Walking with Ancestors: Year of Ritual
Welcome to this 12 months journey with your ancestors. Walking the wheel of the year, we are going to weave ancestral practice and everyday life into a beautiful pattern of ritual and community. We'll meet monthly on zoom to connect with our ancestors and co-create our life experiences with them. It is about healing, wellbeing, belonging, dreaming and being supported.
We'll follow the following structure throughout the year:
18 Jan - Wheel of the Year with Ancestors Ritual
15 Feb - Beyond known: Ancient Ancestors Ritual
15 Mar - Birth Ritual (Finding your place in your lineage)
19 Apr - Wheel of Life and Ancestors Ritual
17 May - Mother's line Ritual
21 June - Father's line Ritual
19 July - Ancestral Resources for whole Family
16 Aug - Wheel of Homecoming Ritual
20 Sep - Wheel of Ancestral Suffering release Ritual
25 Oct - Lost Dreams Ritual
15 Nov - Endings Ritual
13 Dec - Integration Ritual
Dates and themes are subject to change through the year in case of unforeseen circumstance. You'll be notified of any changes in advance where possible.
Walking this wheel together we will dive deep into ancestral lineages, recent and ancient, releasing old patterns, reconnecting with ancestral support and resources. Rituals are held monthly so that there is plenty of time for integration and processing and any follow up work required after the ritual.
Whole year membership includes three bonus sessions on creating your own ritual, using language in ritual and building your family tree as a ritual. Signing up to the whole journey allows you to track your progress better, taking each step one at a time at the same time building on the previous work. If you miss a ritual for some reason we'll record it for you and you'll have access to it for that month. Full membership also allows you to save money compared to 12 drop in sessions. Concession membership does not.
How does it work?
Systemic ritual is a therapeutic method combining shamanic and systemic elements, working with ground plans, the wheel and technique of representing. It creates a safe framework to access deep archetypal patterns and dynamics. Each monthly circle begins with a check in, a meditation to settle in and call in the ancestors, explanation of the ritual and its principles and then held space to conduct your own ritual at the privacy and safety of your own home while Aleksandra is drumming and chanting to support your process. Rituals are both individual and collective tapping into wider systemic connections. With time these monthly circles become a community of those who integrate ritual into everyday life for increased wellbeing.
The Wheel of the Year
The schedule of these monthly rituals follows the wheel of the year. Beginning in the North, in winter (for Northern hemisphere) we begin with setting the intention for the year and connecting with the Great Mystery; proceeding to work with the energy of the East, of new beginnings we then move to the South, diving deeper into family dynamics; followed by release and endings work in the West and integration as we transition back into the North in the end of 2021. In the context of each direction and season, each ritual adds a layer to the previous one on a personal level and all of 12 rituals incorporate ancestral practice and healing.
