Ancestral Healing and Dream Archaeology
Workshop with Robert Moss, Hosted by Jane Carleton
Saturday – Sunday November 23 & 24, 2019 - Berkeley, CA
The ancestors are calling, calling. We are talking about ancestors in three senses: the ancestors of your bloodlines, and of the lands where you live or travel, and of your soul family across time and place.
In this soul-centered workshop, we’ll explore loving and effective ways to heal our relations with the departed through the powerful techniques of Active Dreaming, Robert’s original synthesis of shamanism and dreamwork.
We have natural communication with the departed in our dreams, and for many dreamers this is direct and life-changing evidence of the reality of the soul and its survival of physical death. The departed appear in our dreams either because they have not really left, or because they come visiting, or because in dreaming we enter their realms. These encounters offer us important opportunities for healing, closure and giving or receiving forgiveness and guidance.
Our departed may come as “family angels”, with life-supporting counsel and information. Or they may need help and guidance from us - because they have unfinished business or are lost or confused or crippled by guilt or unable to detach from old environments and addictions. In such cases, as Yeats observed, the living may be able to “assist the imaginations of the dead.”
We will seek timely and helpful communication with the departed. We will share personal experiences and needs and develop the skills and spiritual resources to serve as guides and healers for survivors, and for the departed themselves.
We will develop personal rituals to honor our ancestors. We’ll learn that healing and forgiveness are always available, across the apparent barrier of death. We’ll learn methods of spiritual release to free ourselves, and our departed, from ancestral karma and unhappy family histories. We will connect with spiritual guides and build the deep circle energy that makes the extraordinary easy.
