Healing
This course is for those who wish to begin developing, or continue to develop, foundational ritual skills: intuitive perception, the creation of sacred space, intentional speech, boundaries and protection, and how to be in mutually beneficial relationship with the animistic world.
As these skills are deeply rooted in our ancestries, and yet often diminished through historic changes in cultural orientation, we will be developing these ritual skills within the context of ancestral healing and communication with the wise and well ancestors of our lineages. The healing of ancestral blocks can enhance intuitive skills, fortify boundaries, and provide a natural connection with affinity spirits and animist ritual practices. Through contact with the well ancestors, participants can receive individual guidance for ritual skill development as you learn about how your people held these practices and how they may be applied in a meaningful way today.
This course includes five live classes and three private ancestral lineage healing sessions. In the private sessions I will guide you in making contact with your wise and well ancestors and getting started with ancestral lineage healing. The ancestral healing sessions will complement the course material by providing a context in which to develop your ritual skills; and the classes will include input from the well ancestors.
This is a live, experiential on-line class. We will be using the Zoom conferencing platform, accessible from computers, tablets, or phones. Technology permitting – classes will be recorded but recordings are not guaranteed and are not substitutes for regular attendance.
Rate: $440 for five classes and three private sessions, payable in two installments of $220. Payment 1 is due by the registration deadline, Sept 9th. Payment 2 is due October 7th. Participants are also encouraged to attend two ancestral lineage healing monthly circles, which are offered to participants in this class for free for the duration of this course.
