Ancestral Healing Day Long Gathering

Ancestors Tree2

-unknown artist 

Saturday, May 25th 9am-4pm , at Portland School of Astrology

All are welcome for this day long ancestral healing intensive, to be in community and ritual, and begin the healing process with your ancestors.

We will be learning and experiencing the first steps in making an assessment of wellness for our lineages and connecting with a bright ancestor, all part of a framework and approach created by Dr. Daniel Foor (www.ancestralmedicine.org). We will be looking at our four primary lineages (the ones that have the most recent impact on our lives) and taking a look at how well they are in spirit at this moment. We will also be making a connection with a bright and well ancestor on one lineage of focus, to begin to build a connection with this one and all of the blessings they carry.

This gathering is great introduction for anyone who would like to step into this work, anyone who is called to deepen their relationship with their ancestors for individual and collective healing.

Pricing for energy exchange is $95, please be in touch if that prohibits you from attending. Participants are limited to 8, so please reach out if interested! Email me at Saskia@honeyintheheart.org to hold your space.

 

April Ancestral healing circle

remmysfamily_5479892

Hello all,

I have been enjoying the signs of new life with flowers beginning to emerge and tree buds growing as we turn towards spring time. What sweetness this transitional moment brings! Here is a photo of some of my ancestors, farmers just south of Amsterdam. I imagine the closeness they had in relationship to the land there, and how much attunement to the seasons they carried, for it impacted their livelihood in so many ways.

The next ancestral healing circle that I will be holding is at the following date:

April 14th, Sunday, from 10am-12pm

These monthly group rituals are a place to come together and work directly on our practice of ancestral lineage healing, held in the framework of Dr. Daniel Foor’s ancestral lineage repair method. Each ritual meeting is established in culturally neutral prayer and focused on providing ritual community space for your direct visioning with your ancestral guides. Opportunities for supportive sharing and conversation are included in each ritual.

Ancestral Lineage Healing Intensive

34268719_1960657320675402_2367681063578238976_n

Join me  in community and ritual as I support this ancestral healing intensive co-led by Seyta Selter and Larisa Noonan on September 14th-16th in Olympia Washington!

Everyone has loving and wise ancestors, and by reaching out for their support we access tremendous vitality for personal and family healing. In addition to supporting repairs with living family, our ancestors encourage healthy self-esteem and help us to clarify our destiny, relationships, and work in the world.

Participants 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. Foor’s book, Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing. Expect to engage lineage ancestors in heart-centered ritual through prayer/song, visioning practices, and group dialogue. There are no prerequisites, however, prior experience with inner work and relating with spirit guides/teachers are both helpful.

Folks new to ancestor work, adoptees, and those with a tough experience of family are warmly welcome. The training will be a trauma-aware, multicultural ritual container that embraces the relationship of ancestral engagement with cultural healing. Those with a healing arts practice will learn some new skills to support your work.

Spaces are limited, 10am-5pm each day, cost is $400 for the three full days of ritual/training (a few spaces available for reduced cost/scholarship to keep the work accessible, please inquire directly).

Limited rustic camping on-site may be possible (please email seyta@innerlands.org if you are interested camping).

Preregistration and full attendance is requested, and registration is open: https://ancestralmedicine.org/event/olympia-intensive-7-27-2018/

We are strongly committed to keeping the work accessible to people of diverse backgrounds and variable means while also supporting our amazing teachers. If you need financial assistance to be able to join, please see our application for payment plans and partial scholarship spaces at https://ancestralmedicine.org/scholarship-application. If you would like to join us in keeping this work accessible or if you have enjoyed financial assistance previously and now wish to extend this gift to others, please consider a donation to our scholarship fund at https://ancestralmedicine.org/scholarship-fund.

Seyta Selter, MA (Olympia, WA) enjoys working with folks new to trance modalities, often focusing on honing inner perception skills, and believes that relating with the unseen is a natural, enriching aspect of human experience. She is a certified practitioner of ancestral lineage healing, and also practices depth psychology (embodied dreamwork and hypnotherapy) and spiritual counseling in Olympia, WA and online. She has an MA in East-West Psychology, is an adjunct faculty of dream psychology and consciousness studies at the Evergreen State College, and is also Dr. Foor’s assistant. Her ancestors hail from the Jewish diaspora, continental Europe, and the British Isles. For more info see: https://innerlands.org/

Larisa Noonan (Salem, OR) has specialized for nearly two decades in trauma healing, embodiment skills, and supporting healthy boundaries. She is a certified practitioner in ancestral lineage healing and weaves ritual and nature reconnection into all of her offerings. She is passionate about ancestral healing, supporting grief and loss, recovery from religious fundamentalism, and work with chronic pain/illness. She lives with her husband and son in Oregon’s Willamette Valley on the ancestral homelands of Kalapuyan peoples. Her ancestors are from France, the Netherlands via Ukraine, Germany, and Switzerland and her spiritual orientation is rooted in earth-honoring ritual, embodying ancestral gifts, and reclaiming animist values. For more info see: http://www.larisanoonan.com.

We acknowledge this event is taking place in the ancestral lands of the Lushootseed speaking Squaxin Island and Nisqually peoples. Folks whose ancestors are indigenous to this area are welcome to join this event by donation or gifting. We encourage participants to become educated on the history of the land and to support local Native organizations.
