Upcoming Events and Workshops
Our events focus on supporting Cultural Repair. This work involves healing individual and historical trauma and disconnection of people from ancestral lineages and relationships to the earth, themselves, and other people. The processes used are nature connection, people connection, and traditional healing methods of specific lineages – to rebuilding a healthy relationship to humanity’s interactions with nature, self, and others.
My traditional training 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 the lineages of the San Bushman, European healers, and other healing lineages.
Cultural Repair is about repairing people’s fundamental relationship with nature, themselves, and each other. Especially for people who are suffering from the effects of genocide, colonization, and war — transforming the mindset of disconnection back to one of relationship.
One significant 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’s 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 one or two well-learned individuals would often facilitate the practices; 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 Facilitators 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 several 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”. The course provides the structure which allows us to have phone conversations, in-person meetings, provide teaching materials, and ensures a reciprocal exchange.
