California: Jewish Ancestral Healing Daylong Workshop - with Yael Schonzeit & Elsa Asher

  • Narrow Bridge Candles Cloverdale, CA USA (map)

Facilitated by ancestral healing practitioners Elsa Asher and Yael Schonzeit

Every lineage includes wise and loving ancestors. In this daylong workshop, we will engage  in ancestor reverence rituals rooted in Jewish tradition and discuss the fundamentals of Ancestral Lineage Healing according to the Ancestral Medicine model. Through ritual, experiential practice and group dialogue, we will explore practices for building relationships with well ancestors as a source of blessing, support and healing, while creating boundaries and support for troubled dead in need of assistance. While this workshop is grounded in Jewish praxis and traditions, it is open to all seeking connection, healing or support with their ancestors towards deeper wellness. There are no prerequisites for this workshop, though prior experience with inner work and spiritual practice is helpful.
