The Ancestor Healing Ritual is one where we come together as community to collectively Remember our people, to honor and help our family members that have since left this reality. We pray to grieve enough that we can Together generate energy to guide some of them home. We feel them, and experience what they feel. If they are not well- stuck between worlds,our lives are affected. We carry their blessings, we carry their sacrifices, we carry their pain and if they are ghosts we carry Them- literally.
Modern times have lead most of us away from properly grieving our dead. Wars, mass killings… left many many many of our kins spirits not grieved for and thus they linger. We all come from cultures that once had grand ceremonies, grand rituals for when someone died. We all come from cultures that once understood it’s the responsibility of the family, the tribe, the village to help in the process of moving spirits along. Behind your pain, shame, repressed willingness to go deep into Who You Come From -you know this to be true. And we can begin to engage in our own process enough to choose to participate in helping our ancestors. Without them we would not be…
I was blessed to receive this ritual from Malidoma Some. He adapted it from his peoples elaborate funeral rites for folks in the West. It’s here we create a space where your ancestors can feel held by you, where you honor who you come from. We all have eclectic, different ancestral lineages and this is a place to allow and love all of the parts of yourself, as you are connected to all of them. A place to honor your lineages, to honor the people who toiled, grieved and whose blood flows through you now. To give back to them through ritual with the understanding that this helps them, you and those yet to come.
We will gather via zoom for 1 class, 2 hours, prior to ritual to help you dig into your ancestry, culture in preparation for ritual. I will offer guidance on how to explore who and where you come from.
This is a 3 day, 2 night ritual where the first night we hold a vigil, sun down to sun up- grieving, praying, holding energy for the ancestors to transition. It is where we hold powerful space all night with the deep hope some will see the flames and move toward their forbearers. There is preliminary work to do, so if you are feeling the call to this- make hast and commit. This is done in community, it can not be done alone… They wait for you to help them.
