This workshop takes you to new depths of your own self in order to help your Ancestors heal.  Be ready for a life-changing experience.

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


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.



...and the Others

On the second weekend we will work with everyone who isn't an ancestor. The skills are similar with some added twists and needing a great amount of compassion.

Preparing for the Class

Basic Shamanic Journeying is highly recommended, but not required, because it gives you a foundation as to the nature of the soul's ability to travel between the worlds and what those worlds are. It also grounds you and gives you a container within which to do this work safely.  It also In addition journeying teaches you how to safely access happy and healthy spirit guides and helpers. 

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.

Follow up Practice with

Group Calls and Practice Days

Group 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.

4 Group calls are included in the class fee.

Supervised Practice Days and Mentoring

Because this work requires a high level of skill and experience prior to working with clients, supervised practice days or weekends will be offered as desired by the class.

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 if they can arrange it. 

In addition, private mentoring is also available.


If the group or part of the group is interested, we can organize an additional one or two day Workshop to help integrate the material.
