During this time of year the veils between the worlds are thin, making it a potent time to honor our lineages by invoking them into our circle and by journeying to the Otherworld. 

As with all facets of our lives, our ancestral lineages hold both light and shadow. In North American modern culture, we are encouraged to bypass the reality of death, which often entails the forgetting or even intentional emotional erasure of our ancestors. This cultural disconnection is harmful individually and collectively. The restoration of relationship with our ancestors helps us face the reality of our own eventual death and to enhance our everyday lives.

The intent of this ceremony is to honor the lives of our ancestors and to acknowledge the gifts and the wounds we’ve inherited from them. Luisa and participants will create a ceremonial container, share a wisdom teaching, and experience two healing journeys.

Prerequisite: No previous experience is necessary, though a familiarity with the shamanic journey technique* will enhance your experience.
* the shamanic journey technique = a working relationship with your power animal, understanding of the three shamanic worlds, a departure point in nature.

“…my papa has been dead all these years, and yet he is more real to me than almost anybody else. He never goes out of my life. I talk to him and consult him all the time. The older I grow, the better I know him and the more I understand him.”
—from My Ántonia, by Willa Cather

“Death is not an outrage.”
