ANCESTRAL LINEAGE HEALING

I am honored to have the backing of my mentor, Dr. Daniel Foor, to offer sessions in Ancestral Lineage Healing while I complete my hours toward certification. Ancestral healing is spiritually-grounded, deep work that empowers you to connect, repair and nurture relationships with your own wise and loving ancestors. This approach is an effective, securely held, ritual process (not to be confused with conventional therapy) which allows you to directly access the supportive guidance of your lineage ancestors and reclaim the gifts that are your birthright.

This practical, experiential process combines ritual, guided visioning, dreamwork and offering practices. There are no prerequisites, however, prior experience with inner work and relation with spirit gides/teachers are both helpful. I am accepting private clients for one-on-one phone and Zoom sessions at a reduced rate while I complete my practitioner hours.

MEDICINE KEEPER: SPRING AWAKENING!

I'm a busy bee this season, working on numerous rare butterfly projects and interactive art rituals like Malaise Airways and House of the Quivering Heart ((❤️)) and have decided not to offer the Spring Awakening series this year. Stay tuned for more Medicine Keeper classes later this year.
