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.
