This is a series of online events that include ancestral ceremonies, meditative drawing as well as writing processes. These creative activities will help you to get to know yourself more deeply and step into a conscious relationship with your own Ancestors. You will make the invisible threads between yourself and your Ancestors visible, and trace all those connections with the tip of your pen. You will learn about your Family Lineages and receive Ancestral Wisdom through colors, shapes, as well as writing. With this series of workshops, you can establish a creative and healing relationship with your ancestors.
We offer package deals if you join all the events (see prices below). Each event may also be booked individually (see descriptions for the single sessions below), and we offer special discounts if you choose to join both drawing and writing sessions.

A word about Ceremony:
Before we begin with the actual drawing and/or writing process, we will guide you through an ancestral ceremony and deep meditation. This ceremony serves to create a safe and protected space for your journey. We will also ask for permission from your ancestors, and invite guidance for your individual process. You are invited to create the physical, emotional, and mental space for this ceremony.
Your may for example cleanse and decorate the physical space around you, create an altar, bring offerings for your ancestors, or prepare yourself in any other way you feel called. Trusting your inner guidance in this process will be the first step to take. At the end, we will again close with a ceremony, to ground the energies and bring the creative process to completion.
We will provide more detailed suggestions for these ceremonies once you have signed up.

Sama Morningstar founded the Womb Centered Healing Temple in 2018 as a collaborative space to support people of all genders to learn about the importance of our experiences in and of the womb, heal the wounds inflicted on all of us by the womb abuse perpetrated within gender based hierarchies in society, and reclaim the power of the traditions of womb reverence that predate these systems. Out of her own personal journey healing from early childhood trauma founded in the domination model of relationship between men and women, she has emerged with a passionate devotion to remember, re-activate, and re-establish Womb Power as our center of personal power and inner guidance. Writing has been a consistent ally in her healing process and she has been leading weekly Writing from the Womb workshops for close to a year now in which she combines her visionary healing meditation journeys with the writing process, giving voice to ancestral and womb wisdom that has been silenced for far too long. She loves to share her experience of how living in embodied Womb Wisdom creates an abundant fountain of vitality that can nourish our dreams of correcting the course of humanity away from self destruction towards harmonious communion and belonging in the ecology of life.
