Tending the Ancestors...with Michal Mugrage

Tending the Ancestors: Establishing Spiritual Relationship & Beginning Lineage Healing

4 Thursday evenings

October 3 - 24, 2019

Time: 6:30 - 9pm

Cost: $125 for the series

You are linked to your ancestors not only physically but also energetically - receiving imprints of conditioning, traumas, and challenges as well as positive powers and gifts through the energetic field of your ancestral lineage that is written in your very DNA.

Sometimes the difficulties experienced in your life, and your struggles to achieve your desires and to stay in connection to your own truth and authentic expression can be traced to these influences.  The good news is this filed of energy can be changed!

 

Come explore practices and sacred ceremony that shifts, heals, and clears the ancient burdens and beliefs carried over from the past into your present.  Together, supporting each other, we will explore:

  • Meeting a compassionate, loving ancestral guardian who can guide you in claiming the fits and powers of your lineages, and assist in the family healing that will take place.
  • Identifying and supporting the release of ancestral trauma and conditioning in both your Mother's and your Father's lines.
  • Practice a simple but potent ceremony for offering love and healing to 12 generations of ancestors on both sides, which creates positive shifts for you and your children and/or future generations.

YOU ARE THE ONE THEY'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!

 

Michal Mugrage is an initiated shamanic practitioner and an experienced spiritual advisor who has been providing spiritual healing support and teachings on Nature and animism-based relationships and subtle energy work internationally for over 25 years. Her studies with Ariann Thomas, Betsy Bergstrom, Carla Meeske, Desda Zuckerman and her heart teacher, the Tamang (Tibetan/Nepalese) Grandmother Aama Bombo Buddhi Maya Lama, as well as her own years of experience, weave together this unique offering.
