Deeper Roots – Feeding our Ancestors
Saturday April 9, from 10 am till 10 pm
At Earthlands, Petersham MA
Facilitated by Katja Esser and Laney Goodman
~Scent Free Space/Alcohol Drug Free ~
~Limited to 20 people, please use this paypal link to sign up and save your space- thanks.
Cost: $75~ Day long ceremony
We are approaching the time of year when the earth begins to awaken and readies for her birth. Not all her children will have made it through the winter and their bodies turn to the gift of compost that feeds the new life. So do we have a connection to our lineage of our beloved dead who’s stories and choices have shaped our lives and have become the fertile soil for our birth.
Are you someone who knows little about your ancestors and would like to find a way to deepen your connection with them? Are you someone who struggles with what you know about your ancestors because it was difficult and full of hardship? Do you feel that you do not really know how to relate to them and feel alienated from that part of your heritage? Are you looking to come into peace with them and begin to appreciate them for who they were and forgive? Do you want to keep their stories alive? Are you missing your beloved ancestors and are looking for a way to honor and celebrate your relationship with them in a meaningful and heartfelt way? Or are you ready to bring them in as allies guiding you through life?
We come together in a daylong ceremony/workshop in remembrance of our ancestors and deepen our relationship with them. With our ancestors we move collectively through a deep process of story, transformational healing work, shrine building, various feeding of the ancestors rituals, and end with a sacred fire. It is a dive into container of the ancestors where we get touched by the beauty that unfolds as we express what lives in our heart through our creativity, prayers, and journeys. How we move forward has a lot to do with how we complete our endings.
This is a very powerful day in which the presence of the ancestors is palpable. Katja Esser and Laney Goodman, each gifted ceremonialists, come together to facilitate you through this process of feeding the ancestors and healing our relationships with them. Expect to come away with a deeper connection as the ancestors are eager to assist us and reach out to us.
Cost for the day $75
Overnight possibilities for $35 a night lodge, $15 a night tenting
We will each bring a potluck dish to cover our meals.
More information follows as to what to bring and prepare for as it is somewhat involved.

When I get your deposit I will send you the address of the Venue and “How to Prepare” information. The “what to bring” list will soon follow.
I feel that it is time for us all to come together to co-create this gathering For All Our Relations…each one of us will bring our own Medicine to this journey as we put the call out to All Beings and Elementals…then listen to the Being or Elemental that will answer each one of us during this sacred weekend.
Together we will journey deep and long to find solace, answers and how to take our next steps.
The Elementals and All Beings are speaking and shaking us down to our core.
Holders and bringing their Medicine this year…
~ Hawklyn, animal communicator, will be bringing the Medicine of Air and the Trees…along with our winged sister, Lady Z. a Red Tailed Hawk
~Cherese Mathews holding for her 7th year, bringing the Medicine of the Earth and our Bodies with dance, shapeshifting and creating masks.
~ Suzette Pena bringing her Fire Medicine and ancient wisdom of Tribe.
~ Adhi Two Owls~ A Global Shaman- bringing her Medicine of deep knowing by weaving sacred geometry, shamanic journeys and the alchemy of inner knowing.
~ And myself… Laney Goodman, bringing my Medicine of the Drum and the Sacred Chant along with the Medicine teachings and wisdom from all the Beings and Elementals that I have been working with all my life and I will lead us in shamanic journeying as well…and of course the MOTHER DRUM will hold us all.
Then there is YOU.… without you there would be no Dance, no healing of the Beings and Elementals and in turn ourselves.
Please bring your own Medicine and join your sisters in this much needed work as we give voice to the voiceless and bring healing and awareness for everyone.
We will hold Council and give voice to the “voiceless” and it will be an amazing healing for us all to witness.
We will drum, chant and dance with the MOTHER DRUM …along with all kinds of drums and rhythm instruments.
We will have chants, poetry, spoken word, story telling… as we dance and speak for these Beings and Elementals all night long on Saturday night.
This is the “Call” and our Mother Earth is calling you…
CAN YOU HEAR HER CALL?
Come celebrate and join your sacred sisters as we continue our Journey together in perfect love and in perfect trust.
Love to you all,
Laney~ Singing Wolf
