Jewish Ancestral Healing Immersion

February - May 2019

Every lineage includes loving and wise ancestors.  Ancestral support amplifies personal vitality and enhances communal well-being.  Cultivating connection with these bright and benevolent ancestors creates ease with living family members and helps clarify one's life-path, relationships and purpose.  This connection can be a great support toward healing trauma as well as anchoring ancestral blessing and gifts.

The Jewish Ancestral Healing Virtual Immersion begins with an introductory group video class followed by 3 personal sessions and a group completion call.  In the video call, we will review core aspects of the Ancestral Lineage Healing model - developed by Dr. Daniel Foor - and set clear intentions for the work.  Personal sessions with Taya Mâ begin with an assessment of the four primary bloodlines and continue toward connecting with an ancestral guide to anchor blessing from and healing through one of the lines. Audio and written text on core practices of Jewish Ancestor Reverence practices are shared with course participants bi-weekly. Participants are offered the opportunity to have a class partner to check in with bi-weekly and asked to engage altar and offering practice in accordance with what emerges in their ancestral connections.

The seven weeks between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot - known as the period of counting the Omer - invite us on an intentional journey from constriction to pleasure, union & revelation. The Omer offers a focused opportunity to bring attention to patterns we desire to transform.

In Sex and the Sephirot, we’ll engage the Omer toward experiencing greater erotic presence, deepening our commitment to sex that is nourishing and healthful for us, and embracing ritual practices of self-pleasure - or pleasure with partners - amidst the support and container of sex-positive community and joyfull accountability.

This offering is for you if: You have a pattern around self-pleasure or sex with partners that you want to transform. You feel excited - and perhaps a little nervous - about being held in a lovingly tended group container to additionally integrate the sacred into your erotic life. You desire to claim pleasure as prayer.
