Honoring The Ancestors and Appalachia

Honoring the ancestors and Appalachia,  Knoxville Tennessee

Don't let the title fool you...this class is for anyone who wishes to learn the ways of giving homage to their ancestors-- Appalachian and otherWise. 🍁🔥🍂🍃 


As we descend from hot summer days into the shorter days of autumn, the leaves demonstrate the beauty of letting go, the shadows grow longer, and the veil thins- giving way to All Hallow's Eve, aka Samhain. This holiday has many traditions across all cultures, but perhaps the largest among them were honoring and remembrance of the ancestors-- a  long lost and nearly forgotten tradition. Many religious traditions have woven this practice with confusion and fear in minds of the masses, yet it brings MUCH healing-- not only for us, but for those who have gone before us and, yes...even this precious land we live on. Some of our ancestors and the ancestors of the original inhabitants of these mountains had  hard lives and maybe harder deaths. It is because of their life and  sacrifices that we live today, and that is worth more than any price you can put on it. 

  • You will learn what ancestor/land reverence IS, what is NOT, and the *many* various ways in which you can honor either or both.
  • You will learn how to safely, respectfully and confidently engage with ancestors and spirits of the land for purposes of gratitude and healing intentions
  • Learn how to build and maintain an ancestor  shrine, and so much more!
  •  Materials will be provided, and upon registration for the class you will receive instructions for optional items you may wish to bring. 

These seats will fast so get yours now!

 

Sunday, October 20, 2019, 3PM-5PM

Energy exchange: $50

Class size is limited to honor the work.

"Lo there do I see my father; 

Lo there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers; 

Lo there do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. 

Lo, they do call me, they bid me take my place among them, 

In the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live  forever."

Sacred Alchemy through Shamanic Journeying

Sacred Alchemy through shamanic Journeying Knoxville TN  shamanic healer

The natural world has two aspects: ordinary everyday awareness, formed by our habitual behaviors, patterns of belief, social norms, and cultural conditioning; and a second non-ordinary or expanded awareness accessed through intermediate or altered states, or ecstatic trance, induced by shamanic practices like drumming, sound, scent, and such. In addition to learning ways of seeing and knowing in the physical world, we will engage in shamanic journeying to explore the Upper and Lower Worlds, both instrumental in helping us to awaken our understanding of the shadow and celestial realms for the benefit of ourselves and others.
