Welcome to Systemic Ritual and Ancestral work. In the video above Aleksandra interviews Daan van Kampenhout, founder of Systemic Ritual method, about ancestors, family constellations, and Systemic Ritual development. This conversation is part of the series Aleksandra has conducted with various practitioners around the world. Full Playlist could be found here.
Systemic Ritual combines systemic family constellations method with shamanic ritual to create a healing and resourcing process that allows us to connect with wider ancestral fields, their resources, strength and gifts. Aleksandra trained with Daan in Mexico, Vienna, Paris and is now supporting his workshops and trainings around the world. She runs regular systemic ritual workshops in London and it is possible to request a personalised systemic ritual on a specific theme. Rituals can be designed for: birthdays, giving birth, motherhood and fatherhood, coming of age, death and grieving, healing, resourcing, separation, support, change in circumstance or moving to a new place. For more details please contact Aleksandra.
Aleksandra passionately believes in the power of ancestors to support the lives of their descendants, and the responsibility we all hold of becoming good ancestors to the generations to come. Introducing systemic ritual into personal practice could help you begin the journey of getting to know the gifts your ancestors have for you, connecting with the resources that available. Our ancestors have experienced all that we experienced, they have wisdom to share, they had time to learn and observe, in a way we haven't yet. We are directly linked to our ancestors through our life, to the good and the not so good, with family constellations we might be able to shift the entanglements that weaken us and with ritual we might learn to focus on the strength available to us.
To help with your journey of ancestral work Aleksandra put together a resource to introduce to your personal practice at home.
Ancestral Resources Rituals for Home Practice
I created an online resource for anyone to be able to access the gifts and resources of their ancestral lines. With this offer you receive access to three guided rituals, two meditations and handouts - taking you step by step through creating your own ancestral ritual for healing, for balance, for harmony and just to start connecting to all the resources in your wider family systems. In our lives we often focus on the trauma that we received through generations and that we now have to deal with; but we also received a foundation for becoming who we are, for our strength and resilience; and if we begin to pay attention we are able to continue to receive their support. Everything that we experience today, everything we feel, has already had a place at some point for our ancestors, they've been through it and developed ways to cope, process, transform it for the better, and we can access this wisdom through ritual, intention, and prayer.
- Three videos will tell you about three rituals - connecting with ancestral field; bringing balance to it; and good endings.
- Two audio meditations will help you prepare for each ritual and to end it.
- Step by step handouts list everything you need to set it up and do it.
The important thing is to be creative. To take guidance, create structure and then fill it up with your own content, relevant for your situation, for your intention, for your life. Enjoy!
On receipt of payment log in details will be sent to you to access the practice page.
A playlist of suggestions on how to begin your own practice connecting with your ancestors. Aleksandra talks to practitioners in South Africa, UK, and the Netherlands asking them to suggest a simple ritual, ceremony or first step to begin on this journey of ancestral work. This is such a rich and empowering practice creating a feeling of support, being guided and belonging. Maybe it will inspire you to get started.
