Modern Ancestral Practice Rituals - Step 2
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.

rituals and movement
Movement and Ritual - Stepping into a New Story
A recording of a workshop that combines movement and dance with ritual with ancestors. In this ritual we create a journey to transition from what is to the next step. We work with ancestors that support the movement and those that can help us stay where we are. We take ourselves to the place of the New Story, whether it is specific and known or not. Before the ritual a guided movement meditation takes you deeper into your body awareness to prepare for the ritual.
Movement and Ritual - Inner Community

In this ritual we work with the concept of community ancestors - who are they and how do they influence our behaviour and connection to our community today. Before the ritual a guided movement meditation takes you deeper into your body awareness to prepare for the ritual.
Movement and Ritual - Homecoming
A recording of a workshop that combines movement and dance with ritual with ancestors. In this ritual we work with four types of ancestors - of the land we come from, the land we are in, future land and ancestors of the soul. We meet them on the medicine wheel and get to know them to fully arrive home to own selves. Before the ritual a guided movement meditation takes you deeper into your body awareness to prepare for the ritual.
