Ancestral Healing Practitioner Program
October 17 @ 10:00 am - October 20 @ 4:00 pm CDTPlease check website for details
In doing healing work, shamanic practitioners are trained to work in partnership with our helping spirits who aid in identifying recurring patterns and healing energy blockages. Ancestral healing work is no different – but due to the nature of the work, ancestral healing can present additional challenges.
The ancestors notice when we turn our attention to their family. Some want to be helpful, some are resistant, and those who are suffering are eager for the healing. They begin to lean in. Their direct presence in the healing space can influence the session and make the healing more difficult if the practitioner doesn’t have strong boundaries. By working on the family energy system in the spirit realms, we can lessen the possibility that the heavy ancestral energy will affect us or the client during the session.
The Ancestral Healing Practitioner Program is intended for practitioners with a shamanic healing practice or a complementary practice. Energy workers, body workers, therapists, and other mental health professionals who are “shamanic friendly” are also welcome.
Please note: The Ancestral Healing Practitioner Program is not for personal healing. If you are looking for personal healing, please schedule a private ancestral healing session. You are also welcome to sign up for Year 1 of the Red Thread, a personal ancestral healing program which works directly with you and your family system.
This practitioner program meets in-person three times for classroom instruction at a retreat center near Dodgeville, WI. It is an intermediate to advanced level program.
