Bringing to Life Songs of your Lineage: An Ancestor Healing Training

  • Isla de San Cristobal Panama (map)

The main facilitators, Anais Szabo and Liv Wheeler, have created an ancestral healing training for those who are feeling called to facilitate ceremony, the ceremonial leader that would like to support ancestral lineages. Together, we will break down and create the energy that helps souls transition to become fully healthy ancestors. We will bring to life songs of your lineage once more.

The focus will be to make space for your own personal medicine to come forth as the ceremony you create will be an expression of your essence. The intention is to create space and healing and transformation such that each person leaves inspired and able to create a ritual or ceremony for community or infuse what you’ve learned into what you already offer.

During the training, we will also be engaging in the energies of creativity. There will be an emphasis on music and drawing a song from each person to be worked with in ceremony. We will look at what comes up to block people from ritual and transformation, such as entities and beings with energy that does not have healing or our best interests in mind. We will be in dialogue about how to navigate these energies and put this into practice together. There will also be sound healing, drum birthing, and cultural inclusivity circles so as to hold space for the dynamic energies of this work.

CocoVivo Retreat Center:

The retreat center and land that will hold us has been sought after and chosen with great mindfulness and love.  The clear energy there will be supportive to our work. The land is lovingly tended by a family that holds space for inclusivity and sensitivity to environmental impact. The land is in the jungle and the animals and the other living beings there are protected and honored.

CocoVivo, our home for the duration of our journey, is hidden at the southern tip of Isle de San Cristobal outside of Boca del Toro, Panama. The only way to get to the island is by boat. Their goal is to acknowledge human's impact on the earth and the ocean, and they strive to maintain a healthy role in the eco-system. The retreat runs off of solar power, the water used is from collected rain water, there is composting toilets, gardens, and a mindfulness placed on recycling and low to no waste and biodegradable products- including soaps. CocoVivo also maintains strong relationships with the local community of Tierra Oscurra, by providing employment opportunities, purchasing local produce and offering housing space to local Ngobe Bugle workers and trades people. They aim to support and strengthen the regional development and standard of living while remaining open to learning new ways of interacting with nature with awe and gratitude, and of decreasing the destructive impact.


Sleeping arrangements will be assigned and sharing beds with another attendee is a likelihood. Upon registration, you will be given the opportunity to express your preferences in how you’ll be assigned a space.
