This is a very special and deep process, that includes a meditative drawing as well as an ancestral ceremony. It will help you become aware of how unique and amazing you are, how many individuals it took to create you, and how you are connected to this large family through invisible threads. You will make those threads visible for yourself, and trace all those connections with the tip of your pen. This is a creative way to honor and establish a healing relationship with your ancestors.
Connect to Seven Generations before you with Art and Ceremony.
The "Ancestral Mandala" offers a creative way to receive wisdom and insights from deep layers of your subconscious. This practice can help you to heal your ancestral lines and stop the transference of dysfunction by tapping into a new consciousness, which is that of a creator of you life. You will learn to make space for the seven generations before you, and bring them to life in a beautiful and harmonious visual way.
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.
