Ancestral Healing resolves the pattern of energy at its source in the past, because issues resolved anywhere along the line short of the source will continue to be handed down to the descendants.  The presence of the dead among the living can cause illness, addition, madness, and ongoing frustration. Ancestral Healing resolves the pattern at the root of the issues/problems/symptoms that are affecting the client. Ancestral Healing clears the pattern from the unresolved energies from the source down the line in all the branches all the way to the living. And Ancestral Healing requires follow-up work for client that the practitioner must understand how to support.

Art by Mark Wagner

In this experiential training we will be working with the hardest Ancestral Healing a practitioner can face, his or her own. The restoration and renewal that will come to you after the class are a result of the healing work you do to clear the way to fully express your soul’s purpose as well as the cultivation of a strong working relationship you’re your Ancestral Helping Spirits. Your family, and your descendants will also benefit from the healing and the presence of True Ancestors where there were only the unresolved burdens of the dead.

The principles and practice of Actual Energy Clearing clarify how and why it is necessary to clear the unresolved energies of the ancestors. They are not stuck because they need soul retrievals or depossessions. They are stuck because they are still emotionally attached to the energies that were left unresolved in their lives.

This class is open to EVERYONE. This class is useful for everyone. There are no pre-requisites.

•  This is the practice Christina talks about constantly on Why Shamanism Now.
•  This is the practice at the heart of The Cycle Teachings.‚Äč
•  This is the practice that enables us to be in the world in a good way, no matter the circumstances.

This is a body-based clearing practice that works at the interface between the physical body and the energy body where we find our “felt sense” of things. No matter where the wounding comes from—past or present, physical or spiritual, mental or emotional—we hold it in the body forever, until we choose to clear it. And we can choose to clear it.

This process moves beyond insight, understanding, tapping, and wishful thinking into how to actually let energies go, giving us the tool we need to gain the freedom and emotional health needed to live our true dreams without distraction.  Come and learn effective and simple skills for clearing stubborn and persistent patterns we hold in the body.
