The SCPN Presents

Ancestral Healing
with Irene Ammar
SCPN Board Elections

Our ancestors make up a significant part of our spiritual ecosystem, whether we engage with them ritually or not. In this time of year when many traditions bring focus to the ancestors, how can we relate to them in a way that is safe, reliable, and beneficial?

In this talk we will be discussing the ancestors, our relation to them, and what kinds of trouble are likely to be involved in the ancestral realm, as well as how to safely engage with these troubles and invite healing into our lineages. This safety is especially important in seasonal times when the veils between spirit and incarnated form are thin. A few helpful protective plant medicines will be touched on.

You will have the chance, through guided visioning, to connect with anancestral guide, and relate with the bright, well energies that precede all of us in our ancestral ecosystems, no matter how (un)well our recent families may be.

Irene Ammar offers steadfast ritual support for ancestral healing and reconnection. She has trained in systems of bodywork and herbal medicine and worked especially with people living with illness, the dying, and those healing from trauma. She loves working with ancestral repair around babies and conscious parenting and with those facing death or struggling with illness.

Her people are from Germany, Ireland, England, Scandinavia, and Portugal, and she draws inspiration from the Earth-centered wisdoms of ancient Europe. She lives with her family on rightfully Pomo lands in Northern California and takes seriously the need to safely engage with collective harms so the tides can turn toward health in all of our families and communities.
