This work is typically called Cultural Repair. This work involves various types of healing individual and historic trauma and disconnection of people from ancestral lineages and relationships to the earth, themselves, and other people. The processes used are nature, including tracking, bird language, seasonal and knowledge of place. We also implore the connection to the elements and traditional healing methods of specific lineages.
This is all foundational to rebuilding a healthy relationship to humanities interactions to nature, self, and others. My traditional training this comes from my 30 years of working with various lineages, including the Woptura (Chipps) Lineage. Of which I’m a recognized lineage holder with documentation. I also work with lineages of the San Bushman, European healers, and other healing lineages.
One major aspect that we focus on as part of the healing process is what I typically call the Advanced Connection Practices. These are the ancient rituals and rites which facilitate deepening people connection and ensuring their healthy movement around the wheel of life. Within complete cultures, this would have been the part of all the entire community’s responsibility, but the practices would often be facilitated by one or two well-learned individuals; what we call Advanced Connection Practice Facilitators. In the postmodern world, we have a severe shortage of Advanced Connection Practice Facilitators which has created a bottleneck in the Cultural Repair movement. With the training and permission of the lineages I’ve been initiated in, I am training Advanced Connection Practice Facilitator around the world.
Understand that a personal healing journey is a lifetime journey, as is being an Advanced Connection Practice Facilitator. This work takes a lifetime commitment and at each stage, a facilitator holds more responsibility. For those who have the desire and the commitment to walk this path, I will walk beside you.
There are a number of ways to enter into a personal healing journey or make the commitment to become an Advanced Connection Practice facilitator with me. The way we structure the initial relationship is often via a “course”. This provides the structure which allows us to have phone conversations, in-person meetings, provide teaching materials, and ensures a reciprocal exchange.
At the heart of the Helper’s Journey is a unique, powerful and ancient body of knowledge full of understanding, wisdom, and experience. This has been combined with modern therapies and technologies. These teachings are not just theoretical or philosophical, they have been tried and tested in the crucible of life and guided by real-life experience in modern times.
