This is a creative process that can help you connect you to your four Primary Blood Lines, and includes a meditative drawing as well as an ancestral ceremony where we honor these four Ancestral Lineages. We are working with your mother's mother's lineage, your father's father's lineage, your mother's father's lineage, as well as your father's mother's lineage. This process will help you to understand how you are connected to these ancestral lines, and how they might influence your life. This Art Ceremony will also help you to establish a creative and healing relationship with your ancestral lineages and may help you harmonize your ancestral connections.
Connect to Your four primary Ancestral Lineages with Art and Ceremony.
Working with your "Ancestral Lineages" will allow you to explore your four Primary Family Blood Lineages with the help of Art. We are working with the four directions North, South, East and West and will place each family line in one of those directions. You might receive information about the state of your ancestral lineages through colors or shapes, and help heal your ancestral connection with this practice.
Before we begin with the actual drawing, I 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. After the drawing, we will again close with a ceremony, to ground the energies and bring the process to completion. I will provide more detailed suggestions for these ceremonies once you have signed up.
This workshop is part of the Ancestral Arts Series that I offer in creative collaboration with Sama Morningstar from the Womb Centered Healing Temple. There will be a "Writing from the Womb" workshop that corresponds to this drawing process and will help you deepen the connection that you established through the drawing.
In these Ancestral Arts writing workshops Sama will guide us into womb centered visionary journeys supported by the drawings we create with Antje. During these journeys we will activate our Womb Wisdom Voices and write this wisdom out. We will have the opportunity to share with each other the wisdom that comes forth, often receiving just as much from what others share and the process of sharing itself as we do from writing. In this way we validate our inner wisdom which is a healing process in and of itself.
