Ancestral Connection: Re-Weaving Legacy
When people connect with their earth-based spiritual history, they begin to claim and create a life of sovereignty and interconnected healing. We all have the power within us, lineages of potency connected to source-wisdom, the beings and creatures of the elements, plants, place.
I was told in a dream to offer a class in ancestral connection, which has been my soul work for the past five years. We will explore the potentials of storytelling, genealogy and DNA, but also craft practices to connect with lineage beyond our cultural or familial memory.
According to one model, each of us has in our lineage around six billion ancestors...and that's just from the past 12,000 years.
All of those lives existed to create your life. And the ancestors live on, quite literally, in and through us, shaping our physical and spiritual descendants. Working with the ancestors, learning their stories and myths, their practices and foods, their songs and crafts is an incredible healing.
And ancestors are not simply human. We carry within us the other beings and creatures of this earth. The elements, the wights. We will spend time creating protected channels for ancestral communication, to see who from the human and non-human lineages wishes to speak through you.
This class will be online with four weekly recorded video lectures, downloadable workbook pages, sacred art and writing exercises and live ceremonies of opening and closing. It is nonlinear, and may be joined and cycled through at any time.
On conclusion it will still be available as a self-study course, and when offered again with a live component all enrolled students can audit the new class at no additional charge.
Possible curriculum--still transforming
Week 1: Following the motherline and claiming your true name
Week 2: Healing the lineage patterns, weaving wyrd
Week 3: Wights, land and place-based ancestor work
Week 4: Ancestor reverence, care and tending
