Ancestral Lineage Healing

Everyone has wise & loving ancestors who are directly accessible and offer deep connection, guidance and healing. Relating with our ancestors provides greater understanding of the intergenerational blessings and burdens we carry, illuminates a sense of purpose and cultivates connection with spirit.  Generally, the ancestors are the collective dead of human history.  More specifically, ancestors are the well, elevated rather than troubled dead.  Working with our wise, well ancestors can support the troubled dead, shift the  vibration of the lineage, transmute intergenerational trauma and brighten the energetic influence of our ancestors on our lives.

Introduction to Ancestral lineage healing  evening

Friday, April 6, 7 – 9:30pm

This is an opportunity to get an introduction to ancestral lineage healing as taught by Dr Daniel Foor. In this intro, we’ll present the foundation of the modality, importance of boundaries and energetic protection and ritually check in with your blood lineages to sense their impact on you.   Our time together includes direct visioning/journeywork with ancestors, song, prayer, heart-centered group dialogue.
(This basic foundation or a one-on-one session is the pre-requisite for joining monthly ancestral healing circles.)


Embodied ancestral healing & ancestral dance ritual
Sat, April 7

Weaving somatic preparations, visioning, dialogue with an ancestral dance ritual, we’ll seek deeper connection, understanding and healing for ourselves and our blood ancestors.

Over the past few years, I’ve been exploring the intersection of embodied healing modalities with ancestral lineage healing. It is my experience that the combination offers an even deeper sense of relationship with and felt sense of resource from the unseen. The mysterious realm of the dead is available when we slow down and listen closely for their whispers. Using sound and breath, we’ll dive a little deeper into the imaginal realms to check in with our lineages to seek liberation for that which is stuck in both realms and lighten our ancestral burdens. The day of ritual will conclude with an ancestral dance and feeding ritual.

This ritual, dedicated to ancestral lineage healing, will include music, movement, visioning, direct relation with wise ancestors, offerings and heart-centered dialogue. Each participant much have had one ancestral lineage healing session (private session or group intro). No dance pre-requisite is needed, just a willingness to be in an extended (75 min) non-verbal, musically held space for enhanced connection, personal & collective healing.

BYO light dinner with an offering for the spirits. We’ll break around 6 to eat together, then dance…
