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 online 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 are 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.
Aleksandra has a variety of resources available to start you on this journey. A weekly email that she sends out usually includes a ritual or some systemic insights and is a good place to start. You can sign up here.
Below are some of the recorded resources from a set of introductory guided rituals to a more advanced Becoming a Good Ancestor programme that takes you on a path of twelve months rituals, meditations and nature medicine work. You can also find a bit more on ancestors on Modern Ancestral Practice page.
Walking with Ancestors Rituals
A journey of 12 ancestral rituals on a variety of themes.
This set is a series of 12 recordings of guidance to doing your own ancestral rituals at home and in nature. Each ritual could be a stand alone practice to deepen your relationship with your ancestors. Together they create a journey that is structured around the energy of the Wheel of the Four Directions.
Rituals that hold the energy of the new beginning (East) - like birth and the wheel of life;
rituals that are full of healing power (South) working on your paternal and maternal lines;
rituals that are aimed at releasing what no longer serves you (West) like letting go of the old dreams and ancestral suffering;
and rituals that are connecting you to the divine and ancestral support and resources (North).
There is a bonus ritual to introduce you to the Wheel of the Four Direction and to get to know its magic.
Why would you want to do a ritual?

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.
