Freeing and Healing the Ancestors and Others



March 16-17, 2024 - Working with the Ancestors     10am- 5pm

"Healing Inter-generational Trauma"


April 20-21, 2024 - Working with the Others  - those who are not related  to us   10am-5pm



This workshop takes you to new depths in the world of spirit influence on the living - both Ancestral (those who are related to us) and the Others (those who are not).   You'll not only experience your own healing, but you'll also learn how to work with clients. Be ready for a life-changing experience!

Freeing the Ancestors and others teaches a loving way to help those who have remained earthbound and are "trapped" to experience compassionate healing and a return to their loved ones for reintegration and healing.  

Finding spirits is the work of some, but helping to heal them is an act of great service.  It will shift them, those around them, those in their families and the land or buildings they have been stuck  that leaves all feeling much “lighter” afterward and able to move forward.



In Shamanism, this work falls under the categories of Psychopomp, Extraction, and Soul Retrieval and are key skills in healing work.

Basic Shamanic Journeying Part I is highly recommended, but not required, but it will give you a greater understanding and working knowledge of the material we're covering. And yes, you can always take it later. 

Learn how to work with clients in a dynamic and therapeutic way to lift the influence of the ancestors and Others. At the same time, you will deepen your own spiritual connection and experience your own healing through helping to release the influence of the ancestors in your own life and in the lives of your family lineage.


This class is open to and relevant to those in the healing fields  who would like to work with clients  or spirits in a therapeutic manner.  

You will learn:

  • How to identify when Ancestral influence is present

  • How the ancestors work through the living.

  • The role trauma and emotional, spiritual, physical and mental wounds play in soul fragmentation

  • What soul fragmentation is and how it happens

  • How to heal and reintegrate soul fragments

  • How to safely, lovingly and compassionately help them cross over

  • How to safely, lovingly and compassionately resolve long held issues that keep them earthbound

  • How to lovingly help them leave the client

  • In addition, you will receive at least one session from Patty by way of class demonstration (value $325)

  • Psychotherapists (MFT, LCSW, LPC, MA)

  • Psychologists / Psychiatrists

"I recently completed "Freeing the Ancestors and Others" workshop series with Patty  and cannot say enough about it.  Over years of learning about energy and spiritual healing, there are some courses that have led to a profound paradigm shift in my work and life.  This is one such course.  It was both powerfully healing and incredibly illuminating experience for me, and it has also been very healing for my family.  This can be sensitive work, and I am forever grateful to have found a trustworthy, safe practitioner and teacher in Patty."

Weekend 1 - Freeing and Healing the Ancestors

On the first weekend we will work with the Ancestors.  Ancestors want their stories known. They want their descendants to know of their struggles and what happened to them. Some are happy and some are unhappy.  Some have stayed with one of their descendants.  When they do, they bring along "unplanned issues." They want to move on and they want you to help them! They want you to hear their story and resolve any conflict that has kept them with the living. Help guide them into the Light.

Weekend 2 - Freeing and Healing the Others

On the second weekend we will work with everyone who isn't an ancestor. The skills are similar to working with Ancestors but with some added twists. Most of all, the non-ancestors are in need of a tremendous amount of deep compassion.

Students often find this the most profound of all of the healing experiences because it takes them to a new depth of compassion as well as love. It also helps confirm for them why their path as a healer is so important in the larger scheme of things...and we are ALL healers, are we not?

Preparing for the Class

Basic Shamanic Journeying is highly recommended, but not required. Journeying gives you a greater understanding of what we are talking about when we discuss movement of the soul between different worlds and planes of existence.  Journeying also grounds you and gives you a container within which to do this work safely with awareness and deliberation.   In addition journeying teaches you how to safely access happy and healthy spirit guides and helpers.  If you can't do it prior to the class, you are urged to pick it up after the class.  It will make a lot of things make more sense

Create a rough Family Tree

Prior to the class, find out a bit about your own ancestors and prepare a rough family tree with parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, great grandparents. 


We'll be discussing what to do with this family tree on the Group Call prior to the workshop. We'll be marking this up so use a good size paper  (11x14 or larger) so you will have room to write next to each name.

The Altar:

You can bring any items you'd like to add to our Ancestral Altar, photos, keepsakes, jewelry, any such items that may have come down through the family line.


The fee for both weekends and four group Zoom calls is $950.

"Working with the Ancestors and Others" Group Calls and Practice Days

Registration includes 4 Group Zoom Calls: 

A lot of our learning comes from practice once you learn the basics. You'll learn what works and what doesn't, how to keep your balance and stay grounded. 

Discussing techniques helps everyone learn how to approach different types of situations, which are vast and varied and require experience, intuition, compassion, strength of character, balance, and knowledge.

Supervised Practice Days and Mentoring

Because this work requires a high level of skill and experience prior to working with clients, supervised practice days will be offered as desired by the class. This work also has an added benefit of being something that can be done remotely so practice sessions can be done both in person and on Zoom.

Attendance is optional but highly encouraged if you are wanting to successfully offer this to clients. 

Students are also encouraged to work with each other outside of class and do trade sessions either in person or on Zoom.  Students will be asked to report on 4 or 5 sessions so we can discuss techniques used and sticking points. A lot of the learning comes from trial and error, so the calls become a huge part of the learning curve.

In addition, private mentoring is also available.


If the group or part of the group is interested, we can arrange an additional one or two day Workshop for further skill building and to help integrate the material.
